Let’s see now…
There’s lots of great music.
It helps raise money for the American Cancer Society.
And there’s ice cream involved.
OK, count us in.
On Saturday (October 24) both Nippertown locations of Emack and Bolio’s (366 Delaware Ave., Albany and Town Center Plaza, 1704 Western Ave., Guilderland) are hosting “Ice Cream that Rocks,” an all-day benefit show for the American Cancer Society.
Nearly two dozen musical acts will be participating in the event, which begins at 12noon and continues straight through til at least 10pm.
Here an interesting and educational family outing: the Saratoga Native American Festival is being presented at Saratoga Spa state park this Saturday and Sunday featuring an array of musicians, drummers, artisans, dancers and especially storytellers. Here’s the activities schedule.
Tickets are $10 Adults, $7 Seniors and $5 Children under 12 (children under 5 are free and are available online.
Sadcore king Mark Eitzel is one of my very favorite singers, but I’ve only been fortunate enough to see him in concert a couple of times – with American Music Club at QE2 and with Tuatara at the Iron Horse Music Hall.
Now he’s heading out on a very intimate tour that he’s dubbed “Mark Eitzel Performs American Music Club.” He’ll be accompanied by AMC alum Marc Capelle on the piano – and that’s it.
As Eitzel declares on his blog, “It’s kind of a Tony Bennett thing, I guess. But it gives me the chance to do these songs – and really sing them – without the distraction of a guitar.”
Even better, the tour is headed to Nippertown. Eitzel makes a stop at Jason’s Upstairs Bar in Hudson at 8pm on Sunday, July 19, as well as The Linda in Albany at 8pm Wednesday, July 22.
