February 26. Formed in Woodstock in 1972 by then-teenagers Anthony (vocals, harmonica) and Jonathan (drums) Kane, the Kane Brothers Blues Band opened for Muddy Waters, James Cotton, and Willie Dixon. The group eventually found a welcoming home at CBGB, where its powerfully minimal blues fit right in with the nascent New York punk scene. After the band broke up, Anthony went to Chicago to play with Waters, Sam Lay, Koko Taylor, and other legends; Jonathan remained in Manhattan, co-founding noise-rockers Swans and working with avant-gardists Rhys Chatham, John Zorn, and La Monte Young. This Bearsville Theater date features the quintet's original lineup. (Syd Straw sings February 12; Dr. Dog makes a Valentine's Day house call February 14.) 8pm. $15. Bearsville. (845) 679-4406; www.bearsvilletheater.com.
