Kingston isn’t all that far away, not for a real music fan. It’s just a short jaunt down Thruway from Nippertown, and the city’s two main concert halls – the Ulster Performing Arts Center and the Bardavon 1869 Opera House House – are hosting quite a few excellent concerts this season.
Sure, some of the acts – Ben Folds and Lyle Lovett, for instance – will also be coming to Albany for shows at The Egg. But it’s also looking like Kingston is as close as some of ’em – the Black Crowes and Lucinda Williams – might be getting this time around.
Anyway, we just thought you might want to know what’s happening in Kingston. So here are the schedules. Gas it up and go.
