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.

  • 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.
