    Elf: The Musical

      People can’t seem to get enough of Buddy the Elf. He was introduced by Will Farrell in the movie Elf, which has become a holiday classic alongside A Christmas Story and White Christmas; he was featured in a new animated TV special last week, voiced by The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons; and there’s [...]

    Albany Symphony Orchestra

      The Winter’s Tale is name the ASO have given to this weekend’s concerts in Troy; it’s also the name of the world-premiere cello concerto by Michael Torke that will be featured on that program, and with guest soloist Julie Albers (pictured). When Albers served as a last-minute replacement with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra [...]

    Nick Lowe’s Quality Holiday Revue

      One of Nick Lowe’s greatest fears, he told an interviewer as he was moving into his later years, was “sticking with what you did when you were famous. . . . I didn’t want to become one of those thinning-haired, jowly old geezers who still does the same shtick they did when they were [...]

    EQXmas Party with Robert DeLong

      It’s appropriate that Washington state native Robert DeLong is headlining this show, because WEQX was one of a handful of stations nationally that first played his 2013 breakthrough hit, “Global Concepts,” from the same-titled EP. DeLong released his first album last February, and followed up last month with a new EP. Wired has dubbed [...]

On Friday, the trio Songs to Amuse, which consists of Amy Prothro, Malcolm Kogut and B.A. Nilsson, will present The Longest Holiday. According to Nilsson, the trio will “try to [...]

    It’s a Wonderful Life

      This image of James Stewart captures his character, George Bailey, at the lowest moment of his life. It’s as perfect and terrifying image of despair as you’ll find in the history of cinema. Part of what makes Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life such affecting holiday entertainment are the emotional depths the protagonist plumbs [...]

      Sean Altman is the founder of the group Rockapella, who had their heyday on the Emmy-winning PBS series Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? (which was based on a video game inspired by the poor geography skills of American kids . . . but we’re getting sidetracked here). And never mind kids anyway, [...]

    Darren Lyons Group

      Drummer-percussionist Darren Lyons began his training as a preschooler in Rochester and went on to perform in his high school jazz ensemble there. The Darren Lyons Group, now in their 18th year, began performing at NYC’s Knitting Factory in 1996; Lyons has since played numerous notable clubs and festivals around the world, and has [...]

      Matisyahu is the Hebrew stage name of Matthew Paul Miller, but though the plaintive-voiced hip-hopper incorporates Orthodox Jewish lyric themes into his reggae-heavy songwriting, his appeal is universal, which is probably why he was the opening act for Sting in 2006, following a guest spot with Trey Anastasio at Bonnaroo. The former Phish-head combines [...]
