Named after the Spanish festival in Pamplona famous for the running of the bulls, San Fermin is the pop music outlet for Brooklyn-based composer and songwriter Ellis Ludwig-Leone. Along with vocal contributions from Allen Tate, Jess Wolfe, and Holly Laessig of Lucius, Leone brings baroque stylings to the indie arena in an operatic composition that unites familiar themes–youth, nostalgia, anxiety, and unrequited love–in a collage of poetic intensity on his eponymously titled first release.

Tuesday 12/3. $8, 8:30pm. The Southern Café and Music Hall, 103 S. First St. 977-5590.
