Pasatiempo - - Onstage This Week -

You can catch more flies with honey than with vine­gar, but un­com­pro­mis­ing coun­try icon Char­lie Daniels just don’t give a damn. Best known for his fid­dle-fren­zied, 1979 Bill­board-chart-top­ping hit “The Devil Went Down to Ge­or­gia,” po­lit­i­cally minded Daniels — who re­cently posted glowing sup­port on his web­site of New York con­gress­man Peter King’s “wis­dom and courage in hold­ing the con­gres­sional hear­ings on the rad­i­cal­iza­tion of Mus­lims in Amer­ica” — has a sto­ried mu­sic ca­reer that spans 60 years, 54 stu­dio al­bums, and a life­time of call­ing it as he sees it. The Char­lie Daniels Band per­forms at 8 p.m. Satur­day, March 26, at Buf­falo Thun­der Re­sort & Casino (30 Buf­falo Thun­der Trail). Tick­ets, $29 to $59, are avail­able at www.tick­ets.com, the Casino Cage box of­fice, or by call­ing 800-905-3315.

Brian Win­gard, a sax­o­phon­ist who re­lates to the bright lights of be­bop and post­bop — in­clud­ing Char­lie Parker, John Coltrane, Joe Hen­der­son and Wayne Shorter — is fea­tured in a quar­tet date at the Mu­seum Hill Café (710 Camino Lejo, 984-8900) at 11:30 a.m. on Sun­day, March 27. He plays orig­i­nals and stan­dards with John Trenta­costa, drums; Brian Bennett, key­boards; and Colin Deu­ble, bass. The jazz brunch (with an en­trée choice of veg­etable frit­tata, grilled salmon, or roast beef) is spon­sored by the Friends of Santa Fe Jazz. Tick­ets are $40, avail­able from Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic (988-1234, www.tick­etssantafe.org).

Lo­cal dance­mak­ers get a chance to show off their work at the Rai­l­yard Per­for­mance Cen­ter (1611-A Paseo de Per­alta) at 7:30 p.m. on Fri­day and Satur­day, March 25 and 26. The an­nual Chore­og­ra­phers’ Show­case, pre­sented by the New Mex­ico Dance Coali­tion, in­cludes mod­ern-dance pieces by Ariel Gottschall, Erica Gion­friddo, and Echo Gustafson from Mov­ing Peo­ple Dance, as well as dancers pre­sent­ing tap, fla­menco, ac­ro­bat­ics, mambo, African, Egyp­tian folk­loric, and jazz pieces. Jas­mine Quin­sier, the pro­ducer of the event, said the per­for­mances will help raise money for a schol­ar­ship pro­gram founded by the coali­tion to en­able stu­dents to at­tend dance classes through­out the city. Tick­ets, $10, $5 for those un­der 12, are avail­able at the door. Visit www.nm­dance­coali­tion.org.

Guy Clark, Del­bert McClinton, Ray Wylie Hub­bard, Buck Owens, Merle Hag­gard, Bill Hearne … They can all be spo­ken of with equal rev­er­ence, like a laun­dry list of great coun­try singers that sounds like cow­boy po­etry if you’re say­ing it right. The fi­nal name be­longs to a mu­si­cian that New Mex­ico has con­sid­ered one of its own for decades. Strum­min’ gui­tar by age 9, hit­tin’ juke joints by the time he reached his teens, Hearne is the mod­ern dis­til­la­tion of ev­ery­thing that was pure about coun­try and honky-tonk mu­sic be­fore the Cross­over Kid rode into town. Catch Bill Hearne’s Road­house Re­vue at 7 p.m. Sun­day, March 27, at The Lodge at Santa Fe (750 N. St. Fran­cis Drive, 992-5800); it’s $10 at the door.
