WGXC Lodge From August 21 to 23

August 21-23. It seems like only last month—not six years ago—that we covered the collective, grassroots effort to launch the Hudson Valley’s only community radio station, WGXC (90.7-FM in Greene and Columbia counties and online). Since then, the volunteer-run effort has added to its endlessly varied schedule with broadcasts centering on regional and international news, youth programs, talk, ethnic interests, selected syndicated content, and a dizzyingly diverse music spectrum (full disclosure/plug: your music editor hosts a WGXC show, “The PA System,” 7-9:30pm on first Wednesdays), all of it supported mainly by listener donations and fund-raising events. Among the latter operating-costs generators is this weekend-long happening at Riedelbauer’s Resort boasting live music by the Roving Cowboys, Herbcraft, MV & EE, Pigeons, P.G. Six, and Rhyton, interstitial sounds by DJ Lunar Moss, and more. See website for schedule. $15, $25. Round Top. (518) 622-2598; Wgxc.org.

    If you want to catch some of the best jazz in the Hudson Valley, head over to the Derby bar and restaurant on Main Street in Poughkeepsie. 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.
