The Quiet Life / Ballroom Thieves

  • The Quiet Life

December 10. The last time we caught Portland, Oregon's the Quiet Life at BSP Lounge, which they revisit for this date, the band was in full-on Crazy Horse mode—heavy, meaty riffs and long, wailing solos were the order of the day. The group's 2011 album, Big Green (named for their vegetable oil-burning touring van) took the bearded-and-flannelled foursome in a softer acoustic direction, perhaps living up to their name a bit more. Their new effort, Wild Pack, however, is being praised for its balance of both feels. Boston's Ballroom Thieves also plough the new-Americana field, utilizing guitar, cello, and percussion. (The Blow and Wave Sleep Wave waft in December 2; Caroline Rose croons December 11.) 8pm. $7. Kingston.

(845) 481-5158; Bspkingston.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.
