    Netsayi

      What does it mean to be an African in 2014? This question is at the core of Zimbabwean singer-songwriter Netsayi’s music. Dubbed the “Queen of Afrofolk,” her answer comes in contemporary colors and traditional rhythms. Originally a filmmaker, the London-based performer transitioned to the music world when she realized the medium better suited the [...]

    A Nod to the Past

      The new show at the Carrie Haddad Gallery, A Nod to the Past, will feature paintings by Mark Beard, Bruce Murphy and James O’Shea, and photographs by David Halliday. The “nod” takes different forms with each artist. Beard has based his recent paintings on glass-plate negatives taken by his great-great grandfather. Halliday likes to [...]

    A Midsummer Night’s Dream

      If you peruse our theater listings, you will find that there are no fewer than three productions of A Midsummer Night’s Dream currently ongoing. There’s a reason for this: It’s one of Shakespeare’s very best. This production is part of the 8th Annual Helderberg Theater Festival and is being performed under the stars at [...]

    Bruno Mars

      Bruno Mars has done his homework. The industry’s 13th-richest musician didn’t get to become the sensation he is on good luck and gimmicks. He’s studied the greats—Michael Jackson, Prince, James Brown—and he’s got the vocal range, dance steps, guitar chops and pop hits to back that hefty paycheck. Starting out as a songwriter—who lent [...]

    MOMIX

      Can it really be 33 years since Moses Pendleton founded MOMIX, the shape-shifting troupe of “dancer-illusionists?” Yes, it can, and over the course of three decades MOMIX has built up a formidable repertoire of choreography. When they take the stage at SPAC Tuesday night, they’ll be presenting an array of works from their considerable [...]

    Gogol Bordello, Man Man

        Now, this is an apt pairing. They’ve got the circus pomp, they’ve got the junkyard percussion—they’ve got the mustaches. Gogol Bordello are, of course, the screwball, Warp Tour-ing gypsy punk orchestra. Last year, they released Pura Vida Conspiracy, and when they play the Upstate Concert Hall, the ceiling sweats. Man Man are no [...]

    The Oh Hellos

      Everyone inevitably knows one of those families who, without any explanation, have obnoxiously talented children; and if you didn’t, now you do. Maggie and Tyler Heath, hailing from Texas, comprise the core of electric-folk band the Oh Hellos. Whilst alternating dreamy vocals, the two are normally joined by a variable ensemble cast on stage. [...]
