Artie Lang [link] | Paramount Hudson Valley
COMEDIAN. ACTOR. WRITER. RADIO STAR. One of the most sought after live comedians in the business, Artie Lange is currently the co-host of "The Artie Lange Show," a Fox News Radio show he created. Launched this past fall, the show has already garnered rave reviews and a massive fan base. Lange was a beloved regular on "The Howard Stern Show" for five years and during that time his first memoir, Too Fat To Fish became a New York Times bestseller, paving the way for his second book, Crash and Burn, published in 2013. Artie's first TV stand-up hour special, The Stench of Failure, premiered on Comedy Central in October 2014.

NYBG Train Show [link] | New York Botanical Garden, NYC
Enchanting model trains zip through a display of 150 landmarks, each re-created with bark, leaves, and other natural materials—all under the twinkling glow of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. This year's exhibition features 3,000 square feet of additional exhibition space, making room for dozens of new trains, bridges, and tracks. Marvel at G-scale locomotives humming along among familiar sights such as the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, and Rockefeller Center—surprising at every turn—on a quarter-mile of track.

Saturday, November 21 @ 7:30pm
Frazey Ford [link] | Common Ground Coffeehouse at the First Unitarian Society of Westchester, 25 Old Jackson Avenue, Hastings
The line between country music and soul is a lot thinner than one would think. Frazey Ford first gained attention as one third of The Be Good Tanyas—a group that was more Kentucky bluegrass than Memphis soul—but as a solo artist, Ford has proven that she’s got more than one trick up her sleeve.

Wednesday, November 25 @ 8pm
George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic [link] | Paramount Hudson Valley, Peekskill
There's gonna be a P-Funk Party at the Paramount the night before Thanksgiving! George Clinton revolutionized R&B during the '70s, twisting soul music into funk by adding influences from several late-'60s acid heroes: Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, and Sly Stone.

Saturday, December 5 @ 8pm
Dar Williams with special guests The Nields [link] | Irvington Town Hall Theater
DAR WILLIAMS’ growth as an individual over her two-decade career has gone hand in hand with her evolution as an artist. This is perhaps best typified by the release of “Emerald,” a timely and brilliant album of new songs and collaborations with friends such as Jill Sobule, Richard Thompson, the Hooters, Jim Lauderdale, Lucy Wainwright Roche and her mother Suzzy Roche. Opening the evening are The NIELDS, whose albums are often an eclectic mix of ideas and music styles, but clear themes emerge. Love and China (2002) was  about the fragility of love and relationships. The Full Catastrophe (2012) exploredthe messy experience of raising a family.

Saturday, January 30 @ 8pm
