Pasatiempo - - CONTENT - — Paul Wei­de­man

Leon Rus­sell plays the Len­sic; Growl­ing Old Men take Cen­ter Stage; Wayne “The Train” Han­cock rocks Sky­light; and The Last Five Years shows at the Santa Fe Play­house

Leon Rus­sell’s cred­its go back to early ’60s stints with Jan & Dean, the Su­per Stocks, the Everly Broth­ers, the Beach Boys, the Monkees, and the Rolling Stones — and that was all be­fore he re­leased his own first al­bum. Join­ing him on Leon Rus­sell (1970) were Steve Win­wood, Mick Jag­ger, Bill Wy­man, Ge­orge Har­ri­son, Ringo Starr, and Joe Cocker. It seemed that Rus­sell had al­ready cap­tured the uni­verse, and he went on to record more than 30 albums — even with long lapses in mu­sic­mak­ing dur­ing much of the 1980s and 1990s — and to present hun­dreds of dynamite con­certs. He brings his band to the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.), for a gig at 7 p.m. on Satur­day, June 4. Tick­ets are $49-$59, avail­able by call­ing 505-988-1234 or vis­it­ing www.tick­etssantafe.com.
