DALTON, Mass. — The Grammy-nominated band Crash Test Dummies will perform live at the Stationery Factory on March 11.
The Canadian rock band was originally scheduled to perform in May 2020 but the show was canceled in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The band rescheduled their Berkshire County stop on the 30th anniversary tour to Friday, March 11. 
"We have been so excited with the response to the 25th-anniversary tour that we knew we had to continue the party and celebrate 30 years since we made our first album. We had no idea that fans would be so enthusiastic and we are all a little gob-smacked that we can still play sold-out shows to our fans and, awesomely enough, their kids," said original band member Ellen Reid.
The concert starts at 8 p.m. Click here for more information.
Thirty years ago, the Crash Test Dummies recorded their debut album "The Ghosts That Haunt Me.'' It garnered them their first hit in "Superman's Song," and a Juno Award for Group of the Year. They carried that momentum into their successful and multi-Grammy nominated "God Shuffled His Feet," released in 1993. This album, which went double platinum in the United States, included the popular song "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm."
Setlists will include hits from the band's catalog. Original members Reid, Brad Roberts, Dan Roberts, and Mitch Dorge will be joined onstage by Stuart Cameron and Marc Arnould.
The Stationery Factory houses local businesses and community events. On the main stage, both local talent and national touring acts perform.
Tickets can be purchased here.

Dalton Green Committee Navigates Adding Fire District to Green Communities Division

By Sabrina DammsiBerkshires Staff
DALTON, Mass. — The Green Committee considering including the Fire District under the town’s Green Communities Division. 
During the Green Committee's last week, member Thomas Irwin broached the subject with his fellow members. 
The town is part of the state Green Communities Division, which aids local municipalities in lowering lower energy use, through clean energy projects in buildings, facilities, and schools, by providing grants, technical assistance. 
Irwin and Committee Chair David Wasielewski will look into this information to determine if incorporating the district is possible. 
The Fire District and town are two separate governing bodies. The Fire and Water departments are the Fire District's responsibility. The Board of Water Commissioners and the Prudential Committee govern the district.
There are a number of steps that would have to be undertaken. One easy step is having the district approve a zero emission vehicle policy for the Fire Department, Irwin said. 
Irwin informed the committee that Fire Chief Christian Tobin said he sees no barriers in approving a policy and that they are in the process of getting a policy approved.
