New supergroup Grizzly Adamz – featuring John Medeski, Jamie Saft, Danny Blume and Ben Perowsky – returns to Bearsville Theater in Woodstock at 9pm on Saturday, July 3. But that’s just one tidbit on Bearsville’s newly announced slate of shows. Take a look at these:
- Jakob Dylan & Three Legs on Friday, July 9 ($40)
- The double bill of Langhorn Slim and the Low Anthem at 8pm on Tuesday, July 20 ($12 in advance; $15 at the door)

And speaking of Yim Yames (aka, Jim James), his band My Morning Jacket is slated to roll into Mountain Park in Holyoke at 7pm on Wednesday, August 25. And, if memory serves us right, it just might be the band’s first show in Nippertown since their area debut at Northern Lights in Clifton Park way back in 2004.
