Nightlife Highlights

March 11, 12, 13. With beginnings in 2003, the Woodstock Goddess Festival is a three-day celebration of dance, music, and poetry that also happens to raise much-needed funds for Family of Woodstock’s battered women’s shelter. The first-named component of this commendably female-centric event is heavy on the ancient art of belly dance (Twisted Tassels, Barushka, Bard Belly Dance Troupe, Elizabeth Muise, others), while the latter element is served by a poetry slam emceed by Chronogram’s own Phillip Levine. In between there’s plenty of local music from Mamalama, Hemingway’s Cat, Wet Paint, Peggy Atwood, Half Naked, Fre Atlast, and more. A great time for a great cause. 7pm. $12. Kingston, Saugerties, Woodstock. See website or call for venues and schedule.

  • 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.
