El Paseo Bar & Grill’s sweat-and beer-soaked In­die Rocks! con­cert se­ries con­tin­ues at 9 p.m. Fri­day, Sept. 17, with per­for­mances by three Al­bu­querque bands, two of them fairly new to the Santa Fe scene. ’ Burque main­stay Lousy Robot, above, re­turns with its Pix­ies-es­que, in­tro­spec­tive power pop and driv­ing in­die rock. New­com­ers The Scrams de­liver a fist­ful of angsty, or­gan-heavy, ’ 60s-era garage rock. And baby-faced Sui­cide Lanes bring their bouncy cowpunk with a side of New York Dolls to the party. The 21-and-over show is $5 at 208 Gal­is­teo St.; call 992-2848.

The Ar­den Play­ers is a lo­cal theater troupe known for its earthy, ac­ces­si­ble pro­duc­tions of Shake­speare. This week­end, how­ever, the group presents the world pre­miere of a new play by Deb­o­rah Den­ni­son called The Lion in the Lamb: The Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Spirit of Francis of As­sisi. The show

runs at 8 p.m. Fri­day and Satur­day, Sept. 17 and 18,

and at 2 p.m. Sun­day, Sept. 19, and con­tin­ues Fri­days to Sun­days through Oct. 3 at El Museo Cul­tural de Santa Fe (555 Camino de la Fa­milia). Tick­ets are $15, $10 for stu­dents and se­niors; on Sun­day, Sept. 19, pay what you can. For tick­ets, call 505-501-1709. Over Santa the Feans sum­mer, got a taste of the splen­did pro­duc­tion stan­dards that typ­ify the high­def­i­ni­tion broad­casts from the Na­tional The­atre in London, which are screened in town at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter. A new sea­son of six plays lies around the bend, but be­fore it be­gins, Na­tional The­atre Live of­fers an en­core pre­sen­ta­tion ( 7 p.m. Thurs­day, Sept. 23) of its first broad­cast:

Phè­dre, Jean Racine’s dark por­trait of a very trou­bled fam­ily, star­ring the ex­tra­or­di­nary Helen Mir­ren (seen here) in the ti­tle role. Tick­ets, $22 and $15 for stu­dents, are avail­able from the Len­sic, 211 W. San Fran­cisco St., 988-1234, and at www.tick­etssantafe.org. Mix­ing im­prov theater, dance, and gym­nas­tics, per­for­mance artist Gray de Young fear­lessly ex­plores her own bipo­lar con­di­tion, the death of fam­ily mem­bers, and Zen Bud­dhist med­i­ta­tion in her one-woman show Burst. The show plays at 8 p.m. Fri­day and Satur­day, Sept. 17 and 18, and con­tin­ues at the same time on Sept. 24 and 25 at the Ar­mory for the Arts Theater, 1050 Old Pe­cos Trail, 984-1370. Tick­ets are $15 on­line at www. brown­pa­pertick­ets.com and $20 at the door.
