ON­STAGE ThiS wEEk

Pasatiempo - - Onstage This Week -

Af­ter it se­cured stu­dio space at Lar­ragoite Ele­men­tary School in late July, Fla­menco’s Next Gen­er­a­tion, María Benítez’s youth dance troupe at the In­sti­tute for Span­ish Arts, could breathe a sigh of re­lief and re­lax a lit­tle while pre­sent­ing its an­nual sum­mer­time per­for­mance se­ries at The Lodge at Santa Fe (750 N. St. Francis Drive). The troupe’s last Sun­day mati­nee of the sea­son is 2 p.m.

on Aug. 15. Tick­ets ($15, $5 for kids 15 and un­der) are avail­able at Kicks Dancewear, 801 Cer­ril­los Road (cash or checks only); by call­ing 490-0433; on­line at www.mari­aben­itez.com; or at the door.

The Reverend Hor­ton Heat, aka Jim Heath, aka The Rev, is a Santa Fe fa­vorite, not only for his beer-soaked, punk-kissed rock­a­billy stylings and his en­er­getic live show but also for his tour­ing loy­alty to New Mex­ico. His trio’s new­est plat­ter, Laughin’ and Cryin’, is a fiery mix of coun­tri­fied hee­haws and sonic ear blasters; the band plans to serve all that up to fans along with clas­sic Rev ravers this week­end. At 6:30 p.m. Thurs­day, Aug. 19, the Rev and spe­cial guests Split Lip Ray­field — an in­stru­men­tal cowpunk en­sem­ble from Wi­chita, Kansas — hit the Santa Fe Brew­ing Com­pany pa­tio stage (37 Fire Place, 424-3333). Tick­ets are $21 in ad­vance from the brew­ery and Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic (988-1234, www.tick­etssantafe.org ), $25 at the door. Af­ter the 23-year-old Bei­jing-born pi­anist Yuja Wang re­placed Radu Lupu in a con­certo per­for­mance five years ago, she be­came the go-to sub­sti­tute for orches­tras whose soloists can­celed, dep­u­tiz­ing for the likes of Martha Arg­erich, Ye­fim Bronf­man, and Mur­ray Per­ahia. Now she has plenty of en­gage­ments on her own and a wide-rang­ing reper­toire that tends to­ward the highly vir­tu­osic. Her noon recital for the Santa Fe Cham­ber Mu­sic Fes­ti­val

on Tues­day, Aug. 17, at St. Francis Au­di­to­rium (New Mex­ico Mu­seum of Art, 107 W. Palace Ave.) com­prises works by Prokofiev, Schu­mann, and Scri­abin. Tick­ets, which cost $15 and $20, are avail­able from Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic (988-1234, www.tick­etssantafe.org) or by call­ing 982-1890. Blend­ing soul, jazz, Afrobeat, and a heap­ing help­ing of funk, Staten Is­land en­sem­ble The Bu­dos Band knows its way around an ex­plo­sive brass sec­tion and brings a full, deep-ended pool of per­cus­sion to match it. Tour­ing in sup­port of its new al­bum, the Latin-tinged The Bu­dos

Band III, this 11-piece group is at its best when it’s play­ing live in front of an un­du­lat­ing sea of sweaty mu­sic lovers. Con­sider it land­locked sax on the beach. Catch The Bu­dos Band in Santa Fe at 9 p.m.

Thurs­day, Aug. 19, at Corazón (401 S. Guadalupe St., 983-4559). Tick­ets are $10 in ad­vance from Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic (www.tick­etssantafe.org, 988-1234) and $12 at the door.
