Here are some of the upcoming Nippertown shows that have been announced this week:
Here’s a bit of an unlikely collaboration: Dobro master Jerry Douglas and his band with John Oates. Yes, that John Oates of Hall & Oates. It’s all happening at The Egg in Albany on Friday, December 11: the Jerry Douglas Band, John Oates and just for good measure, let’s throw in the sublime Maura O’Connell as well. Wow!They’ve been making annual December appearances at The Egg for quite a few years, but it looks like Hot Tuna won’t be scrambling up the holiday concert season at The Egg this year. But if you’re jonesin’ for a fix, you don’t have too far to go. Acoustic Hot Tuna will be pullin’ into the Bearsville Theater in Woodstock on Sunday, December 13. Other new shows on the Bearsville Theater schedule include Jerry Joseph and Danny Louis (Saturday, October 10), the Greencards (Saturday, October 17), Railroad Earth (Friday and Saturday, November 13-14) and Donna the Buffalo (Saturday, December 12). And just in time for Halloween, Skid Row skids into Northern Lights in Clifton Park on Friday, October 30. Pretty scary, eh? Other new shows headed into Northern Lights include John “Dr. Dirty” Valby (Friday, November 13), Metric (Saturday, November 21) and Thursday with Dillinger Escape Plan (Friday, December 18).
