From Bryan Thomas, February 4:

One for the bucket list: I did a WTF live interview with Mark Maron Friday night. He asked me if I was a comedian and I answered: “Not on purpose.” Then he walked away. Shorter than in my fantasies, but I’ll take it.


Song o’ the Week: Bryan Thomas’ “Last”

Last – Bryan Thomas from Bryan Thomas on Vimeo.

Super singer-songwriter Bryan Thomas kicks off our new year with a bang, as he serves up “Last,” a new tune from his upcoming video EP, Basement Live.

Thomas will also be making one of his all-too-rare live appearances this weekend. You can catch him at Putnam Den in Saratoga Springs at 9pm on Saturday (January 12), where he’ll be opening the show for Troy’s the Fresh Kicks and Providence-based Americana band Torn Shorts. Admission is FREE.

LISTEN: Sean Rowe’s hotly anticipated sophomore album for Anti- Records isn’t slated for official release until next Tuesday (August 28), but you can listen to “The Salesman and the Shark” in its entirety right now at National Public Radio.

WATCH: Yup, that’s Rowe collaborating with Railbird and Phantogram’s Sarah Barthel on Railbird’s new music video “Jump Ship.”

OK, it’s a cliche. I know it’s a cliche. And I pretty much just hate it when a concert reviewer says something like “Hearing them play (insert name of fave song here) was worth the price of admission all by itself.”

But this time I can’t help it because it’s true. So true…

I would have easily paid the price of admission – $15 at the door with a discount to advance tix buyers – to hear the Capital Region’s two finest singer-songwriters join forces for a song – pretty much any song.

And on Saturday night, Rosanne Raneri and Bryan Thomas did just that. But not before they each served up exquisite solo sets. Neither one of them performs in concert very often – which is a crying shame or downright criminal, depending on your point of view – but the intimate setting of the Steamer was the perfect setting for the sublime music of these two uber talents.

This is a rare, not-to-be-missed pairing of two of Nippertown’s most talented, yet most elusive musical artists.

On Saturday evening, super singer-songwriters Rosanne Raneri and Bryan Thomas – both veteran musicians with award-winning recordings to their credit – will step into the spotlight at the intimate Steamer No. 10 Theatre in Albany.

UAlbany’s college radio station WCDB (90.9FM) started broadcasting on March 1, 1978, cranking up “Born to Run” by New Jersey rock-poet laureate Bruce Springsteen. So it seems only natural that the WDBC folks would snag the next generation of New Jersey’s favorite sons, Titus Andronicus, to headline their anniversary bash this weekend.

Over the course of the past two decades, the Steamer No. 10 Theatre has become one of Albany’s prime destinations for children’s entertainment. But every once in a while the intimate little theater plays host to some fine grown-up entertainment, too.

In celebration of the theater’s 20th anniversary, guest producer Michael Eck is presenting a new Electic Performance Series at the theater, a slate of six exciting evening concerts aimed at adult audiences and featuring some of the area’s finest musicians both past and present. Among the upcoming performers are Hamell on Trial, Sean Rowe, the Star Spangled Washboard Band, Val Haynes & Todd Nelson, Rosanne Raneri, Bryan Thomas, Rosary Beard, Winterpills and Frank Jaklitsch.


LIVE: Discard Avant Garb @ Grand Street Community Arts, 9/10/11

Once again, Discard Avant Garb’s charity fundraising Recycled Fashion Show outdid itself.

Each year, we walk out after the show thinking, “Well, they won’t be able to top that next year.” And every year, they do just that.

It’s Nippertown’s hippest and most fun annual art party – at least we hope it’s annual again after taking a year off in 2010. While the party at Grand Street Community Arts in Albany went on for about three and a half hours, the fashion show itself lasted only 50 minutes. But what a wild and wonderful 50 minutes they were.

With Chris Harvey’s hot-green bamboo installation and an array of Dennis Herbert’s surreal box assemblages serving as a backdrop, the never-demure Mary Panza once again served as Emcee from Hell, detailing the recycled ingredients of each outfit and often chastising the models as they strutted their stuff upon the runway.
