June 23. There's truly only one Kinky Friedman. Besides being hailed as "the Frank Zappa of country music," the Austin, Texas, institution is a self-proclaimed "author, columnist, musician, and beautician" and one-time gubernatorial candidate whose songs like "Ride 'Em Jewboy" and "They Ain't Making Jews like Jesus Anymore" reference his Jewish heritage with sidesplittingly in-your-face panache.

(Melanie lays it down June 2; Kelli Scar croons June 22.) 8pm. $30. Bearsville. (845) 679-4406; Bearsvilletheater.com.
