Jazz key­boards ma­gi­cian Chick Corea (in fore­ground) is the sub­ject of the next pro­gram in the se­ries by the Trib­ute Trio (be­hind Corea). Corea gained renown as a mem­ber of Miles Davis’ elec­tric band in the late 1960s and as leader of his own fu­sion band Re­turn to For­ever in the 1970s. The Trib­ute Trio — pi­anist John Ran­gel, drum­mer Cal Haines, and bassist Michael Glynn — plays at 7 p.m. Thurs­day, Nov. 11, at

El Mesón, 213 Washington Ave. Call 989-1088 for ad­vance tick­ets ($15) and 983-6756 for din­ner reser­va­tions. If you have even the slight­est vin­tage to ya, the Fab Four rings a bell as an af­fec­tion­ate name for The Bea­tles. The mem­bers of a new Bea­tles trib­ute band billing them­selves as The Fab Faux per­form the band’s un­par­al­leled

mu­sic at Mike’s Mu­sic Ex­change in La Tienda at El­do­rado (7 Caliente Road, 466-2782) at 7 p.m. Fri­day, Nov. 5. The band mem­bers are Paul Mar­cus, drums; Bob Cur­tis, bass; and Eve­lyne Tay­lor and Tim Tay­lor, gui­tar. Tick­ets are $15 at the door. Singer-song­writer Nick Jaina is one more rea­son to raise a toast to the blos­som­ing in­die-folk scene in Port­land, Ore­gon’. He may be one-third of pop-rock band Bi­nary Dolls. He may have been a part-time drum­mer for Van­cou­ver, B.C., roots out­fit The Be Good Tanyas. And he may have writ­ten mu­sic for some mem­bers of the New York City Bal­let. But whether he’s with a backup band or solo with one of the many in­stru­ments he plays, Jaina is a folk-pop wizard with a gift for dark sto­ry­telling and a weath­ered jazz crooner’s voice. Catch Jaina and his band and open­ers The Ghost Light at 9 p.m.

Sun­day, Nov. 7, at Corazón (401 S. Guadalupe St.; 983-4559). It’s $5 at www.cora­zon­santafe.com and at the door. You didn’t sur­vive the ’70s un­less you have a tat­tered copy of Ram Dass’ Be Here Now. The 1971 guide to yoga, spir­i­tu­al­ity and med­i­ta­tion was orig­i­nally pub­lished by Taos’ Lama Foun­da­tion, one of the most long-last­ing North­ern New Mex­ico com­munes to emerge from the coun­ter­cul­ture era. At 2 p.m. Sun­day,

Nov. 7, St. John’s Col­lege (1160 Camino de Cruz Blanca) hosts a staged dra­matic read­ing of the com­mune’s his­tory called

Lama Ge­n­e­sis/Lama In­car­na­tions. Pre­sented by Metta The­atre, the show takes place at the Great Hall. Ad­mis­sion is $6. For in­for­ma­tion, call 575-758-1104.
