May 10. The Beacon music scene certainly has a champion in Stephen Clair. Besides fronting his own trio and teaching and running the music school Beacon Music Factory, the powerhouse maven arranges concert events via his Local 845 production company. Although Local 845's Beacon Riverfest is taking this summer off, the organization is presenting a run of four "boutique minifestivals" at the University Settlement Camp's theater. The first will feature New York punk brass band Gato Loco—who, Clair says, "blew the roof off" the town the last time they played there—plus Speed the Plough, Knock Yourself Out, Pontoon, and M Shanghai String Band. (The series' June 14 event features Babe the Blue Ox, the Mommyheads, and others.) 6pm. $15, $20. Beacon. (845) 202-3555; Beaconmusicfactory.com.
