Troy Savings Bank Music Hall Announces New Concert

Monday, April 4th, 2016

“Fly Trans-Love Airways… gets you there on time…”

Veteran singer-songwriter and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Donovan is slated to step into the spotlight at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall at 7:30pm on Wednesday, September 14 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the classic slab of ’60s psychedelia, Sunshine Superman.

The album not only features the title track (a No. 1 smash hit), but also the classic rock standard “Season of the Witch” and salutes to the Jefferson Airplane (“The Fat Angel”) and fab British folkie Bert Jansch (“Bert’s Blues”).

At the Music Hall, the audience will be treated to “Sunshine Superman,” and more of Donovan’s hits (including “Mellow Yellow,” “The Hurdy Gurdy Man,” “Jenifer Juniper”), as well as his legendary storytelling and other cult classic songs.

“I am delighted to be going on tour throughout North America, to thank all who have followed my work from the beginning – and all who have just discovered me now,” said Donovan in announcing the tour earlier today.

Priced at $36 & $42, tickets for Donovan’s concert at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall are scheduled to go on sale to the general public at 10am on Friday, April 15.

Thursday Throwback: Last Call at The Chateau

Thursday, March 31st, 2016

By Greg Haymes

MARCH 31: On this date in 1984, one of Albany’s all-time great live music venues called it quits. The Chateau – located somewhere in the vicinity of what is now the footprint of the Times Union Center – was once the epicenter of Greater Nippertown’s alt-rock music scene. And the nightclub – which hosted R.E.M. and a batch of other up-and-coming bands over the years – said farewell with one final rollickin’ bash featuring an all-star line-up of Local 518 scene-makers.

In truth, I don’t remember a whole lot about the night. I do, however, remember walking out of the club in the bright daylight hours of the next morning, wearing a wig of long black curls that made me look like Kevin McKrell’s doppelgänger and swigging from a bottle of some indeterminate fruit-flavored brandy. I staggered over to make an early morning television appearance for a telethon that was being broadcast from the Albany Hilton. Thankfully, social media and surveillance cameras were not omni-present back then, despite the fact that yes, indeed, it was 1984.

Fortunately, I had just been hired as a writer at Metroland, and the Chateau’s farewell was the lead item in the debut column, “Sarge Blotto’s Rockin’ Roll Call.” Here’s what I wrote back then:
