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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
