Nightlife Highlights: Sidi Toure 

October 15. Descended from Malian royalty, singer and guitarist Sidi Toure plays droning “African blues” much like those of his better-known namesake, the late Ali Farke Toure. Sidi’s second album, Sahel Folk, newly out on taste-making US indie label Thrill Jockey, is a sublimely heady and hypnotic acoustic session taped live, field recording style, at his sister’s house with friends over glasses of native tea. It’s not clear if any such beverages will be on the menu for this date at the Falcon, but don’t let that keep you from what’s sure to be a magical performance. (Spottiswoode & His Enemies play October 1; Leni Stern strums October 13.) 7pm. Donation requested. Marlboro. (845) 236-7970; www.liveatthefalcon.com.

  • CD Review: Christine Spero's "Spero Plays Nyro"

    Why and how dare she devote an entire album to songs by Laura Nyro when we can just listen to the originals on Spotify? I'll tell you why. Because Christine Spero fully inhabits these songs, uncovers hidden nuances, and with her stunning ensemble—including drummer Peter O'Brien, bassist Scott Petito, saxophonist Elliot Spero, and Christine's own magic hands on the ivories.
