Modern English | September 19Few who were alive in the shameless '80s can forget Modern English's mega-hit "I Melt with You." Formed in 1977 as punk band the Lepers, the British outfit, who visit Daryl's House this month, altered their style to Joy Division-esque postpunk before signing to the seminal 4AD label. The aberrantly poppy, anthemic "Melt," a single from their 1982 sophomore album After the Snow, became an MTV blockbuster via its inclusion on the soundtrack of the hit teen comedy Valley Girl. They play at Daryl's House with Bootblacks. (Brand X brings the prog September 13; the Dan Tyminski Band tears it up October 2.) 7pm. $40, $55. Pawling.
Joan Osborne | September 19Singer-songwriter Joan Osborne struck Top 10 gold with her 1995 smash hit "One of Us" before going on to perform with the Dead and Phil Lesh and as a member of Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman's super group, Trigger Hippy. Here, the Lilith Fair songbird lands at City Winery Hudson Valley as part of its Outdoor Concert Series for a special performance at the site's lawn, which is partitioned off into socially distanced "pod" sections, each with space enough for two to ten people. As of this writing, Rear Lawn area pod tickets are available. (Amy Helm appears September 5; Chris Thile holds forth September 12.) 3pm. $240 per pod. Montgomery.
Art Walk Kingston | September 26-27Sponsored by Arts Mid-Hudson, Art Walk Kingston celebrates the vibrant arts community of the thriving Ulster County city each year. And while 2020 has, of course, transformed into an annus horribilis like no other, the festival has transformed itself along with it; instead of the freewheeling gallery crawl and performance panoply of previous installments, this year's return will be limited to showings at selected galleries and private spaces, as well as a special virtual gallery. Events will be held from noon to 5pm each day, and participating artists include painter Cyndy DiBenneditto; sculptors Diane Tenerlli, Hans Van Meeuwen, and Pamela Blum; jeweler Marysa Sacerdote; and mixed-media artists Rosalie Frankel. See website for locations and information.
Robin Trower | October 3
UK guitar god Robin Trower got his big break as a member of Procol Harum, joining the group immediately after they scored a worldwide hit with 1967's "A Whiter Shade of Pale" and appearing on their self-titled debut album. By 1973 he was leading his own band, whose molten brand of Hendrix-y heavy psych/hard-rock blues hit its white-hot apex with the following year's stoner classic, Bridge of Sighs. The titanic Trower taps into our region for this episode of the Egg's ongoing Guest Music Presentations Series. (The Mutts Gone Nuts comedy dog spectacular is off the leash October 4.) 8pm. $39.50, $49.50, $59.50. Albany.
