    Souvenir

      There were a variety of ways a wealthy early-20th-century socialite could express her interest in music, from hosting salons to becoming a patron of the symphony or opera. Manhattan’s Florence Foster Jacobs was different: Despite all evidence to the contrary, Jenkins believed she was a great singer; and she bankrolled her own concerts to […]

    Ashu

      Although the saxophone is most closely associated today with jazz and rock & roll, inventor Adolphe Sax clearly had neither genre in mind when he patented the first saxophone design in Paris in the 1840s. Which brings us to Ashu (pictured) who is on a mission to bring the sax and classical music together; […]

    Justin Townes Earle

      Alt-country legend Steve Earle gave his son Justin a middle name in tribute to his own mentor, Townes Van Zandt. Although Steve Earle left Justin’s mother when he was 2, Justin eventually played in—and was kicked out of—his father’s band. Recently married and newly sober, Earle already has been hailed as a leading light […]

    The Bridge Jazz Festival

      This is an exciting idea. When music lovers around here think of jazz festivals, they think of summer; the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall and the Massry Center for the Arts have teamed up to bring us a two-night jazz fest to heat up this interminable February. On Friday (Feb. 27), the Music Hall […]

    On Animation and Workflow

      This screening Saturday night at EMPAC is part of a colloquium that brought together “small groups of artists, curators, visual effects specialists, engineers, and theorists to informally discuss ideas centered around the conditions of the long co-history of animation and workflow (the sequence of processes through which a piece of work passes from initiation […]

    Troy Night Out

      It’s a double celebration for this month’s Troy Night Out on Friday. TNO will honor Troy’s connection to the glass creations of Tiffany & Co.—Troy is home to some of the most beautiful surviving examples of Tiffany glass—and the 9th birthday of Troy Night Out itself. For example, you’ll be able to visit St. […]

    Two Cow Garage

      Two Cow Garage are an alt-country band from Ohio who have been compared with Dinosaur Jr. and Nirvana as well as the Jayhawks and Blue Rodeo. “Fierce and edgy,” these guys tour so tirelessly that they had to crowd-source funding to fix their van after it broke down late last year. They raised enough […]

    Silverstein

      Named for delightfully peculiar children’s author of Where the Sidewalk Ends, Silverstein will be headlining a delightfully punk rock night of emo, screamo, pop punk, hardcore and post-hardcore tonight at Upstate Concert Hall. Solid innovators in a typically temperamental genre, Silverstein have made seven studio albums since they got together in 2000 and will […]
