Little known fact: The B-52’s used to live in Mahopac back in the 1980s. Yes, that’s right, back in the days of “Cosmic Thing,” “Roam,” and “Love Shack,” the group was actually recording tunes right in Putnam County.
Which is my awkward way to segueing into news that they’ll be returning to the greater Lower Hudson Valley region again soon. On April 11 they’re set to host a concert at the Performing Arts Center at SUNY Purchase. The event will be a fundraiser for Open Door Family Medical Centers, and Scarsdale’s Jimmy Fink, a DJ for 107.1 The Peak, will play host. Now the catch: tickets to the concert cost from $75 to $125, and if you want to attend the benefit dinner, be prepared to shell out $500.
