The Three-Dollar Thursday at the Low Beat is one of Nippertown’s best musical bangs for your bucks. Three bands for just $3 – in this case, it was Slowshine, Mod Fiction and garage-rockin’ gurus the Mysteios, led by Tambourine Girl.

NAME: Kevin Gadani
INSTRUMENT: Guitarist/Singer/Song Writer

1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … If memory serves me correct, I think I bought Nirvana’s “Nevermind” and “Bleach” on cassette on the same day back around ’92-’93 with some allowance money. Before that I would just tape songs off the radio.

2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … The first major act I remember seeing live was Deep Purple at SPAC, but I’d definitely been to some forgettable local punk shows before that.

3. THE FIRST MUSICAL INSTRUMENT I EVER OWNED OR PLAYED WAS … I played the baritone in middle school but quickly lost interest when I picked up guitar playing around seventh grade.

4. THE FIRST SONG THAT I EVER PERFORMED IN PUBLIC WAS … Hmmm, probably some Beatles or Bob Dylan tune at an open mic.

5. THE FIRST BAND I WAS EVER IN WAS … Well, the first band I was in that made it out of the garage or basement was the Wild Mountain Underground. We recorded a few tunes and played a few gigs, but members changed quite often, so the band morphed into other names and disbanded after a couple years.

In support of their recently released album “Come Back Down,” Kevin Gadani straps on his guitar to lead the alt-rock trio Mod Fiction into Pauly’s Hotel in Albany on Saturday (February 9). Motorhome is scheduled to open the show at 9pm. Admission is $5.
