  • Wishbone Ash plays Daryl's House on September 29.

September 29. Founded in late-1960s England, hard/prog rockers Wishbone Ash stood out for their calling card of Andy Powell and Ted Turner's twin lead guitars; used-LP bin trawlers of the 1980s (guilty) will recall their omnipresent 1972 opus, Argus, with its enigmatic cover art depicting a backward-facing, medieval/Darth Vader-like figure (song titles: "Thrown Down the Sword," "Warrior," "The King Will Come," etc.). The band, which rocks Daryl's House this month, still features Powell on vocals and guitar; Turner has been replaced by Muddy Manninen, and the group has seen turnovers in the rhythm section. But still the Ash marches on; They're currently celebrating their 47th anniversary. (John Mayall jams September 15; Midge Ure and Richard Lloyd of Television take off October 1.) 8pm. $20, $30. Pawling. (845) 289-0185; Darylshouseclub.com.

    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.
