Fall­ing into places: We Are the West

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

We Are the West has earned a rep­u­ta­tion in its home base of Los An­ge­les for per­form­ing gen­tle ex­per­i­men­tal folk mu­sic in un­likely venues, in­clud­ing aban­doned con­vents, barns, and ship­ping con­tain­ers. The group even holds a monthly con­cert se­ries in an un­der­ground park­ing garage, all in an ef­fort to trans­form ev­ery­day spa­ces into “mag­i­cal mu­si­cal worlds,” said band mem­ber Brett Hool. Hool’s par­ents live in Santa Fe, and for years he has had his eye on the Scot­tish Rite Cen­ter (463 Paseo de Peralta), which houses a beau­ti­ful theater with hand­painted back­drops. Hool ful­fills a dream by play­ing with We Are the West — now on tour in sup­port of its al­bum Re­gards — at the cen­ter of a triple bill with Todd and the Fox and Cloa­cas on Fri­day, July 17. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the mu­sic be­gins at 8:30 p.m. Ad­mis­sion is by a sug­gested do­na­tion of $10 to $20 at the door. — Jen­nifer Levin
