David Bashwiner—part of the brain trust behind intensely quirky and terrifically toothsome “Bohemian pop folk disco” ensemble Cactus Tractor—is also a professor of theory and composition in the music department at UNM. Dude is responsible for publications like “Lifting the Foot: The Neural Underpinnings of the ‘Pathological’ Response to Music.” He’s also responsible for one of the most elusively enjoyable, genre-bending, ecstasy-seeking sound units here in the Duke City. With fellow tractor drivers Christy Cook, Stephanie Graner, Samuel Sullivan, Brandon Baca, Jordan Fredrick, Michael Olivola and Fernando Garavito, Bashwiner makes music that is sly, sunshiny, complex and urges a type of Dionysian abandon that’s both palatable and pulsating. You can check all that out for yourself, dear reader, when Cactus Tractor erupts from the desert and plows the ground at Hotel Andaluz (125 Second Street NW) on Friday, March 17, beginning at 7pm. It’s a free performance, meant for those 21 years old or older who have a demonstrated interest in the progressive art-folk made by hippie punk-rockers with degrees.
