Culture Shock

F’Yeah Fractals

For the mathematically uninclined, calculus looks less like math and more like an indecipherable secret language. Instead of explaining anything, it simply adds more mystery and, often, a little bit of fear. Fortunately, math fans and foes can get together under the domed ceiling of the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science (1801 Mountain NW) to see math in action in a much more meaningful manner. “First Friday Fractals” takes mathematically complex geometric shapes, projects them, zooms in close to show their detail and complexity, and makes math beautiful. Shows are Friday, July 2, at 6, 7 and 8 p.m. The cost is $5 for kids 3 to 12, $7 for seniors and $10 for everybody else. Get tickets at or at the museum.

Musical Buffet

I love it when people do what they love, not for fame or fortune, but just because it makes them happy. When what they love can be shared, it's even better.

This weekend Santa Fe musician rosS Hamlin (yes, he likes to capitalize his name funny, he's a quirky dude) launches a brand new music venue in the Fe with a festival of sound.

A little history: About a year ago Santa Fe's only independent record store had to shutter part of its business due to the death of the owner. Fortunately, the musical instrument part of the biz stayed around. That left a void for vinyl junkies but allowed Hamlin to take over part of the now empty building for his own purposes--to rock.

Now, just a few months after Hamlin got the wacky idea in his head, Little Wing is leaping from the nest. If you find yourself up north, please stop in. I plan to bounce in and out of of the fest all weekend and will kick myself if I miss J.A. Deane (an electronic music wizard), my pal Cole Wilson (a guy with a banjo strung with Christmas lights) and I Heart Metal (the not-so-secret musical alter ego of the Santa Fe Reporter's music critic Alex DeVore). There's a full set list here and the fun begins tonight at 5 p.m. and 2 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.

MarchFourth marching band takes it to the streets.


Pomp and Circumstance

MarchFourth is not your nerdy high school marching band

If you see a horde of musicians dressed like pirates who raided a band uniform store flood out of a giant touring coach, followed by fire spinners on stilts and sequined dancing girls, you’re probably about to witness the concert extravaganza that is the MarchFourth Marching Band. On Monday, June 7, the band will stage a huge performance at the El Rey Theater. Adults and children alike have the chance to be wowed by the music and spectacle this band is known for.
