The Saw Doctors 

Nightlife Highlights

March 8. Speaking of the Emerald Isle, the Saw Doctors began in 1987 as a humble County Galway pub band and these days are, arguably, Ireland’s largest rock export since U2 and Sinead O’Connor. After touring the following year with the country’s other big act, the Waterboys, the quintet unleashed a formidable 18 Top 30 singles, including a number one with the lusty, irreverent “I Useta Lover.” This likely Guinness-fueled evening at the Chance comes the week before Saint Pat’s—which just means the party starts that much earlier. (The Ready Set, All-Star Weekend, and more rock March 1; the Sick Puppies play March 17.) 7pm. $20. Poughkeepsie. (845) 471-1966;

    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.
