Jon Anderson at Bearsville Theater

April 8, 9. Tales from topographic oceans—whatever the heck those might be—are sure to be told with vigor when the front man of prog rock legends Yes steers the filigreed stern of his silver-sailed ship our way this month. The UK-born singer and songwriter formed Mabel Greer's Toyshop in 1968 with guitarist Peter Banks and bassist Chris Squire, both formerly of freak-beat unit the Syn; after a name change to Yes, the act signed to Atlantic and began its 1970s FM-radio reign, eventually crossing over into the pop charts in the 1980s. This two-night stand at the Bearsville Theater sees the helium-voiced Anderson performing with members of Woodstock's Paul Green Rock Academy. (Shawn Mullins sings April 5; Javier Escovedo and the Sensitive Boys rock April 10.) 7pm. $35, $55, $99, $150. Bearsville. (845) 679-4406; Bearsvilletheater.com
