Weekend Roundup

Just a few years ago, it seemed as though most of Nippertown simply slipped into hibernation during January. Oh, you could find a show or two worth checking out here and there throughout the month, but most of your live music venues looked pretty much like ghost towns.

Not anymore.

    Two quick notes: The Brian Kaplan Band has cancelled for Friday @ Savannah’s so at the moment it’s just Juice Junkees and Psychobilly. Juice Junkees are also playing Saturday night @ The Troy Bar on Second Ave in Troy. Pissed ’cause I’m gonna miss Ike and Ray…never seen them together before!
