Nightlife Highlights

February 22. Palates were aflutter last year when New York's inimitable Two Boots pizzeria opened an eatery across from Bard College. And to sweeten the deal the new bistro has been booking some choice music. Here, the space hosts Hudson acoustic guitar innovator Alexander Turnquist, who recently unveiled Like Sunburned Snowflakes, a 12-inch colored vinyl EP on the Virginia-based VHF Records label. Turnquist's divinely ethereal live performances never fail to put the room in a trance. With Avondale Airforce. (DJs Mr Chips and Mikey Palms spin Mardi Gras getdown February 9; Nightmares for a Week and the Grape and the Grain rock February 15.) 9pm. $5. Red Hook.

Speaking of...

  • CD Review: Christine Spero's "Spero Plays Nyro"

    Why and how dare she devote an entire album to songs by Laura Nyro when we can just listen to the originals on Spotify? I'll tell you why. Because Christine Spero fully inhabits these songs, uncovers hidden nuances, and with her stunning ensemble—including drummer Peter O'Brien, bassist Scott Petito, saxophonist Elliot Spero, and Christine's own magic hands on the ivories.
