Booker T. Jones 

Nightlife Highlights

March 9. As the leader of the famed Booker T. and the MG's, organist Booker T. Jones is one of the major architects of American soul music. He and the MG's were the house band at Memphis's legendary Stax Records, for whom they cut such instrumental hits as "Green Onions," "Hip Hug-Her," and "Time is Tight" and backed legends like Otis Redding, Carla Thomas, Wilson Pickett, Sam and Dave, and Albert King. Jones, who plays a rare Hudson Valley engagement at the Bearsville Theater this month, has also worked with non-Stax artists ranging from Neil Young to Willie Nelson, the Roots, Soul Asylum, and John Lee Hooker. The Jonny Monster Band opens. (Brother Joscephus and the Love Revolution rise up March 15; Joan Osborne performs March 29.) 8pm. $35, $45.
