Another One Bites the Dust…

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

We are sad to report that the uptown Emack & Bolio’s – that’s the one in Guilderland – has shuttered its doors. The ice cream shop also featured live acoustic music several nights a week.

That’s the bad news…

The good news is that the downtown Emack & Bolio’s – that’s the one of Delaware Avenue in Albany – is still open and still featuring live music at 7pm every Friday and Saturday.

Among the upcoming shows on the schedule are 2Late on Saturday; Courtney Blackwell & John Rice on Saturday, November 6; 3 Quarter North on Saturday, November 13; and Al Goldberg on Saturday, November 20.

Albany’s Emack & Bolio’s also presents a weekly open mic night at 7pm on Tuesdays, hosted by Emerald Dawn.

BAND AFFILIATION: Fairview Avenue
INSTRUMENT: Mandolin

But I think around that same time I got Pearl Jam’s “Ten” on cassette for a birthday present (circa fourth grade). Actually, most of my early tapes were probably gifts. One that I really wore out was the “Forrest Gump” soundtrack. That had some great stuff on it – Hendrix, Randy Newman, Jefferson Airplane, “Freebird!”
