ON­STAGE THIS WEEK

Pasatiempo - - Onstage This Week -

The last few years have seen a spate of bed­room pro­duc­ers take to the in­ter­net, dis­tort­ing R&B vo­cal tracks while pil­fer­ing beats from krunk rap, ’ 80s synth pop, and deep house. One of the best artists to emerge out of this mi­cro-genre is Pic­ture­plane, an edgy Den­ver pro­ducer who is equally at home with the dark strains of goth and grime and the glit­ter and glam of disco. He plays at 9 p.m. Mon­day, March 21, at Rouge Cat (101 W. Marcy St.) as part of the SxSF Transit Mu­sic Fes­ti­val. Tick­ets, $10, are avail­able from www.cora­zon­santafe.com and at the door.

Two clas­sics of the wind cham­ber reper­toire fig­ure on the

Imani Winds’ recital at 8 p.m. on Fri­day, March 18,

at the Duane Smith Au­di­to­rium at Los Alamos High School (1300 Di­a­mond Drive): Carl Nielsen’s Quin­tet for Winds and El­liott Carter’s Eight Etudes and a Fan­tasy for Wood­wind Quar­tet. Also on the pro­gram are a se­lec­tion of the pop-jazz-clas­sic cross­over pieces the quin­tet par­tic­u­larly cham­pi­ons — by Paquito D’Rivera and As­tor Pi­az­zolla, among oth­ers. Ad­mis­sion is $35 at the door; ad­vance tick­ets ($30) can be bought from Ni­cholas Pot­ter Book­seller (211 E. Palace Ave., 983-5434) and from var­i­ous lo­ca­tions de­tailed at www.los­alam­oscon­cert.org. The windy month of March is rich in con­certs of wind mu­sic, in­clud­ing

Con­cor­dia Santa Fe’s pro­gram Case Stud­ies in Con­tem­po­rary Mu­sic, its ti­tle re­flect­ing that of a cur­rent show at the New Mex­ico Mu­seum of Art. Cu­ri­ously, this wind-en­sem­ble con­cert in­cludes no con­tem­po­rary mu­sic, but it’s good stuff all the same, writ­ten be­tween 1943 and 1968 by Prokofiev, Gor­don Ja­cob, Vin­cent Per­sichetti, and Karel Husa. The free con­cert (do­na­tions wel­come), led by guest con­duc­tor Mark Scat­ter­day of the East­man Wind En­sem­ble, takes place at 2 p.m. on Sun­day, March 20, at the mu­seum’s St. Fran­cis Au­di­to­rium, 107 W. Palace Ave. Call 795-9979 for in­for­ma­tion. Irv­ing Ber­lin has of­ten been de­scribed as the most suc­cess­ful song­writer of the 20th cen­tury. He is the fo­cus of A Cel­e­bra­tion of the En­dur­ing Amer­i­can Pop­u­lar Song. The event, fea­tur­ing singers David Jen­ness and Patty Stephens ac­com­pa­nied by pi­anist Bert Dal­ton and bassist Justin Brans­ford, takes place from 4 to 6 p.m. Sun­day,

March 20, at Vanessie, 434 San Fran­cisco St. All pro­ceeds ben­e­fit the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter. Tick­ets are $25, avail­able from Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic (988-1234, www.tick­etssantafe.org) and at the door.
