The Wolf Tones Electric Music Festival at UNM's Keller Hall happens on Saturday, Nov. 14. Organized by College of Fine Arts recordist and long-time sound guru Manny Rettinger, the festival is meant to be a broad overview, historically accurate yet genre and generation defying, of a group of artists who have found their homes among wires, sine-waves, noise and ephemeral snatches of melody.

The list of performers is a who's who of local and nationally prominent experimental musicians including Jose Luis Hurtado & the Chupper String Quartet, Rettinger's Martian Funk, composer/pianist/software engineer Paul Marquardt, Jim Prewitt and Micah Hood, Mesa Ritual (Raven Chacon and William Fowler Collins), BIGAWATT (Marisa De Marco), TAHNZZ (Tahnee Udero), OG electro-wiz Dwight Loop and supergroup TAPERED, comprising members of Neutral Milk Hotel (Jeremy Barnes), Deerhoof (John Dieterich), A Hawk and a Hacksaw (Heather Trost), Rosie Hutchinson and Drake Hardin from Teetotum. Damn. That's like the list of the year. Be there or be square; the concert starts at 7:30pm and will be preceded by sound installations around the venue from 5:30-7:30pm.
