There are a couple of cool things happening locally this week, music-wise, so I thought I’d round up some of them here for your gig-going pleasure.

Constant Smiles in Catskill

Synth pop band Constant Smiles will play with May Bird and No No Finger at the Avalon Lounge in Catskill on March 7 at 8pm. Over the last half decade, the music collective has produced a prolific output of acclaimed music, culminating in their new record, Kenneth Anger. The group is known for their much-praised debut album for Sacred Bones records, Paragons, an emotionally resonant offering of indie folk masterpieces. Tickets are $12.

John Sparrow in Woodstock

Violent Femmes drummer John Sparrow will perform with the Rock Academy Showband at Colony in Woodstock on March 11 at 7pm. Featuring an eclectic set of music from the 1950s through the 2010s, the setlist will include “Blister in the Sun” and other songs you know and love. Not to be tied down to any one genre, Sparrow has played sessions that showcase ballroom dance, polkas, waltzes, country, Latin, multiple idioms of jazz and rock, and more. Tickets are $23.37 in advance and $29.02 day of show.

Steampunk Celebration in Rosendale

On March 12 at 2pm, the Rosendale Theatre will present “A Steampunk and Daylight Savings Celebration” with a screening of the 1960 film adaptation of H.G. Wells’s science fiction classic The Time Machine followed by a live performance from acoustic folk punk duo Frenchy and the Punk. The film tells the story of a scientist’s journey into the future, during which he discovers a post-apocalyptic world inhabited by the humanoid Eloi people and the monstrous Morlocks that feed on them. After the movie, strut your best steampunk attire while dancing to Frenchy and the Punk’s fusion of foot-stompin’ bohemian cabaret folk, French chanson, ’80’s punk, and vaudeville charm. Tickets are $10 or $8 for costumed attendees and theater members.
