Roxbury Revelry Brings Vintage Baseball

On September 1 from noon to 9pm, Kirkside Park in Roxbury will come alive with the bat-cracking sounds of turn-of-the-century-style baseball when hometown heroes the Roxbury Nine take on the New York Mutuals. The family-friendly event will also feature live music by Nashville-based hot jazz band Ellis Dyson and the Shambles, a community potluck meal, and fireworks.


Woodstock Museum's Free Film Festival in Saugerties

The Woodstock Museum’s 20th annual Free Film Festival kicked off last night at its Saugerties location and runs through September 2. The screenings pick up again today at 6:30pm and promise a packed lineup of independent dramas, comedies, and documentaries. As the festival’s name indicates, admission to all films is free. See website for showtimes and more information.

MUSIC SHEL Shakes Up Helsinki Hudson

Made up of sisters Eva, Hannah, Sarah, and Liza Holbrook, the Colorado folk-pop group SHEL draw comparisons to Americana acts like the Punch Brothers and Crooked Still but also cite indie artists like tUnE-yArDs, St. Vincent, and Alt-J as influences. The quartet will perform at Club Helsinki in Hudson on September 1 at 8pm. Tickets are $15.


Car Show Rolls into Cornwall

On September 2 from 2-6pm, the Greater Cornwall Chamber of Commerce will present its Fourth Annual Car Show at the town’s Riverlight Park. In addition to a juried show of classic cars (with trophies going to the top 50 cars), there will be raffles, children's activities, food trucks and more.

MUSIC One Eleven Heavy Jams in Kingston

The sound of One Eleven Heavy is, well, heavily indebted to that of the Grateful Dead and other late ’60s/early ’70s music. The jam-centric band was formed when indie stalwarts James Toth (Wooden Wand) and Nick Mitchell Maiato (Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura) met and bonded over a shared love of the Dead, Little Feat, and Neil Young. The group features the playing of sometime members of Royal Trux, Solar Motel, Hiss Golden Messenger, the Golden Grass, and Steve Gunn’s band, and will play Tubby’s in Kingston with local psych rockers It’s Not Night: It’s Space on September 2 at 8pm.
