UFO

October 10. A paragon act of British hard rock, UFO was launched in the late 1960s and for several years notably included ex-Scorpions lead guitarist Michael Schenker. Although it's the Phil Mogg-fronted band's slicker, late `70's LPs with Schenker—Force It, Lights Out, Obessession, the live Strangers in the Night—that sold best in America and England, it's UFO's first two albums, the spacey, Sabbathy UFO 1 and Flying, that remain lost gems of the psych-metal canon. Check YouTube for some prime clips from this hallowed period. With Kristen Cappolino, Awaken, and Three for All. (Richie Scarlet riffs October 4; Dying Fetus tops a seven-band death metal blow-out October 30.) 7pm. $22, $25. Poughkeepsie. (845) 471-1966; Thechancetheater.com.
