Panter’s Playhouse

The do-it-yourself mind-set that stoked the early punk and hardcore subcultures created more than just a colossal volume of great (and not-so-great) music. It also produced buttons, ‘zines, comics, album covers, and fashion trends that refuse to die. Perhaps the most foreign part of those creations — to the iPod generation, at least — are the cut-and-paste publishing techniques that actually involved scissors and glue.

Nicole Panter — a writer; former manager of punk legends The Germs; screenwriter and actress on the ’80s TV program The Pee-wee Herman Show; and current assistant professor of Moving Image Arts at the College of Santa Fe — has been a longtime champion of punk’s promotional philosophy and style. From 1995 to 2004, Panter taught a class in DIY at the California Institute of the Arts, where her students produced thousands of books, ‘zines, and other punk-o- bilia. And she saved a lot of them. On Friday, Oct. 10, at MOV-iN Gallery (on the College of Santa Fe campus, 1600 St. Michael’s Drive, 4736400), Panter shares her collection in a hands-on exhibit titled FTW/DIY 1995-2004 RIP. An opening reception from 4:45 to 7:30 p.m. includes short performances by former Angry Samoans vocalist/guitarist Gregg Turner and multi-instrumentalist Paul Collins of the band Beirut. The exhibit runs through Nov. 7.

Tous les oboes du monde

On Monday, Oct. 13, saxophonist Branford Marsalis, who is mostly known for his jazz articulations, brings to Santa Fe an ambitious

project with 29 members of the Filharmonia Brasileira. It’s a celebration of music by the Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos on the 50th anniversary of his death. Marsalis and the Bran orchestra (which is conducted by Gil Jardim and includes six oboists!) play a Villa-Lobos Fantasia and two of his Bachianas Brasileiras pieces as well as a pair of works by Darius Milhaud: La Creation du monde and Scaramouche.

Marsalis Brasilianos, presented by the Santa Fe

Concert Association, takes

the stage at 7:30 p.m. at the Lensic Performing Arts Center, 211 W. San Francisco Street. Tickets range from $30 to $85; call the Lensic box office at 988-1234.
