MUSIC: Icy Moons of Jupiter @ Revolution Hall, Troy. The Free Tuesday concert series wraps up 2009 with a new band that puts a funky, experimental twist on the jam-band formula. Sugar Proof shares the bill. Doors open at 6pm. Free.
FILM/MUSIC: “Il Trovatore” @ Proctors, Schenectady. Class up your holiday week with Verdi’s classic opera broadcast from Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona. 2pm & 7:30pm. $25.
MUSIC: A Breath of Mercury @ Savannah’s, Albany. If opera’s not your thing, you might want to do a little headbanging, instead. And what better way to celebrate the arrival of Satan Claus than with a throbbing night of A Breath of Mercury and the P.O.W.E.R. (and probably some other band, too). 8pm. Free.
