Blonde Redhead

June 20. New York outfit Blonde Redhead began in 1993 as a noisy quartet—females Kazu Mikino (vocals, guitar) and Maki Takahashi (bass) and twin Italian brothers Simone (drums, vocals) and Amadeo Pace (guitar)—that was in thrall to early Sonic Youth and '70s No Wavers like DNA (they're named for one of the latter's songs). After Takahashi's departure and some occasional guest bassists, the group, which here lands at Pearl Street, in Sonic Youth's post-New York stomping ground of Western Mass, formally pared down to the trio of Mikino and the Pace siblings. On their recent albums the band has pursued more of a shoegazey, psychedelic-pop direction, quieting down further still with last year's acoustic-sprinkled Barragan. 8:30pm. $20, $23. Northampton, Massachusetts. (413) 584-7771;

    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.
