  • Amy Rigby and Wreckless Eric play BSP Lounge on July 21.

July 21. Now based in Catskill, this husband-and-wife team is the union of two of the finest pop songwriters around. British expat Wreckless Eric was, along with Elvis Costello, Ian Dury, Nick Lowe, and others, one of the early stars of seminal punk label Stiff Records; his 1977 debut single “Whole Wide World” remains, for our money, one of the greatest 45s of all time. A veteran of the ’80s New York scene, Amy Rigby played in the Last Roundup and the Shams before making her solo debut with 1996’s acclaimed Diary of a Mod Housewife. The couple plays BSP Lounge this month and is currently finishing their third album. Mike Hollis opens. (Sarah Perrotta returns July 12; Living with Elephants jam July 14.) 8pm. $10, $12. Kingston. (845) 481-8158; Bsplounge.com
