Chi­cano Bat­man comes from LA bear­ing pan-Latin grooves; the New Mex­ico Bach So­ci­ety de­votes a con­cert to the mas­ter; Na­tional Theatre Live in HD broad­casts Twelfth Night; and Taj Ex­press: The Bol­ly­wood Mu­si­cal plays at the Len­sic

Los An­ge­les’ Chi­cano Bat­man is a groovy pan-Latin quar­tet whose mu­sic is rem­i­nis­cent of strolling the hot city streets in sum­mer­time and hear­ing the strains of some­thing awe­some com­ing from a res­tau­rant pa­tio or played live by a side­walk band. Chi­cano Bat­man trans­ports and si­mul­ta­ne­ously keeps you in the mo­ment — and some­times they even get po­lit­i­cal, as in a few tracks on their new al­bum, Free­dom Is Free (ATO Records), which is more soul­ful and funky than their pre­vi­ous two. It is easy to find the ap­peal of danc­ing to them at a sweaty, crowded show. New Mex­i­cans have their chance on Tues­day, April 11, when the band plays at the Meow Wolf Per­for­mance Space (1352 Ru­fina Cir­cle, 505-395-6369), with open­ing acts SadGirl and The Shacks. The fun be­gins at 8 p.m. (doors open at 7 p.m.), and tick­ets to the 21-an­dover show are $14 in ad­vance, avail­able at www.me­ow­wolf.com, and $19 at the door. — Jennifer Levin
