August 24. It was a sad end to an amazing era when Black Swan manager and music booker Michael Nickerson left his post at the beloved Tivoli tavern. But, as they say, on to better things. Now ensconced at the similarly inviting Liberty Public House, Nickerson's has been bringing his sage programming to the new and nearby venue, setting up nights like this one by Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Pete Pidgeon and his band, Arcoda. Pidgeon, a sometime collaborator of Levon Helm, Gorillaz's Gabe Wallace, and Sting's Fareed Haque, is currently touring in support of Growing Pains, a three-song EP recorded in Nashville. (The Big Takeover skanks it up August 2.) 10pm. $5. Rhinebeck.
