June 2. Organized by area resident Natalie Merchant, the stellar lineup of this evening at Bard College's Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts is female-dominated by design: Titled Shelter and co-sponsored by Chronogram, it's a benefit concert designed to raise awareness of domestic violence against women around the world and to assist two Hudson Valley domestic violence shelters, Kingston's Washbourne House and Poughkeepsie's Grace Smith House. In addition to Merchant, who will appear with the Bard Conservatory of Music's Kalmia String Quartet, performers include Amy Helm, Elizabeth Mitchell, Simi Stone, and Yungchen Lhamo, the soaring Tibetan vocalist who duetted with Merchant on 1998's Ophelia. (Comedian Sandra Bernhard mouths off July 5.) 7pm. $40, $65, $80, $250. Annandale-on-Hudson. (845) 758-7928;
