Slith­er­ing sax: Tim Berne

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Alto sax­o­phon­ist Tim Berne’s rep­u­ta­tion as a chal­leng­ing com­poser and determined im­pro­viser dates back to New York City’s loft scene of the 1980s. His lat­est band, Snakeoil, is one of his most ap­proach­able in a twisted but har­mon­i­cally pleas­ing way. The group, with clar­inetist Os­car Nor­iega, plays from its new re­lease, You’ve Been

Watch­ing Me, at 7:30 p.m. on Wed­nes­day, May 6, at the Gig Per­for­mance Space (1808 Sec­ond St.; www.gigsantafe.com). Tick­ets are $20 at the door. Snakeoil also ap­pears at Al­bu­querque’s Out­post Per­for­mance Space (210 Yale Blvd. S.E., 505-268-0044) at 7:30 p.m. on Thurs­day, May 7. Tick­ets, $15 and $20, are avail­able at www.holdmy-wticket.com. — Bill Kohlhaase
