I Get lit up with the com­pletely lively mu­sic of the Balkans as the bands Evet and Korvin Orkestar per­form at 7:30 p.m. Satur­day, Dec. 8, at Par­adiso (903 Early St.). “Mu­sic and dances from Al­ba­nia, Bul­garia, Greece, Mace­do­nia, Turkey, and the Roma na­tion will be per­formed, with an em­pha­sis on some tasty, con­nec­tive dances like and even a and a or two,” Evet leader Polly Tapia Fer­ber said. Char Roth­schild, a mem­ber of Korvin Orkestar, added, “More and more peo­ple are drawn to the multi­gen­er­a­tional com­mu­nity ex­pe­ri­ence that is Balkan danc­ing. It re­ally plugs you in. The dance is made to hold the steps of the youth­ful and the steps of the el­ders all at once. We hope that this evening will be el­e­vat­ing all the way around.” Tick­ets are $15 at the door, and kids 12 and un­der get in free. Call 505-930-1194 for more in­for­ma­tion. — Paul Wei­de­man A ley line is a spir­i­tu­ally sig­nif­i­cant align­ment of land­marks that con­nects peo­ple and places across time and space. Such lines unite the liv­ing and the dead and can rep­re­sent a kind of tran­scen­dence or vi­tal merg­ing. The four women from Austin who call them­selves Ley Line sing a folky mix­ture of cross­cul­tural mul­ti­lin­gual mu­sic that fuses the light feel of buskers on a street cor­ner with the singer-song­writer chops of Gil­lian Welch or Neko Case. Ley Line plays at 7:30 p.m. Tues­day, Dec. 11, at the Kitchen Sink Record­ing Stu­dio (528 José St.). Tick­ets are $20 at brown­pa­pertick­ets.com, and doors open at 7 p.m. — Jen­nifer Levin
