Music to Your Ears

Cole Bee Wilson
Cole Bee Wilson


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.

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

Magnet and steel pop dectet—that’s ten musicians—Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros enchants and enthralls fans ages 13 and over at Sunshine Theater (120 Central SW) on Tuesday, May 7, at 8 p.m. There’s no indication that any locals are on this bill, but fans of the troupe of ten with $25 to spare won’t be deterred by that fact. The bewitching brew of Sharpe and company is enough to sate any No Depression-meets-Tiger Beat itch.

Built to Spill
Built to Spill

Teeming Martsch

Doug Martsch and his cast of sonic characters have purveyed their hook-laden, sometimes twangy brand of indie rock for over two decades. Built to Spill’s discography is carefully curated rather than needlessly prolific, and the Idahoan group’s solid fan base attests to the quality of their work. Currently touring with Boise, Idaho-based “death-pop” quartet Junior Rocket Scientist, Built to Spill delivers the rock at Launchpad (618 Central SW) on Thursday, May 9. This 21-and-over concert begins at 9:30 p.m., and tickets are $20.
