Among the many enticing concerts vying for your attention this weekend, here are two to consider. Tomorrow, the Santa Fe Guitar Quartet will bring its collective talents to Baltimore in a program that ranges from J. S. Bach and Bela Bartok to Isaac Albeniz and Astor Piazzolla. Named for the city in Argentina, the ensemble began making a name for itself in 1989 by combining classical repertoire with both classical and folk music of Latin America. There has been a particular emphasis on the tango-based works by the late Piazzolla, whose vibrant scores have helped bring the dance form back to the fore.

These days, it is fairly routine for pop groups to declare their sound unique and uncategorizable. It might look good in print, but it generally does little to disguise the fact that this "unique" music sounds like virtually everything else on the radio today.Once in a while, though, a band comes along offering music so utterly one-of-a-kind as to almost defy description. A band, in short, like the Cocteau Twins.Emerging in the early '80s, this British trio -- Scots Robin Guthrie and Elizabeth Fraser, plus Englishman Simon Raymonde -- managed to confound even the heard-it-all English music press, who sought in vain for an appropriate pigeonhole.

Laura Marsico and girlfriends Cheryl Bernard-Smith and Laura Durington didn't give a second thought to leaving their children with their husbands for a weekend of couture, celebrities and the overall fabulousness that is New York Fashion Week. The three attended the Rebecca Taylor fashion show Sunday in Lincoln Center. It was the first time the trio had taken an overnight excursion together sans children in the past six years. It was also an opportunity for the working mothers to let their collective hair down while revisiting their big-city roots.

Few bands are more aptly named than Celebration. The Baltimore-based trio of singer Katrina Ford, drummer David Bergander and keyboardist Sean Antanaitis conjure psychedelic, tribal music that is both dark and uplifting. In October, Celebration released its sophomore album, The Modern Tribe, to critical acclaim. Saturday's show at 2640 caps an international tour in support of the album. When performing, lead singer Ford feeds off the audience's energy and channels it into the songs. So many indie rock bands, when they play live, they just rigidly stand on stage and play the songs straight off their album.
