  • East of Venus will perform August 4.

August 4. East of Venus’s lineup reads like a Hoboken post-punk all-star team: singer and guitarist Glenn Mercer and drummer Stan Demeski of the Feelies, bassist (and Accord resident) Rob Norris of the Bongos, and guitarist Michael Carlucci of Winter Hours. The foursome shares Carlucci with fellow Jersey outfit the Thousand Pities, which also has ex-members of ’80s folk-rockers the Vestrymen. In a rare Upstate double-header, the two bands make a visit to Market Market. (Tributon night covers Talking Heads and David Byrne August 11; the Bongos’ Richard Barone beats it out August 24.) 8pm. $10. Rosendale. (845) 658-3164; Marketmarketcafe.com.

  • 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.
