Cole Bee Wilson, former frontman of The Apple Miner Colony, is bound to be up to something interesting at any given moment. Right now, it’s a sort of magical realism; Wilson—under the moniker H. Thunderbolt—investigates and re-envisions the life of Punic Carthaginian military commander Hannibal. Passion, vengeance, pride, bloodlust and other subjects are conjured and probed. Avant-garde Americana priestess Laura Goldhamer joins Wilson in an evening celebrating automated instrumentation and recontextualizing the audience as technological chorus—and Hannibal, natch—at 8 p.m. on Friday, May 3, at the Center for Contemporary Arts (1050 Old Pecos Trail, Santa Fe). General admission tickets are $15, and CCA members and students save a fiver.
