It seems we are always looking for things to brighten up the dreary days of winter.  Or we at least want something to look forward to.  Thanks to The Bardavon 1869 Opera House in Poughkeepsie and UPAC in Kingston we can do just that.

This Tuesday night, Jan. 19 guitar great Joe Bonamassa will do an acoustic show at UPAC.  That will brighten up a mid week winter night for sure.  Los Lobos will be at UPAC on March 12, and Meatloaf is coming to UPAC on March 21.  Do you love Boz Scaggs?  I do.  He will play UPAC on April 17.  Paula Poundstone brings her comedy to The Bardavon on June 24.  Not to mention shows from The Hudson Valley Philharmonic and some great movies on the big screens.

You can also become a Bardavon member.  Not only will you get to buy tickets before the general public, you will also be supporting a great organization.  For the full schedule and more information, check out the Bardavon/UPAC website at
