The band “Ottto” calls Venice, Calif. home, but they chose Juggernaut Music in Gallup as the backdrop for their music video for the song “Night Howler.”

“Ottto” consists of Bryan Ferretti (vocals and guitar), Tye Trujillo (bass), and Patrick “Triko” Chavez (drums). The band actually came to the idea of shooting in Gallup thanks to Tye’s dad, Robert Trujillo, who is the bass player for the world famous heavy metal band Metallica.

Gallup High senior art students had a chance to showcase their art to the community at the ART123 Gallery. This is Gallup High art teacher Kelly Stapp’s second year working with gallupARTS to promote her students’ work.

After five sequels to the original title, a new spin-off series emerged. This one details the life of boxer Adonis Creed, son of the character who Rocky Balboa fought in the first two movies. Both Creed and Creed II were surprisingly effective and included some exciting boxing sequences to boot. The...

Running Time: 8 Episodes (each between 34 and 39 minutes in length)

This documentary travel series is now available to stream on Apple TV+.

Apparently, 75-year-old Canadian comedic actor Eugene Levy isn’t much of a traveler. Despite this, Apple TV+ has convinced the performer to venture out across the planet for a new program on their streaming service. To be fair, the concept of putting a personality in front of the cameras as a reluctant visitor to new lands isn’t particularly uncommon. The British 2010 – 2012 series An Idiot Abroad and the 2017 – 2021 show Jack Whitehall: Travels with My Father did it well, though often taking glee in the...
