Here are a few of the new shows added to the Nippertown concert calendar this week:
Revolution Hall in Troy wins the best announcement of the week award with Dave Alvin & the Guilty Women for Friday, July 17. Also coming up on Friday, September 18 will be Assembly of Dust.
By now, you’re likely aware that Coldplay is making good on their postponed Saratoga Springs show with a new SPAC date – Monday, July 27. Even better news is that Elbow will be the opener instead of Pete Yorn. (Nothing against Yorn, but Elbow is much preferred, thank you.) And – whoa! – the British roots-rollickin’ family band Kitty, Daisy & Lewis are on the bill as well!
Also new at SPAC is the Allman Brothers Band/Doobie Brothers double bill on Tuesday, August 18, with tix going on sale at 10am Friday, June 5.
The Colony Cafe in Woodstock welcomes Maria Muldaur & Her Bluesiana Band (Saturday, July 4), the Duhks (Sunday, August 2) and the legendary Ramblin’ Jack Elliott (Friday, August 21). Also down in Woodstock, Tom Rush rolls into the Bearsville Theater on Friday, July 31.
Iris DeMent returns to Club Helsinki in Great Barrington, Mass. on Sunday, July 19.
