lovin’: Dino Danelli’s Nurture.
THAT ROCKS A Rock & Roll Hall of Famer is coming to Saratoga
Springs tomorrow (Friday, April 30) night, but he’s not going
to be rocking a nightclub. Rascals’ drummer Dino Danelli
will be presenting his works in another medium—visual art.
Mean Streets: The Drawings of Dino Danelli is a selection
of the artist’s striking, often intense drawings of people
and places. The event will be held from 5 to 8 PM at the Feast
Gallery & Meeting Space (2nd Floor, 142 Grand Ave.
at Beekman Street, Saratoga Springs). For more info, call
321-8473 or visit feastgallery.com.
FREE SPIRITS This weekend, Maude Baum and Company Dance
Theatre will offer two more presentations of their Isadora
Duncan Salon Concert. Company director Baum is renowned
for her understanding of Isadora Duncan’s choreography; these
shows are must-see events. The performances will be tomorrow
(Friday, April 30) and Saturday (May 1) at 7 PM at the eba
Theatre (Lark Street and Hudson Avenue, Albany). Tickets are
$25 general admission, $15 students and seniors, and $12 for
current eba students. For more info, call 465-9916.
REANIMATED Some of the fine folks behind the late, lamented
Kismet Gallery in Troy are bringing it back from the dead,
for just two nights. Kismet Gallery Revisited—why they
didn’t go for the catchier Zombie Kismet Gallery, I’ll never
know—will be open Friday and Saturday nights (April 30 and
May 1) from 5-9 PM for the exhibit Too Sweet & Seldom
Seen III. And from 9 PM to 2 AM, there will be music. One-hundred
percent of all artwork sales will go toward the support of
Joseph’s House & Shelter of Troy. As the Kismet
gang stated in their press release, “all featured work will
be created on recycled items culled from the streets. . .
. Like this artwork, the homeless are a forgotten segment
of our community—often treated as disposable. We at Kismet
believe that no one is disposable and that the homeless are
as much a part of our community as anyone else.” The Kismet
Gallery Revisited is, as before, located at 71 4th St. in
Troy. For more info, call 321-4199.
