By now, you should already know about the free monthly CRUMBS Nite Out sessions at The Linda in Albany. The evenings start out with a musician or band playing for an hour with host Howe Glassman jumping onstage with them to conduct short interview segments between songs.
Then there’s a brief intermission to mingle and network with the local music scenemakers, then on to a panel discussion about some aspect of the Capital Region’s music scene, conducted by entertainment lawyers Paul Rapp and Paul Czech.
Matthew Loiacono was scheduled to perform on Thursday (October 22), he is now otherwise engaged, so the fine funk-bomb band Jocamo will be stepping in to keep the music in the pocket. Jocamo has just released their new album, “The New Funk Order,” and you can go here to read our review.
Thursday’s panel discussion concerns local radio stations and how to get your music played on the air. Panelists will include Dave Michaels (WEXT), Jason Irwin (WEQX), Howe Glassman (WAMC) and Russell Jones (WRPI). Paul Rapp is otherwise engaged – perhaps he’s hanging out somewhere with Loiacono? – so I’ll be stepping in to help out Paul Czech as co-moderator.
Music gets underway at 7pm, and admission is free.
