Songs of the siren: Rosie Flores

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS - — Paul Wei­de­man

Santa Fe Per­for­mance Ex­change and South­west Roots Mu­sic present Rosie Flores in con­cert on Satur­day, Jan. 7, at the Kitchen Sink Record­ing Stu­dio (528 José St.). A ballsy rock­a­billy and honky-tonk singer and a great gui­tarist, Flores first played in a band as a teenager in San Diego and worked in the punk bands Rosie and the Scream­ers and the Screamin’ Sirens in the late 1970s and early ’80s. She re­leased her solo de­but, Rosie Flores, in 1987. Her Cal­i­for­nia soul shows through on “Surf De­mon #5” on her 11th al­bum, Work­ing Girl’s Gui­tar, which also has a beau­ti­ful ver­sion of “While My Gui­tar Gen­tly Weeps.” Over the years, she has worked with Wanda Jack­son, Butch Han­cock, Joe Ely, and Cindy Cash­dol­lar. Tick­ets for the Satur­day gig are $20; call 800-838-3006 or visit www.brown­pa­pertick­ets.com. The mu­sic starts at 7 p.m.
