Cheap Time 

Nightlife Highlights

June 18. The newly reopened Half Moon, located almost straight across from the Amtrak station on Front Street in Hudson, is poised to become the hottest new hang in the Hudson Valley. Taken over by sage Downstaters, the cozy 1940s-style neighborhood bar has a vibe and clientele that pulses with just the right level of energetic coolness. Live music has begun to happen there, and things are really getting up to speed with this gig by Tennessee garage punk trio Cheap Time. Now flogging its third album for the seminal In the Red label, the young band rocks like a spiky Heartbreakers/Buzzcocks/Undertones cocktail. And hey: Yours truly and Jeff the Chef (Empire State Soul Club) will be there, spinning punk, garage, rock 'n' roll, and old-school soul and R&B. 8:30pm. $5. Hudson. (518) 828-1562;

    If you want to catch some of the best jazz in the Hudson Valley, head over to the Derby bar and restaurant on Main Street in Poughkeepsie. Since 2013, the duo of pianist John Scanlon and bassist Ben Basile has held court there every Tuesday, jamming with an array of local talent each week and establishing Po-Town as a rising force in local bop.
