What to Do this Weekend: November 4-6, 2016

Now that Halloween is behind us, we have a few weeks to rest up before it’s time to get into the holiday spirit ahead of Thanksgiving. With that in mind, it’s understandable you’d want to take it easy on the excitement this weekend. So check out these worthwhile activities that will keep you amused without spending too much energy. 

 

For the Beatles Fanatic

If you love scouring the web for the rarest Beatles photos and footage, then you probably wouldn’t want to miss out on this behind-the-scenes documentary from Apollo 13’s Ron Howard. With re-mastered footage, the film looks into The Beatles’ Beatlemania years between 1962-1966, including fully restored, never-before-seen footage from their 1965 Shea Stadium concert performance. You can catch a screening of the film on Friday at the Pelham Picture House, or Saturday and Sunday at Jacob Burns.

 

For the Stand-Up Enthusiast

Mad TV and The Howard Stern Show veteran Artie Lange is hitting Peekskill’s Paramount Theater this Saturday to flex his stand-up muscles. For a small taste of his comedic chops, you would only have to listen to a few minutes of The Artie Quitter Podcast, where Lange is unleashed from the confines of his regular television gigs. Like his podcast personality, or even his hardcore roasting of William Shatner on Comedy Central, Lange never holds back once he gets out on the stage.

For the Monkey Man

Toots and the Maytals, Port Chester

Having lent a heavy hand in charting the course of Jamaican music, and possibly having coined the term ”reggae” themselves with their 1968 single Do the Reggay, Toots and the Maytals are easily one of the greatest sounds coming out of Jamaica. You can catch frontman Toot Hibbert’s unrivaled dynamism at Port Chester’s The Capitol Theatre this Friday after the group hits the Brooklyn Bowl this Thursday, so you know they’ll be warmed up and ready to get down to funky business

For the Lover of Classical

Westchester Symphonic Winds, Tarrytown  

In honor of the 15th anniversary of 9/11, the Westchester Symphonic Winds will be dedicating the opening concert of their fall program to America’s Armed Forces and first responders. With guest conductor Dr. Bradley Ethington, from Syracuse University, at the helm, the Symphonic Winds will be performing 20th century masterpieces, like Pictures at an Exhibition by Modeste Mussorgsky and Second Suite in F, by Gustav Holst. Plus, with a euphonium solo from John Palatucci, this night is sure to be filled with fanfare.
