Jonathan Richman

November 16. When it comes to memorable local concerts, Jonathan Richman's 2014 show at the Rosendale Theatre was truly one for the annals of Hudson Valley history. Now in his early 60s, the founder of legendary Boston protopunks the Modern Lovers ("Roadrunner") was as gregarious, animated, and full of his trademark poetic, wide-eyed boyishness as ever. To a packed house, he hopped offstage to dance interpretively to the beats of his long-time drummer Tommy Larkins between crooning crowd favorites like "Dancing in the Lesbian Bar." Warm and magical it was. In times like these, we're in dire need of another fix from this sunny, semi-acoustic troubadour. And we'll get one when Richman returns to said venue for this engagement. 7pm. $20. Rosendale. (845) 658-8989; Rosendaletheatre.org.
