  • 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 The band, which rocks Daryl's House this month, still features Powell on vocals and guitar; Turner has been replaced by Muddy Manninen, and the group has seen turnovers in the rhythm section.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.
