    Hitchcock Week at the Madison

      The Master of Suspense holds court at Albany’s Madison Theater this week with four terrific films: Dial “M” for Murder, Rear Window, North by Northwest and The Birds. To sum up, respectively: a murderous husband plots the killing of his faithless wife; a voyeur in a leg cast thinks his neighbor across a New [...]

    New Madrid

      Indie rock quartet New Madrid hail from Athens, Ga., which should give you a sense of the tradition they’re tasked with upholding. Somewhere from within the constellation of R.E.M., Drive-By Truckers and Neutral Milk Hotel you’ll find the band’s psych-tinged guitar escapades. It was alongside Futurebirds and Dead Confederate that they first made their [...]

    Huey Mack

      As a teenager, Huey Mack started his writing and rapping hobby as a joke. Funny how just two years ago his free mixtape, A Boy Named Hue, charted at number three on iTunes. The 22-year-old rapper is an independent hip-hop artist from West Virginia. Mack has gained a devoted following in the college demographic [...]

    America’s Test Kitchen Live

The show is presented by Cook’s Illustrated magazine, of which Kimball is also the editor. If you haven’t, the guiding purpose of jovial but serious Kimball and his crack team of [...]

    Albany Symphony Orchestra

      The Albany Symphony and maestro David Alan Miller want to transport you to exotic lands this Saturday at the Palace with Rimsky-Korsakov’s sweeping, romantic Scheherazade, an Arabian tale with a decidedly Russian flavor. Before that, however, they’ll premiere Caramore’s Summer, a new work by composer Chen Yi. And they’ll also perform one of the [...]
  • The Artist Theater Program

      This multi-artist, multi-form evening of art and performance at EMPAC on Friday is “a choreographed chorus of individual woks that move, collide and overlap in time, responding to the space and mechanics of the theater’s architectural infrastructure by combining performers, artworks, sets, props and lighting effects that echo the corporeal, erotic, sensual, expressive, and [...]

    The Hold Steady

      It’s been a sweaty decade for the Hold Steady. Last week the band released their sixth album in 10 years, which is a whole lot of studio time to work into their already-hyperactive touring schedule. But if ever there was a caffeine-addled rock band, it’s the Hold Steady, who have consistently mixed working-class ethos [...]

    Nora Jane Struthers and the Party Line

One-half of a father-daughter duo, Struthers got her start playing folk clubs in her native New York before striking out solo to Nashville. There, she scored a record deal and hit CMT video in due time. With her [...]
