Guitar hero Gary Lucas – who has lent his fretboard fireworks to such musical mavericks as Captain Beefheart and Jeff Buckley – lands at Proctors in Schenectady at 7:30pm on Friday (November 13) to perform his own original solo guitar score to accompany a screening of Carl Dreyer’s legendary 1932 horror film “Vampyr.” Following the screening Lucas will play “Cinefantastque,” a solo concert featuring themes from the movies of Fellini, Hitchcock, Tati and other legendary film makers. Tickets are $15.
