Yes, the sign is up. Can the music be far behind?

Howe Glassman is still keeping Valentine’s Music Hall alive – tonight is the final date of the month-long Thursday night residency of Magnetic Eye Recording featuring the Fire Trail, Francis Graves, Emma Ate the Lion and lastdayshining, while Friday’s (January 31) slate features Hill Haints, Eternal Crimes and the captivating Shana Falana.

But it looks as though he’s getting ever closer and closer to opening the doors of his brand new nightspot/music venue, the Low Beat on Albany’s Central Avenue. Let the countdown begin…

Buddy Holly @ Good Shepherd Lutheran Church

This sign was spotted last week in front of the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Loudonville, and we felt that it deserved a caption. Care to weigh in?

The truth is, the church is hosting a Buddy Holly tribute show at 7:30pm on Friday (October 11) featuring Todd Meredith – who also played Buddy Holly at Proctors two weeks ago in the stage musical “Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story” – and his band, the Rave-Ons. Tickets are $20.
