    Restoration Festival

      In keeping with the robust tradition of daily newspapers arriving to a cultural trend story in time to break the news to everyone’s grandparents, the TU recently declared Troy the new Brooklyn. Which is to say, it’s a place where young people are doing stuff, and probably drinking kombucha. Your grandpa might not understand [...]

    Friend of a Friend

      The new group exhibit at Chatham’s Thompson Giroux Gallery, Friend of a Friend, works from the premise that the word “friend” has been “stretched almost to the breaking point over the past 10 years—coveted currency in a public popularity contest that never ends.” (Sounds like someone else is unthrilled with Facebook, too.) So, the [...]

    Super Soul Fest featuring Kurtis Blow

      While classic-rock radio continues to cycle the same 40 songs through our cultural consciousness, hip-hop has never really established a mainstream channel to preserve the genre’s legacy. That’s why shows like this are so important. In 1980, Kurtis Blow released “The Breaks” on his self-titled debut. On the heels of Sugar Hill Gang’s “Rapper’s [...]

    Simone Dinnerstein

      Celebrated pianist Simone Dinnerstein will present a solo recital this Saturday night as part of the Windham Chamber Music Festival. The program will feature Robert Schumann’s Kinderszenen, Nico Muhly’s 2012 You Can’t Get There From Here, and two works by J.S. Bach (French Suite No. 5 and the Two-Part Inventions). When Dinnerstein performed the [...]

    Little Shop of Horrors

      “Feed me, Seymour.” You know things have taken a seriously demented turn when your prized plant calls you by name. That’s what happens in the Alan Menken-Howard Ashman musical favorite, however: The romance between schlubby Seymour (Jerred Hickey, right) and his sweetheart Audrey (Michelle Kittel, left) is threatened by a man-eating plant-thing (center). Hilarity—and [...]

    Miró Quartet

      The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center continues its debut season at the Spa Little Theater this week with a pair of concerts featuring the Miró Quartet. On Sunday at 3 PM, they will present the program Monumental Beethoven. While the beloved German composer tends toward the monumental, this program is special in the [...]

    Jackson Browne

      If we’ve been ambivalent about “solo acoustic tours” in other cases, it’s because, frankly, some artists can’t pull it off. They need a band, period. We have no such reservations about Jackson Browne, who’ll be doing the solo acoustic thing tonight at the Palace, alternating between guitar and piano. Browne was one of the [...]

    Zex

      Seeing and hearing Zex is like riding in a station wagon: nostalgic, loud and jolting. These Ottawa-bred rockers have stayed true to the roots of punk; from the spiked leather jackets and fishnets to the warrior-cry chorus lines, not much is diluted. The band recently released two separate 7-inches, “Wanderlust” and “Savage City,” each [...]

    Blackberry Smoke

      Don’t worry everyone, that’s not the cast of Duck Dynasty rolling into Clifton Park this week. It’s Blackberry Smoke. The Southern-rock group hailing from Atlanta are praised for bringing soul back into country, earning them opening gigs for the likes of Zac Brown Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Speaking of Lynyrd Skynyrd, gods of Southern [...]
