  • Santa Fe Railyard

Make an evening of it in the Railyard Plaza. Check out El Ten Eleven and Future Scars on Santa Fe's Railyard plaza presented by Levitt Amp Santa Fe and the Santa Fe Railyard Community Corp. This night of fantastic live music is part of opening weekend of the amazing CURRENTS NEW MEDIA Festival right across the tracks which is open from noon to midnight. Music starts at 7pm and runs until 10pm at the water tower.

El Ten Eleven is a Los Angeles post-rock duo known for combining guitar/bass doubleneck or fretless bass, with heavy looping, or vamping, and the utility of an effects pedal, over acoustic or electric drumming. They have released six full-length albums, an ep and a remix album.

The band has earned some attention due to many of their songs being featured in the soundtracks of Gary Hustwit’s design documentaries HelveticaObjectified, and Urbanized.

Santa Fe’s wonderful Future Scars will be the opener.

North by North w/ Thieves & Gypsys and Crime Lab

  • Ghost

Hailing from the land of brutal winters and deep dish pizza, North by North has developed their own brand of infectious, spastic yet finely-honed rock and roll. They seamlessly toe the line between 3 minute garage pop anthems and your dad’s favorite “prog-rock deep cuts” cassette tape, with plenty of hooks to spare.

North By North are joined by local wave-rock favorites Thieves & Gypsyswho are celebrating the release of their new album Slipping Through. Slipping Though is a collection of incomplete songs that the band had tucked away in their back pocket for almost 4 years. When long time drummer Adam Cook decided it was time to follow his passion to move back to the east coast, the band decided it was time to write an album with songs to remember him by. Over the course of a 2 weeks writing and completing the songs and 3 days of recording, the band discovered a darker nature to their sound that is also beautiful and mature and shows what it can be like to live in memories and how time can just slip though the cracks. 

ABQ's Crime Lab opens for a night chock-full of catchy and dancable rock n' roll vibes.

Santa Fe Zine Fest

Santa Fe Zine Fest

  • CCA

On Saturday, May 20th, local writers, artists, and zine publishers will gather in CCA’s Living Room Gallery for the first annual Santa Fe Zine Fest. Matron Records is excited to be tabling at this fantastic event and serving up a whole host of screen-printed zines and Matron merchandise. While Santa Fe's die-hard zine fans can hardly wait for the city's first annual festival devoted to zines, comics, and other forms of alternative press and DIY media, others might be scratching their heads about what zines really are.

A “zine,” which is short for magazine or fanzine, is a small-circulation, self-published booklet, usually reproduced using a photocopier. They’re distinct from other self-published books in that zine publishers—or zinesters—trade or sell their zines very inexpensively. The intention isn’t to make a profit but to share writing, ideas, or art. The term “zine” can be traced back to the pulp science fiction arena of the 40s and 50s. Later, the punk scene of the 70s and the Riot Grrl movement of the early 90s popularized zines written about politics, music, and personal issues. But the beauty of zines is that they can be almost anything—poetry, photography, art, personal essays, music reviews, recipes… the possibilities are endless.

With the rise of the internet and blogs, zines experienced a lull in the late 90s and early 00s. But recently they’ve been embraced by a new generation, and zine festivals like Santa Fe’s have been popping up all over the country, allowing new and established zinesters to share their gems with the public.
 
Hosted in CCA’s cozy Living Room Gallery, Santa Fe Zine Fest will feature upwards of 24 zine publishers showcasing over 100 zines. In addition to local zines, publishers are traveling from as far away as San Antonio, Las Cruces, and Denver. “It’s a great mix,” says the fest's organizer Bucket Siler. “We’ll have personal zines, photo zines, poetry, DIY instructional zines, fiction, illustration… Some of the exhibitors have been at this for 20 years, others are publishing their first zine for the festival.”

Clarke and the Himselfs (Boise, ID)

Clarke and the Himselfs smack of alchemy, that seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, and combination. Performing live with a drumstick in her right hand, guitar strings under her thumb, vocals that cut right to the point with a Moe Tucker rhythm laid underneath, Clarke Aleksandr Howell takes basement rock fuzz, pop precision, molten neo-psych, weirdo gutter punk, and reorganizes them into something compact, bright and sharp, much like the sonic equivalent of highly organized carbon, or what is commonly known as a diamond.

After suffering from depression for years, driving cross country on off days on tour dressed as a woman, mourning the deaths of both friends and family, Clarke decided it was time for a change and recently came out with her longstanding battle with gender dysphoria. As she recently intimated, “My current mission in life, the biggest way I can stand for something, the best protest I have is to be true to what I believe in and be a transgender woman playing music for people in a band called Clarke and the Himselfs.
Magic. Transformation. Creation. Combination.
Indeed.

J&L Defer (Switzerland)

Anita Rufer and Gabriele De Mario, the core duo of Switzerland’s Disco Doom, are unimpressed by the ubiquitous obligation to always look for the new to only find the old again. Free from the zeitgeist, the duo work at their own pace as J&L Defer, an experimental project independent of all style guidelines andexpectations. J&L Defer have spent the past few years playing live at clubs, galleries, festivals, bars, cellars, studios, and garages, developing their sound through unique performances and a desire to create music that expands beyond genre borders and limitations. After years of studio experimentation andsongwriting together (in between Disco Doom albums), J&L Defer released their debut album “No Map” on September 2nd, 2016 via Exploding In Sound andDefer Records.

Grove of Baal (Santa Fe, NM)

The brainchild of Santa Fe’s Ben Tempchin, Grove of Baal combines etheric vocals and gorgeous song structures with and extensive palate of guitar effects and noises to create soundscapes that are at once soothing and alien, familiar and strange. often performing solo, Grove of Baal performs for this event as a full band for an immersive experience that is not to be missed!

Presented by Santa Fe’s Matron Records, local support is provided by Chicharra, the Albuquerque-based glam-metal outfit who signed to Matron Records earlier this year. Fronted by three bassists with two drummers, Chicharra is equal parts heavy, etheric and experimental.

"Wei Zhongle make a highly rhythmic, floating brand of indie pop. The quartet has had four shifts in lineup over five albums, and their sound has morphed along with those changes. But they have managed to keep a sound that is distinctly theirs through every iteration, from the sharp ruminations of their self-titled debut to the mesmerizing, appropriately named Nu Trance."
