Caul­dron bub­ble: Joe West’s Theater of Death

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS - — J.L.

Though Madrid, New Mex­ico, is now known as a vil­lage for icon­o­clas­tic creative types, it used to be a ghost town, the sort of place that might whis­tle and whis­per with spir­its in the dead of night. In an­tic­i­pa­tion of Hal­loween, the frights re­turn when Joe West Mu­sic pre­sents Theater of Death: The Cham­pagne Chron­i­cles at the En­gine House Theatre (2846 NM 14, 505-473-0743). West, a ubiq­ui­tous lo­cal mu­si­cian and entertainer, hosts the semi­an­nual evening of mu­sic and per­for­mance. This year’s theme is “cham­pagne,” so ex­pect a frothy sort of ter­ror. Other lo­cal mu­si­cians fea­tured in Theater of Death are Westin McDow­ell, Johnny Broom­dust, and Busy McCar­roll. Per­for­mances are at 8 p.m. Fri­day, Oct. 21, Satur­day, Oct. 22, and Thurs­day, Oct. 27 (as well as Oct. 28 and 31) and at 3 p.m. Satur­day, Oct. 22, Sun­day, Oct. 23 (and again on Oct. 29 and 30). Tick­ets are $20 ($15 se­niors/ stu­dents), avail­able at www. tick­etssantafe.org.
