AC­CLAIMED SHOW ABOUT CON­SENT COM­ING TO KTAOS

Shane Di­a­mond left Taos for Maine in 2006 to play ice hockey at Bow­doin Col­lege. It was a move that would change his life for­ever.

He still plays hockey some­times, but has spent much more time trav­el­ing the coun­try (and the world) talk­ing with stu­dents about con­sent and healthy re­la­tion­ships. While he’s cov­ered thou­sands of miles and mul­ti­ple con­ti­nents, Taos has al­ways re­mained close to his heart,” a press re­lease states. While at Bow­doin Col­lege, Di­a­mond was in­volved with a num­ber of groups and or­ga­ni­za­tions to ad­dress the is­sues of sex­ual as­sault and al­co­hol on cam­pus, in­clud­ing a live per­for­mance called “Speak About

It” that was specif­i­cally for in­com­ing col­lege fresh­men. “He had no idea how pow­er­ful and im­por­tant the show

would be for other stu­dents, or for him. Af­ter grad­u­at­ing he re­al­ized that the show should be ev­ery­where on ev­ery col­lege and high school cam­pus the coun­try,” the re­lease con­tin­ues. Eight years later, Di­a­mond and “Speak About It” are well on their way to mak­ing that dream a re­al­ity. Now based in Port­land, Maine, Di­a­mond is the ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor and founder of Speak About It, Inc., an in­de­pen­dent non-profit that pro­vides sex­ual as­sault

pre­ven­tion and con­sent ed­u­ca­tion for high school and col­lege stu­dents. Di­a­mond will present “Speak About It” Mon­day (April 2), 6 p.m., at the KTAOS So­lar Cen­ter, 9 State Road 150, north of El Prado. Ad­mis­sion is free, do­na­tions ap­pre­ci­ated. The show is of­fered at no charge thanks to sup­port from KTAO-FM 101.9, Luna 96.7, and the Taos Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion. Call (575) 758-5826.

JEREMIAH AND NIGHTIN­GALE RODEO AT THE TAP ROOM

Jeremiah Sam­mar­tano and the Red Eyes, with Nightin­gale Rodeo, will be play­ing Mon­day (April 2), 7 p.m., at the Taos Mesa Brew­ing Mother­ship, 20 ABC Mesa Road, off U.S. 64 west. There is no cover charge.

Jeremiah Sam­mar­tano and the Red Eyes are bring­ing their twangy, bluesy sounds back to Taos, along with the duo Nightin­gale Rodeo, in sup­port of a new al­bum, “Th­ese Mo­tel Days.” The Mother­ship is the first stop on a string of shows the bands are plan­ning through­out the South­west.

The Los An­ge­les-based, Em­mynom­i­nated Na­tive Amer­i­can singer­song­writer who fronts the bluesy Amer­i­cana and some­times one-man band, Jeremiah and the Red Eyes, has cov­ered many miles over the past sev­eral years. He has taken var­i­ous roads, spread­ing mu­sic in­flu­enced by the raw blues of Charley Pat­ton, the lyri­cal and of­ten rau­cous sounds of The Pogues, the twang of Wil­lie Nel­son, and some vin­tage rock and roll. Sam­mar­tano re­ceived an Emmy nom­i­na­tion for writ­ing mu­sic for the doc­u­men­tary, “Prison Through To­mor­row’s Eyes.”
