Peanut butter and chocolate.
Abbott and Costello.
Guns and Roses.
We love it when two things come together to form something even better. And there’s not much more that we like here at Nippertown than art and music.
So we got pretty excited when we heard about “heARTS aligned,” an interactive music-art performance that’s slated to take place at 7:30pm Saturday, June 20 at the Bread & Jam Cafe in Cohoes.
On the music end of the equation are Matt Durfee and Matthew Loiacono, while Ben Suhr and Jason Antonelli supply the visual art input for the evening. Man about town Matt MacHaffie will serve as emcee/ringmaster/referee.
We’re not 100% certain what’s going to happen. But, hey, that’s OK; we like to be surprised. Anyway, here’s how Mr. Loiacono describes the goings-on:
“This may be one of the coolest shows I’ve ever been asked to be a part of! Check it out – Matt Durfee and I will sit on stage, and audience members will pick original pieces of art from a hat. Each piece of art (designed by Jason and Ben) will correspond to one of Matt or my songs. Thus, a completely unique experience that is combining art and music!”
