Danc­ing in the dark: Night Wave

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Santa Fe’s sup­pos­edly sleepy nightlife scene gets an energy boost this week­end with Night Wave, pre­sented by lo­cal en­ter­tain­ment busi­nesses and co­or­di­nated by the Meow Wolf art col­lec­tive. Night Wave’s mis­sion is to high­light all there al­ready is to do af­ter dark in the City Dif­fer­ent, as well as the idea that with a lit­tle col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween bars and con­cert venues, Santa Fe could turn into one of those towns where peo­ple roam bar to bar from 9 p.m. un­til last call. Night Wave be­gan July 30, and con­tin­ues through Satur­day, Aug. 1, with events around down­town and the Rai­l­yard, in­clud­ing DJ Sol’s Alchemy Party and the Bella Gi­gante Drag Show at Sky­light (139 W. San Fran­cisco St.); Chango at Cow­girl BBQ (319 Guadalupe); The Jakes at Evan­ge­los (200 W. San Fran­cisco St.), and Haterkids with CP-Squared + Bub­blz at the Mata­dor (116 W. San Fran­cisco St.). On Satur­day, you can see Un­known Mor­tal Or­ches­tra, Cym­bals Eats Gui­tars, and Vinyl Wil­liams at the Santa Fe Re­porter Best of Block Party in the Farm­ers Mar­ket Pav­il­ion (1607 Paseo de Peralta) start­ing at 8 p.m. Norteño co­me­dian Car­los Me­d­ina brings his mu­sic and bilin­gual stand-up to Sky­light, also at 8 p.m. For about a year, Me­d­ina has been per­form­ing as Graviel de la Plaga, an amal­gam of odd­ball char­ac­ters and ac­cents from north of Santa Fe, and his Youtube videos are go­ing vi­ral.
