For my first concert plug of 2019, we are going to take a look at a stirring folk influenced concert in nearby Woodstock.
Occupying the formerly quite static Broadway Joe’s, Tubby’s offers charm, warmth, a great menu and much friendlier vibes.
Two hundred and thirty guests who otherwise would not have had a special Christmas meal dined on holiday fare such as roast turkey with stuffing and cranberry and applesauce, smoked salmon, rice and beans, vegan baked ziti, string beans, sweet potatoes, roasted potatoes, corn and bread and rolls.
As I watched and listened to the families around me, I noticed how excited everyone in my train was by this experience. So many kids of all ages and their parents laughed, danced and smiled practically the whole 90-minute ride.

Graziadei kindly spoke to me in advance of his upcoming tour with Thy Will Be Done which touches down at The Loft in Poughkeepsie on Thursday, Dec. 13.
The group’s latest effort, Menetekel, is a remarkable and unusually colorful journey that follows the duo’s creative north star through soundscapes ranging from ominous to elevating. I was thrilled to touch base for an interview with the philosophical group prior to their upcoming gig at The Beverly Lounge on Friday, Dec. 7.
Located a stone’s throw from The Beverly, Lis Bar adds yet more enticement to visit a part of Kingston that’s been overshadowed by other nightlife hot spots in town.
Kingston isn’t just a community of artists, it’s also a community of arts-related businesses — and the two are intrinsically connected.
