Self-conscious retro stylings and premodern identities will be the order of the night when the original American roots specialists Spuyten Duyvil pair with the spaghetti-Western evocations and haunted myths of Alectro at the Towne Crier in Beacon on Thursday, August 6 at 7:30 p.m. Driven by the songwriting couple Mark Miller and Beth Kaufman, Spuyten Duyvil’s earthy and authentic poly-roots originals have earned the band shows at Citi Field and Lincoln Center, among other intimate folk venues. The collaboration of longtime session players Jeff Eyrich and Steve Kirkman, Alectro serves up a variety dark and reverb-drenched Morricone homages, noir blues and twisted mariachi treats on their fine 2015 release School of Desire.
Admission costs $20. The Towne Crier Café is located at 379 Main Street in Beacon. For more information, call (845) 855-1300 or visit www.townecrier.com.
