Nightlife Highlights: Ida Blue 

Ida Blue

October 3. Brooklyn-born Ida Blue draws on the collective spirit of the Smiths—no, not Morrissey's crew. Instead of the Pope of Mope, we're talking about Bessie, Mamie, Trixie, and Clara Smith, as well as other prewar blues divas. Known as New York's rising queen of the bodega blues, she regularly performs at venues in her home borough and Manhattan with the backing of such trad jazz luminaries as trumpeter Jon-Erik Kelso (Leon Redbone, Vince Giordano's Nighthawks), pianist Conal Fowkes (Woody Allen's band), and reedsman Dan Block (Boardwalk Empire Orchestra). Blue, who here checks into the Rosendale Cafe, has also recorded under the watchful ears of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings guitarist/emcee Binky Griptite. Hotcha! (Dylan Foley and Dan Gurney bring the hooley October 11; Gerry O'Beime makes more Celtic sounds October 24.) 8pm. $12. Rosendale. (845) 658-9048. Rosendalecafe.com.
