MUSIC: Ukulele Night @ the Moon & River Cafe, Schenectady. My. Dog. Has. Fleas. Yes, tune up the old four-string, and join Ron Gordon for a night of ukulele madness. Play along, or just sit and listen. Either way, it’ll bring a smile to your face. 7-9pm. Free.
MUSIC: Yes @ the Calvin Theater, Northampton, Mass. Let’s see now, the last time that Yes came to town was November 2008 when they played the 17,000-seat Times Union Center. Tonight, the veteran British prog-rockers are stepping into the spotlight at the 700-seat Calvin. So if you want an intimate Yes experience, this is the show to see. Chris Squire, Steve Howe and Alan White are all onboard, but on the other hand, we find it difficult to actually call the band “Yes” without Jon Anderson at the microphone. 8pm. $35, $55, $75.
