    The Wizard of Oz

      Picture the days after Christmas: The kids are tethered to the new Xbox; the parents are planted in front of the TV watching sports; and everyone is constantly raiding the fridge for increasingly gross leftovers. It’s not a pretty picture, is it? Get everyone out of the house and follow the Yellow Brick Road [...]

    Guy Davis

      Son of the late actors Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis, Guy Davis initially followed in his parents’ footsteps with successful turns in film, TV and theater, but his interest in and love of music always overlapped his acting career, and he eventually turned to music more exclusively.

        Better Pills (left) describe their sound as “jittery punk” and “bipolar dance music.” While they perform only a few times a year (and only with bands that they really like), they have captured a loyal and diverse following here in the Capital Region. This Friday they will be playing at the Low Beat [...]

    Big Eyes

      If you’re a baby boomer and grew up in the 1950s and ’60s, you’ve seen the art of Margaret Keane. Her paintings of sad-faced children with really big eyes were a popular phenomenon. It wasn’t until the 1970s, however, that the works were properly credited to her; originally, when they were mass-marketed as prints [...]
