    Mary Reid Kelley: Working Objects and Videos

      Mary Reid Kelley: Working Objects and Videos is a collection of the widely praised artist’s video art, as well as the “finely crafted and researched costumes, objects, and drawings she creates for her videos.” In 2011, when she was just two years out of grad school (Yale), The New York Times praised her video [...]

    Smokey Joe’s Café

      This is the longest running revue in Broadway history, and it’s coming to Albany’s Capital Rep this week. A collection of 39 hits by the dynamic songwriter team of Mike Leiber and Jerry Stoller, Smokey Joe’s Café’s may pull you in with the Elvis hits (“Hound Dog” and “Jailhouse Rock”), but the breadth of [...]

    Love in the Wars

      BardSummerscape always takes its theme from the Bard Music Festival. This year the latter is Schubert and His World, so the former explores all manner of romanticism. This year’s world-premiere play is an English language adaptation of Panthesilea by German poet (and Schubert contemporary) Heinrich von Kleist. It concerns the collision between the titular [...]

    GE Kids Day

      GE Kids Day is always one of the Empire State Plaza’s family-friendly highlights. There will be food vendors, bounce rides, pony rides, face painting, a Hannaford Ice Cream Challenge—and more. In other words, it’s a myriad of activities that equals fun for the whole family. There’s always a featured “celebrity” kid favorite. This year [...]

    Hudson Music Project

      We thought this one might have been a joke back when the lineup was first released. Every year, the Internet gleefully photoshops Coachella posters to insert dream-team line-ups. But the Hudson Music Project is for real. And it’s barely an hour away. Hosted at the site of Woodstock 94, the innaugural event appears to [...]

    Snoop Dogg (AKA Snoop Lion)

      It’s a good thing rap names aren’t legally binding. Otherwise, Calvin Broadus would have one hell of a time filling out paperwork at the DMV. Originally minted in Compton as Snoop Doggy Dogg, Snoop Dogg built a career on blunted West-Coast flows like “Gin and Juice” that came to define early gangsta rap. But [...]

    Justin Timberlake

      He owns restaurants, has his own clothing company, produces records, acts in major motion pictures, and he sings a little too. Justin Timberlake is bringing sexy to Albany with his 20/20 World Tour. His most recent release was the double album The 20/20 Experience, which came out a little over a year ago and [...]

    Gems of the Region: An American Music Recital
