January 4. New York band TriBeCaStan stirs together a rich and invigorating stew that fuses elements of Middle Eastern, Balkan, African, Latin American, and Indian styles, winning the effusive accolades of the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Village Voice. And with members who’ve played with James Brown, Ornette Coleman, Patti Smith, the Violent Femmes, Ween, and Taj Mahal, it’s safe to say the group has the Western-music side down as well. This return date by the torrid ensemble at the Towne Crier
gets 2014 off to a euphoric start. (Chip Taylor visits January 9; Caravan of Thieves steals in January 25.) 8:30pm. $15.
Beacon. (845) 855-1300.
