Nightlife Highlights: The Left Banke

August 20. The Left Banke, arguably, invented Baroque rock with 1967’s gloriously sublime and immortal hits, “Walk Away Renee” and “Pretty Ballerina.” As with the Gandalf albums mentioned here last month, the band’s long-out-of-print debut LP, which includes those two strings-and-harpsichord-laced gems, has been reissued by Coxsackie’s Sundazed Music. Although original singer Michael Brown has deigned not to partake, it’s still hard not to look forward to this Bearsville Theater reunion. (Three of a Perfect Pair, featuring King Crimson’s Adrian Belew, Tony Levin, and Pat Mastelotto, holds court August 25; Steve Earle returns September 2.) 8pm. $25. Bearsville. (845) 679-4406; www.bearsvilletheater.com.

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.
