Pasatiempo - - Onstage This Week -

On Thurs­day, Sept. 9, Will Shus­ter’s Zo­zo­bra gets what’s com­ing to him. It’s been a rough year, and there still seems to be plenty of gloom to go around. If you feel like com­mis­er­at­ing af­ter the big guy gets s’mored, am­ble over to Cow­girl BBQ (319 S. Guadalupe St., 982-2565) for a 9 p.m. per­for­mance by fe­male­fronted old-time folk trio

Hur­ray for the Riff Raff.

Tour­ing in sup­port of its

sec­ond al­bum, Young Blood Blues, the New Or­leans en­sem­ble plays songs with no short­age of sad­ness and heartache. Luck­ily, weep­ing bal­lads rife with mourn­ful har­monies and fid­dle min­gle with up­beat num­bers of­fer­ing plucky banjo and elec­tric bass, al­low­ing you to cry in your beer be­tween mul­ti­ple “Que Vi­vas!”

Sam Doores & the Tum­ble­weeds open, and

there’s a $3 cover charge. This sum­mer, the pe­riod-in­stru­ment four­some Agave Baroque, con­sist­ing of vi­o­lin, vi­ola da gamba, gui­tar, and harp­si­chord, recorded a CD of mu­sic by the mid-Baroque English com­poser Henry Pur­cell. The group trav­els from its base in the Bay Area to of­fer a con­cert at 1 p.m. Satur­day, Sept. 4, at the John­sons

of Madrid Gal­leries (2843 N.M. 14, Madrid; 471-1054), joined by two New Mex­i­can mu­si­cians: vi­ola da gam­bist Mary

Springfels and harp­si­chordist Kath­leen McIn­tosh. Pur­cell is on the docket, along with mu­sic by his 17th-cen­tury pre­de­ces­sors Christo­pher Simp­son and Matthew Locke. A $10 do­na­tion is re­quested.

Mu­sic from An­gel Fire con­cludes its sea­son at 2 p.m. Sun­day, Sept. 5, by cel­e­brat­ing the re­mark­able mu­si­cal cou­ple Robert and Clara Schu­mann. Bas­soon­ist Frank Morelli of­fers Robert’s Three Ro­mances (op. 94), orig­i­nally for oboe, and vi­o­lin­ist Ida Kavafian plays Clara’s Three

Ro­mances (op. 22). Pi­anist Gilles Von­sat­tel ac­com­pa­nies them in these short but cap­ti­vat­ing pieces from the mid-19th cen­tury. Also on the pro­gram is Beethoven’s ev­er­green Pi­ano-and-Winds Quin­tet and a new work by Daniel Shapiro. The con­cert takes place at the An­gel Fire Com­mu­nity

Cen­ter (15 CS Ranch Road). Call 575-377-3233 or 888-377-3300 or visit www.mu­sicfro­man­gelfire.org for tick­ets, which cost $30. Mari­achi mu­sic and Fi­es­tas de Santa Fe go to­gether like honey and sopaip­il­las, and you have nu­mer­ous op­por­tu­ni­ties to catch a strolling en­sem­ble down­town or see one on­stage over the next few days. If you miss the Mari­achi Ex­trav­a­ganza at the Santa Fe Opera on Wed­nes­day, Sept. 8, fear not. At 2 p.m. Thurs­day,

Sept. 9, the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.) hosts a Mari­achi Mati­nee with per­for­mances by New York’s Mari­achi Ta­p­a­tio de Al­varo Paulino; a Po­joaque Val­ley-based folk­lórico dance group; Mae­gan Pacheco; and oth­ers. Tick­ets, $5, are avail­able from the Len­sic box of­fice, 988-1234, www.tick­etssantafe.org.
