Yes, we love summer in Nippertown when free concerts pop up in seemingly every park for miles around.

But we also love the fall, when colleges are back in session bringing us concerts like the recent Avi Buffalo performance at UAlbany and the upcoming show by Janelle Monae at Skidmore.

That’s right, in support of new album, “The ArchAndroid,” the mega-talented sci-fi soulster will make her Nippertown debut at 8pm on Friday, October 1 at Skidmore College’s Sports and Recreation Center in Saratoga Springs.

Eli “Paperboy” Reed opens the show.
