Frogfest re­turns for its fifth year at the

Santa Fe Brew­ing Com­pany (37 Fire Place) on Sun­day, May 30. Fea­tur­ing 15 bands and run­ning from noon to

mid­night, the fes­ti­val is a cel­e­bra­tion of artists signed to Santa Fe’s Frogville la­bel. Amer­i­cana, blue­grass, and folk rule the day. New to the ros­ter this year is An­gola Farms, a psy­che­delic garage-blues punk out­fit. Main­stays of the party Hun­dred Year Flood and

Goshen close out the show. Tick­ets are $12 in ad­vance, $15 at the door. There’s no charge for kids un­der 12. Visit www.santafebrew­ing.com for de­tails.

Blues-rocker Tins­ley El­lis plays on The Hill on Fri­day, May 28, as part of the 2010 Los Alamos

Sum­mer Con­cert Se­ries. More than a dozen mu­si­cal acts — among them the Peter Case Band, El­iza Gilkyson, the Jimmy Stadler Band, and Nick Cur­ran & the Lowlifes — are sched­uled in the se­ries, which runs through Aug. 27. All shows are free and be­gin at 7 p.m. The venues vary; see www.gor­don­scon­certs.com or call 661-4891. At 57 years old, Robert Cray may be young for a blues­man. But with a few Gram­mys in hand and even a short stint on MTV, Cray has made in­roads into the main­stream that few blues artists have been able to achieve. His style owes as much to throaty R&B and 1970s South­ern soul as it does to 12-bar blues. Cray and his band take the stage of the Len­sic Per­form­ing

Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.) at 7:30 p.m. Tues­day, June 1. Tick­ets, $29 to $48, are avail­able by call­ing 988-1234 and on­line at www.tick­et­santafe.com. The pre­miere of Gus­tav Mahler’s First Sym­phony in 1889 was a fi­asco. “My friends bash­fully avoided me after­ward,” the com­poser later re­called. “No­body dared talk to me about the per­for­mance and my work.” To­day the piece is revered as one of the most ex­tra­or­di­nary first sym­phonies ever writ­ten. The Santa Fe

Com­mu­nity Or­ches­tra, con­ducted by Oliver Prezant, takes on this mon­u­ment of the sym­phonic reper­toire in a free

con­cert at St. Francis Au­di­to­rium, New Mex­ico Mu­seum of Art (107 W.

Palace Ave.) at 2:30 p.m. Sun­day,

May 30, along with a new work by Doug Frantz, win­ner of the or­ches­tra’s 2009-2010 Com­po­si­tion Com­pe­ti­tion. Call 466-4879.
