PART I: The Oneonta Theater, 3/25/11

I think I made a mistake.

I had decided early on to see the Felice Brothers again for the second time in about 2 months at the Oneonta Theater on Friday night. Later, when they announced a date at Club Helsinki for the following night, I debated, but I thought I wanted to see and experience them in a venue I had never been in, farther out of town, and in this neat old theater setting.

Mistake it was. Have we had enough of a very small minority of overly drunk – in this case, add rude and obnoxious – college students ruining a good time for the majority of others?

Oneonta Theatre

The concert schedule for the first half of 2011 at the Oneonta Theatre in Oneonta is running a little tribute-heavy for our tastes, but then again next up on the calendar are the Felice Brothers (Friday, March 25) – and there sure ain’t nothin’ wrong with that.

Tix for Hot Tuna (Saturday, April 30) and the Dark Star Orchestra (Saturday, May 7) are scheduled to go on sale to the public on Tuesday. And tickets for Ani DiFranco’s concert on June 7 are slated to go on sale on Friday. All other shows are currently on sale.

Jerry Jeff Walker’s Homecoming Concert

August 13th, 2010, 12:55 pm by Greg

Veteran singer-songwriter Jerry Jeff Walker is such a quintessential Texas troubadour that you might not realize that he doesn’t hail from Austin or Lubbock or Luckenbach.

No, Walker was actually born just down the road in Oneonta, and he’s headed back there on Saturday night (August 14) for a very special homecoming concert to celebrate the official grand re-opening of the Oneonta Theater.

The show is officially sold out, but this might be worth scrambling around to try to scare up a ticket.

Rivers Rutherford opens the show.
