If Fi­es­tas de Santa Fe just isn’t your cuppa te­quila but you’re still in a cel­e­bra­tory mood, north may be the best di­rec­tion to head. Tucked be­tween Taos and the town’s ski val­ley is the Old Blink­ing Light Kitchen & Cock­tails (100 N.M. 150, 575-776-8787), a North­ern New Mex­ico in­sti­tu­tion in the foothills of the San­gre de Cristo moun­tains known for its lo­cal fla­vor, live mu­sic, and danc­ing. From Thurs­day to Satur­day, Sept. 9 to 11, the grassy sur­round­ings of the “OBL” are home to Michael Hearne’s Big Barn Dance Mu­sic Fes­ti­val, a pop­u­lar an­nual out­door event that draws re­gional and na­tional folk, rock, Western, and coun­try tal­ent. Be­sides the Taos band Michael Hearne and South by South­west, this year’s lineup in­cludes At­lanta folk-har­mony kings (and queens) Gir­ly­man, kid-friendly fam­ily duo Trout Fish­ing in Amer­ica, Nashville singer-song­writer Del­bert McClin­ton, The Rifters, and many oth­ers. A three-day pass is $95; a pass for Thurs­day costs $30; Fri­day, $35; Satur­day, $45. For a full sched­ule, on­line tick­ets, and more fes­ti­val in­for­ma­tion, visit www.big­barn­dance.com. Tick­ets are also avail­able by call­ing 575-776-8787, Ext. 2.
