Here are some of the newly announced shows on the horizon for the Nippertown club and concert scene:
In support of his latest album, “Draw the Line,” British singer-songwriter David Gray steps into the spotlight at The Egg in Albany on Monday, April 5. Meanwhile, it looks like Shawn Colvin fans are going to have to wait a bit longer. Her concert at The Egg was slated for Friday, March 19, but it’s been postponed a month to Saturday, April 17.
New additions to the concert calendar at The Linda in Albany include Woodstock’s own Professor Louie & the Crowmatix on Saturday, February 13 and singer-songwriter Melissa Ferrick back for her third appearance at The Linda on Sunday, February 21.
At Revolution Hall in Troy, new additions for early 2010 include the U2 tribute band Unforgettable Fire on Saturday, January 23 and Dr. Dog on Wednesday, January 27 with – coincidentally? – the Growlers opening the show. Also, all three of the holiday shows by the McKrells that were scheduled at Rev Hall for Saturday, December 19 have been cancelled.
Proctors in Schenectady is gearing up for St. Patrick’s Day with the new addition of Celtic Woman to its concert calendar. The quintet of Irish vocalists will head into the Electric City for a two-night stand on Wednesday and Thursday, March 3 & 4. Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10am on Monday (December 14). Also new on Proctors’ schedule is 23-year-old jazz pianist (and Schenectady native) Dominic Fallacaro, who will be celebrating the release of his new CD, “collected,” with a homecoming concert on Saturday, January 16.
The Bearsville Theater in Woodstock kicks off the new year with a concert by Grace Potter & the Nocturnals on Friday, January 8, with Blues & Lasers opening the show. Irish band Hothouse Flowers also appear to be on tap for Friday, March 5.
