Be Here Now: Music at the Mahaiwe

May 21st, 2009, 11:09 am by Greg

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)

Sunday, February 7, 3pm: Ladysmith Black Mambazo ($39)
