    Slick Rick

      We did a triple take when we first saw this announced: Slick Rick—the Slick Rick—is coming to Putnam Den on Friday. In case you have not been properly educated or were raised in a barnyard setting, Slick Rick is a hip-hop legend who came along in the late 1980s and turned the genre upside [...]

    Carousel Celebration

      The carousel at the New York State Museum was built by the Herschell-Spillman Company of North Tonawanda (now a Buffalo suburb) sometime between 1912 and 1916. This Saturday, then, is as good a time as any to celebrate its centennial, which the Museum will do with an afternoon of family fun and a lecture [...]

    A Christmas Carol

      As you will see when you browse through this week’s calendar listings, we are about to be awash in wonderful theatrical productions of The Nutcracker, It’s a Wonderful Life and Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. And the more the merrier, we say. Give the people what they want. On Monday, Nebraska Theatre Caravan’s celebrated—for its [...]
  • Sixties Rock Experience

      This three-hour musical journey back to the grooviest decade doesn’t merely aim to re-create the music of such legends as Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Mick Jagger, Ian Anderson and more; the performers—pretty much all from the Capital Region—do their best to look and dress like the real deal, to give audiences a taste of [...]

    Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band

      What can we tell you about Bob Seger that you don’t already know (besides that that long mane of hair isn’t black–or long–anymore)? Born in 1945 and raised in the Detroit area, Seger broke into the big time in the mid-1970s with singles like “Night Moves,” “Mainstreet,” “Still the Same,” “Hollywood Nights,” “We’ve Got [...]

    Ghost Town: The Hebron Story

      Wednesday (Dec. 3) will see the premiere of local filmmaker Ellie Bernstein’s documentary Ghost Town: The Hebron Story. Bernstein has made many trips to Israel and the West Bank over the years, and here tells the story of Hebron in an attempt to “show the result of the more than 40-year Israeli military occupation [...]

    Trans-Siberian Orchestra

      It’s really the holiday season now, and we know this because the Trans-Siberian Orchestra are returning to the Times Union Center to make it snow for two shows this Sunday. This all-new extravaganza is the concert premiere of their classic album The Christmas Attic, which is their only magnum opus they’ve never performed live. [...]

    Great Russian Nutcracker

      The Moscow Ballet returns to the Palace this weekend with their colorful Great Russian Nutcracker, opening what we in the culture-watching biz like to call “Nutcracker season.” Beautiful costumes and scenery, virtuoso dancers and that great Tchaikovsky score make for classic holiday entertainment. The critic for the Cleveland Plain Dealer wrote, “What exists in [...]

The program will feature J.S. Bach’s Four Chorale Preludes, Lee Hoiby’s Sextet for Wind Quintet [...]

    Black Veil Brides

      Black Veil Brides formed in 2006 in Cincinnati, but their make-up, black-studded wardrobe and long hair are straight out of the ’80s. Inspired by glam-metal bands Kiss and Motley Crue, the Brides have put our four studio albums, which have earned them numerous awards and nominations by publications such as Alternative Press and Revolver.
