Nightlife Highlights

May 2. Neither Laurie Anderson nor Pauline Oliveros are strangers to EMPAC; both of these monumentally adventurous composers have previously performed at the cutting-edge arts center, and Oliveros has long served as a professor of practice in the arts department at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, EMPAC's parent college. But a program that brings the two of them together? Wow. "The Films of Laurie Anderson" is a two-part event that begins with a screening of several of Anderson's film and video works and concludes with her and Oliveros, who turns 81 in May, performing live to the screening of a silent film. Certainly not anything you should miss. (Ryoichi Kurokawa's audiovisual work "syn_" appears May 3; the Albany Symphony Orchestra headlines the American Music Festival from May 30 to June 2.) 5pm. Check website for ticket prices. Troy.

Speaking of...

    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.
