Nightlife Highlights: Yankee Cockfight

May 6. Hailing and wailing from New Hampshire, the duo Yankee Cockfight claim as their influences R.L. Burnside, GG Allin, Hasil Adkins, Eyehategod, Antiseen, Jelly Roll Kings, Misfits, Scissorfight, Wu Tang Clan, Motörhead, Melvins, Sonny Boy Williamson, Black Sabbath, and Howlin' Wolf—which gives a fair enough indication of their brand of grimy punk blues. Comprised of the Mighty Junior (vocals, harmonica) and Scrimmy the Dirtbag (guitar, kick drum), the twosome has been touring hard on their lo-fi debut, Keep Bangin', and sullies the stage of the Anchor this month. With Kiel Grove and Zach Slik. (Lara Hope and the Ark-Tones celebrate their new CD May 5; Dyspell and others rock May 27.) 9:30pm. $5. Kingston. (845) 853-8124.
