Bucking the System

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

buckingthesystem

We don’t write about crowd-funding projects often because there seem to be so many of them lately. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but if you start writing about one, then that opens the door… Oh you get the idea.

But this is something of a special case, so we’d like to make you aware of a Kickstarter project for Bucking the System: The Lost Recording, 1999-2000, an album by Susan & the SurfTones, featuring bassist Buck Malen, a Greater Nippertown musical luminary who died last month.

Created as a tribute to Malen, the CD is a compilation of rare and unreleased Susan & the SurfTones’ recordings featuring Malen, including previously unreleased live recordings of the band at Positively 4th Street in Troy on June 6, 1999.

The project will be funded only if at least $880 is pledged by 6pm on Thursday, December 22. The first 44 pledges will cover costs, and the remainder will benefit the Albany Fund for Education Instrument Donation Program.

Flashback: Analog Fog II @ the Hollow on Sunday

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

Are you ready for a serious rock & roll trip down Memory Lane?

Well then, let’s jump in the Way-Back Machine, Sherman, and head over to the the Hollow Bar + Kitchen in Albany on Sunday (November 27). The event is the second annual Analog Fog, and if you were a Local 518 music fan back in the ’60s, you might experience a mind-bending flashback, as members of such fave ’60s rockers as the Bougalieu, Cathedral, Whitney Sunday, the Sundowners, the Sabres and more all take the stage.

Headlining Analog Fog II on Sunday will be the Chord-A-Roys, featuring Bernie Mulleda, Vinny Franconeri, Bob Sbuttoni, Jim Hyde, Dick Cronin and Steve Colfer.

Also slated to join in the flashback festivities are the Sabres, the Goats, Lisa Robilotto (one of the stand-outs of last year’s bash), the Hudson Avenue Blues Band, the Section and a drum battle with George Leary and Larry Scarano.

Doors open at 2pm, and music is slated to get underway at 3pm. Admission is $10 at the door.
