If you’re looking for a theme for Nippertown’s spring arts season, the words “Jersey Boys” would seem to fit the bill just fine.

Jersey’s fave alt-rock combo Titus Andronicus roared into Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany on Saturday (March 3) night, wrapping up UAlbany radio station WCDB-FM’s wailin’ two-day 34th Anniversary Music Festival.

And next month, Jersey’s favorite musical son Bruce Springsteen leads his reconstituted E Street Band into the Times Union Center in Albany for what is certainly the hottest spring concert ticket in town.

But in all honesty, Bruce is gonna have to bring his A game to town to top the knock-out production of “Jersey Boys” that’s playing at Proctors in Schenectady through Sunday, March 18.
