February 5, 12, 19, 26. Kingston’s self-described “free-improvising, psychedelic, noise-rock, spazz-jazz band” Ultraam is an underground super group made up of guitarist Grasshopper and drummer Jeff Mercel (both of Mercury Rev), drummer Chris Turco (Chron Turbine, Les Savy Fav), guitarist Matthew Cullen (Duke McVinnie Band), keyboardist/saxophonist D. James Goodwin (Snowflake), trumpeter Mark Ferraro, and bassist Eli Walker II (Bishop Allen, Lia Ices). Since forming last year, the out-there outfit has been readying for the release of their first album, and has set up this month-long residency at the Anchor to help raise awareness about the project. Each of the four Fridays will feature a different guest opening/collaborative act. 8pm. Call for ticket price. Kingston. (845) 853-8124.
