    Fragments

      In Fragments, the new show at LARAC’s Lapham Gallery, the gallery notes explain that “many artworks in this exhibit seek to challenge our perception of our environment, or question how social context may influence our daily lives.” Artists in the show will include Patricia Sullivan, Anne Stagg, Liz Parsons and Nick Squadere. Pictured is [...]
  • Titus Andronicus

        Update: pay no attention to this one either. New Jersey lit-punks Titus Andronicus were regulars back in the glory days of Valentine’s Music Hall and Beer Joint—er, last year. So they should feel right at home dropping by the Low Beat for the first time. After a few years of regular lineup changes, [...]

    Widowspeak

      They’re calling this one a “mini-festival of dreampop.” Headlining will be Brooklyn duo Widowspeak, whose hazy, guitar-driven rock has been described as “somewhere in between Mazzy Star and Cris Isaak,” which isn’t as random as it seems, given that they cover “Wicked Game” in its tremolo-drenched glory. Things will get festy thanks to openers [...]

    Matt Nathanson

        UPDATE: pay no attention to this preview. It is in error.   Let’s face it, there is no single “mainstream” anymore to talk about independent artists breaking into. The closest thing to really “making it” these days, is getting a track picked up by a commercial or TV show. Scrubs, One Tree Hill, [...]

    Stephane Wrembel

        He’s been called the second-coming of Django Reinhardt. He’s a master of Gypsy jazz guitar, born in Paris and educated at Berklee College of Music. With six albums to his name, as well as the instructional book Getting into Gypsy Jazz Guitar, Stephane Wrembel really got his break in 2011 when Woody Allen [...]

    Playful

      The medium is the message in Playful, an exhibit now on view at Carrie Haddad Gallery in Hudson. Phyllis Palmer will be showing her fresco-secco paintings on plaster, which are “reminiscent of the still visible frescos which adorned the houses of Pompeii,” with humor added; Stephen Walling will show his wooden wall sculptures; and [...]

    Pretty Much the Best Comedy Show

      You can’t accuse the folks behind the new comedy series at Proctors of being shy. This Wednesday night will see the debut of Pretty Much the Best Comedy Show, a monthly series of comedy evenings in the Underground at Proctors performance space. The Underground will be set up with cabaret-style seating, complete with a [...]

    Mötley Crüe, Alice Cooper

      In advance of his band’s All Bad Things Must End Farewell Tour, Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee told USA Today, “It excites me that nobody will be able to say, ‘look at those old guys . . . they should have tapped out years ago.’” Well . . . Let’s just give the glam-rock [...]

    Stephen Waarts

      The award-winning, young—just look at him—violinist Stephen Waarts will perform in recital this Saturday night at the Sembrich in Bolton Landing. Accompanied by pianist Amy Yang, Waarts will perform music of Mozart (Sonata No. 21 in E-minor), Wagner, Beethoven, Ravel (Sonata in G) and Bartók (Sonata for Solo Violin, a notoriously difficult piece)—a kind [...]

    Zac Brown Band

      If there’s anything the rednecks and the hippies can agree on, it’s the Zac Brown Band. The Georgia-based country stars are Bonnaroo veterans and have a bevy of CMT, CMA and Grammy awards to their name. They’ve collaborated with both Alan Jackson and the String Cheese Incident. Is this a portent of the impending [...]
