For auto-free Burque denizens like myself, a trip to the City Different can seem like a massive undertaking. But with the Rail Runner and ride-share opportunities, even the carless can realistically travel to Santa Fe for a festival. This weekend, the Fe—specifically Santa Fe University of Art and Design—is the place to check out freewheelin’ improv all weekend long. Friday night’s performance features contrabassist Brendan Carn and multi-instrumentalist Dino J.A. Deane. On Saturday, iNK oN pAPER and Mexico City-based experimental trombonist Brian Allen conjure a set. Sunday winds down with a set by Wind Up Birds and Thollem’s Confluence. All shows happen at SFUAD campus’ Benildus Hall at 8pm. SFUAD students get in free, and tickets are 10 bucks for everyone else. A moderated Q&A follows each concert.
