Description: The Weekly Alibi, formerly NuCity, is a free alternative weekly that emphasizes Albuquerque politics, culture, and entertainment but isn’t afraid to venture into Santa Fe, too. The tabloid appeals to Santa Feans because of its irreverence and strong counterculture voice as well as its in-depth coverage of art and music. It also contains an extensive “personals” section toward the back with some truly off-the-wall ads that make for great reading even if you’re not in the market. The freebie has a circulation of 46,492 and is available at newsstands, news racks, coffee shops, bookstores, and other locations throughout metro Albuquerque and Santa Fe.
