In Carrizozo:

Carrizozo Music, Inc. presents the Comanche Boyz from the Mescalero Apache Tribe in a First Nation Professional Drum and Dance Exhibition.   The free performance starts at 6 PM on Thursday, October 12 in the Carrizozo School Old Gym.    The group will explain the North and South drums, various dances, costumes and their history, and then perform dances, singing and drumming for the audience.  Horace Comanche formed the Comanche Boyz with his sons and now the group includes his wife Kara and other members of the tribe.  A school performance/demo at 3 PM is open to the public.  Thanks to a grant from NM Arts and the NEA for funding this performance.

A pre-concert Navajo Taco dinner will be served in the school courtyard by the gazebo by the Carrizozo School Culinary Arts Class to help fund equipment and supplies used by the class, and to enable students to enter cooking competitions.  The dinner includes a drink and dessert.   Advance tickets are $10 and are $12 at the door.  For ticket information, call or text Carol Wilson at 1-575-799-8707.  The culinary arts class prepares students for various jobs in the food industry including food prep, cooking and teaches skills to those applying to cooking school.

Sorry - just have to share this (you know my weird humor)  "We got the beat - Everybody get on your feet - We got the beat -  We know you can dance to the beat- We got the beat - Jumpin',get down -  We got the beat - Round and round and round - We got the beat. " Yeah - use to listen to the Go-Gos.  Hope we can stomp some on Thursday, it would do the soul good.
