Over in Great Barrington, Mass., the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center has announced its upcoming season. Unfortunately, there isn’t much on tap that makes me want to gas up for a drive to the Berkshires – except maybe veteran comedian Robert Klein, whose September 12 performance is the gala fundraiser for the Fairview Hospital.
And really, are folks going to pay $34.50 to see jam band faves the Yonder Mountain String Band on Thursday, July 9, when they could catch the band at Revolution Hall in Troy just a week and a half earlier on Sunday, June 28?
For just $17.50? Which is just about half price…
Anyway, here are some of the musical highlights of the upcoming Mahaiwe concert calendar:
Friday, June 5, 8pm: Bjorn Again ($45/$30)
Friday, June 26, 8pm: Keller Williams ($32)
Sunday, July 5, 3pm: Dan Zanes & Friends ($25/$20)
Thursday, July 9, 8pm: Yonder Mountain String Band ($34.50)
Saturday, August 8, 8pm: Don McLean ($80/$50)
Friday, September 11, 8pm: Big Bad Voodoo Daddy ($42)
Saturday, September 12, 8pm: Robert Klein ($50)
Sunday, November 15, 3pm: Jane Monheit ($32)
Friday, December 18, 8pm: John Pizzarelli ($60/$40)
