  • 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: "The Poughkeepsie Jazz Project"

    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.

  • CD Review: Zs' "XE"

    Higgins and current fellow Zs Sam Hillmer (sax and pedals) and Greg Fox (percussion and electronics) are nothing short of poets of noise. Even in the most assaultive moments on Zs' new record, XE, a sense of delicacy, separation, and emotive purpose prevails.
