Real Good for Free: Central Avenue Farmers Market

Thursday, August 13th, 2009

There’s nothing that goes better with organic food shopping than a little bit of acoustic music.

The Central Avenue Farmers Market is located in the parking lot of The Linda, so that might explain why the quality of musical entertainment is usually a little better there than at many other farmers markets all across Nippertown.

On Saturday mornings, the market opens at 9am and runs through 1pm, while the musicians usually perform from about 10am-12noon.

Here’s the slate of performers for the rest of August:

August 15: Lyl Harper
August 22: Kim and Reggie Harris
August 29: Todd Nelson

Moe. Better News

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

Jam band faves and one-time Nippertown locals moe. are headed back to their former hometown for one wailin’ Halloween party. Yes, the band that used to play at Bogie’s all the time is returning to Albany, but this time they’re playing at the Washington Avenue Armory.

On Halloween night – Saturday, October 31.

This, as they say, is gonna be one wild night.

Of course, if you can’t wait til then, the boys are also hosting their tenth annual moe.down Festival at the Snow Ridge Ski Area in Turin, NY on Labor Day weekend, Friday-Sunday, September 4-6.

And, as usual, it’s a wildly eclectic, genre-busting fest featuring Cake, Umphrey’s McGee, Method Man & Redman, Ani DiFranco, Matthew Sweet, Sam Bush, the New Mastersounds, the reunion of Ominous Seapods, the Heavy Pets, Okemah, the Nate Wilson Group, the Family Groove Company, Lynch, My Dear Disco and the London Souls.

And oh yeah, moe. will be playing, too. A lot.
