Fall Arts Best Bets: POPULAR MUSIC

With so much great music in the area this fall, it’s hard to narrow it down to the top five.

With so much great music in the area this fall, it’s hard to narrow it down to the top five, but here are some of the standouts:

Son Volt at The Egg — Alt-country-rock bands, with a pedal steel player in each. Sept. 18.

Moby at LarkFEST — Best lineup in years for this vast free festival in Albany, featuring the seldom-seen techno-rock wizard, plus Irish rockers Bell X-1. Sept. 19.

Lyle Lovett & His Large Band at The Egg — They’re as good as they are big, and they’re one of the biggest — OK, “largest” — bands on the road. Nov. 3.

The Meat Puppets at Valentine’s — Re-formed twice after breakups and troubles of all kinds, the Arizona psychedelic cow-punks are back with a strong new album, “Sewn Together.” Nov. 20.

The subdudes at The Egg — From New Orleans via Colorado, they’re one of America’s greatest bands. Dec. 5.
