This just might be the single busiest weekend of the year, so we really don’t want to hear a single peep out of anyone complaining that there’s nothing to do in Nippertown. Seriously.
Here are just a few suggestions:
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 17
Lecture and opening reception for Jennifer Dalton‘s “Is It Just Me?” @ the Teaching Gallery @ Hudson Valley Community College, Troy (FREE)
“Capital Region’s Got Talent” @ Revolution Hall, Troy (FREE) Colleen Pratt & Friends @ the Van Dyck, Schenectady (FREE) 3rd Thursday arts walk @ various locations in Pittsfield, Mass. (FREE) Los Lobos with Jonah Smith @ the Calvin Theater, Northampton, Mass.
Discussion with Annea Lockwood, Margaret Cogswell and Ian Berry @ the Tang Museum, Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs (FREE)
You’ve seen his photographs in Metroland.
You’ve seen his photographs in the Times Union.
You’ve seen his photographs on gallery walls.
Yes, Joe Putrock‘s photographs sometimes seem to be everywhere.
And now you can also see them at Carrie Haddad Photographs in Hudson. The exhibit – which also features the work of Melinda McDaniel and Arnold Kastenbaum – opens today and will remain on view through Sunday, October 11.
The opening reception for the show takes place from 6-8pm Saturday, September 5, and Putrock has decided to make a whole night of it.
Following the reception at the gallery, Putrock will dash across Warren Street to Jason’s Upstairs Bar, where he’ll slip behind the drums to play with his band, the Charlie Watts Riots.
That’s right, a little bit of intimate, small-scale photography and a little bit of crank-it-up, blast-it-out rock & roll. Joe Putrock, you’re the Mayor of Warren Street – at least for a night.
Sadcore king Mark Eitzel is one of my very favorite singers, but I’ve only been fortunate enough to see him in concert a couple of times – with American Music Club at QE2 and with Tuatara at the Iron Horse Music Hall.
Now he’s heading out on a very intimate tour that he’s dubbed “Mark Eitzel Performs American Music Club.” He’ll be accompanied by AMC alum Marc Capelle on the piano – and that’s it.
As Eitzel declares on his blog, “It’s kind of a Tony Bennett thing, I guess. But it gives me the chance to do these songs – and really sing them – without the distraction of a guitar.”
Even better, the tour is headed to Nippertown. Eitzel makes a stop at Jason’s Upstairs Bar in Hudson at 8pm on Sunday, July 19, as well as The Linda in Albany at 8pm Wednesday, July 22.
