    Great Rides! Film Festival

      Every summer, PS 21 in Chatham hosts a wide-ranging film series, screening everything from gritty indie documentaries to glossy Hollywood musicals. That’s true this summer, too, but this week they’re having a festival within a festival with Great Rides, a six-film series of movies set on and about trains. The fun begins Tuesday (July […]

    Brad Paisley

      Brad Paisley is still touring no the strength of his most recent album, 2014’s Moonshine in the Trunk, which became the singer’s eighth Billboard No. 1 country album last September. But you probably knew that already. Paisley wants everyone to have a good time at his concerts—a full bar has been part of his […]

    Interpol

      Interpol got their start in the NYC indie scene in the late ’90s at Luna Lounge, playing with bands like the Strokes and the National, and have been called “a paragon of Americana post-punk alt-rock.” Their most recent album represents a return to the era of their critically acclaimed and commercially popular 2002 debut […]

    Ajkun Ballet Theatre

      If you live in Albany’s Center Square neighborhood, there’s one thing you can count on: If it’s July and you bump into a group of tall, athletic, foreign-language speakers in practice clothes, the Ajkun Ballet Theatre are back in town. For decades, Ajkun Ballet Theatre have brought their grace and skill to the Egg […]
  • TINA PHAN/AMERICAN-STATESMAN. 10.06.13. Shuggie Otis performs at the Zilker Tent during the Austin City Limits Festival (ACL) on Sunday, October 6, 2013.

    Shuggie Otis

      L.A.’s Shuggie Otis released three critically acclaimed albums of blues, funk, and psychedelic soul in the early ’70s –all before he was 22. For the next 40 years, he didn’t release a single piece of new music. Son of rhythm & blues pioneer Johnny Otis, Shuggie began playing guitar at the age of 2 […]

    Heart

      If you’ve seen Heart in concert over the last decade, you’re left wondering one thing after the show: How could they possibly have been doing this for 40-plus years? They sound that fresh and that good. The Wilson sisters, singer Ann and guitarist Nancy, both rock as ferociously as ever. Doubt us? Wander the […]

    The Edgar Winter Band

      Seventies nostalgia is definitely not the only reason to see Edgar Winter onstage at Alive at Five, though “Frankenstein” and “Free Ride” are true classics, as is everything from his monster double-platinum They Only Come Out at Night release. Some other reasons are that the white-haired multi-instrumentalist and keyboardist extraordinaire is a genuine living […]

    West Side Story

      Romeo and Juliet set in New York City? How is that for a can’t-miss idea? It actually took a decade for Jerome Robbins’ idea to change into the Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim and Arthur Laurents musical that opened on Broadway in 1957. But it did become a great, decades-spanning crowd pleaser; and, in response […]
