Win FREE TICKETS to Railbird at Valentine’s on Saturday!

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Sarah Pedinotti and her band Railbird have been on quite a roll during recent months…

Last November at Valentine’s Music Hall, Railbird celebrated the release of their latest EP Lucky, featuring guest vocals from Anti- recording artist Sean Rowe and Phantogram’s Sarah Barthel. Their single “Mirrors” has been remixed by School of Seven Bells. And Railbird also just finished up a busy week in L.A. supporting Rowe as his backing band – on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” on KCRW’s influential radio show “Morning Becomes Eclectic” and at the legendary nightclub, the Troubadour.

Originally formed in Saratoga Springs but now based in Brooklyn, Railbird plays something of a homecoming show at 9pm on Saturday (March 16) when they return to Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany. Opening the show for Railbird will be a showcase of artists on the Sub-Bomin Records label, including Kite Person (who released their debit EP Tonight We Run in December), Mitochi (who dropped his new track “Whatchu Talkin’ Bout Willis” just last week) and Rawhead (the project of Michael Okon, co-founder of Sub-Bombin Records).

Tickets for Saturday’s performance at Valentine’s are $5 in advance; $7 at the door.

Yeah, apparently, Saratoga really is the August place to be.

How else to explain three of Nippertown’s finest gathered together on the same stage on one night? Timothy Reidy headed to Putnam Den in Saratoga Springs to see Railbird, Matthew Carefully and Sgt. Dunbar & the Hobo Banned on Saturday, August 6. And he reported back with these snappy photos.

Last Friday night, Railbird was gearing up for their first national tour with a new album, a CD release party and tons of infectious enthusiasm from the band and its musical heart, Sarah Pedinotti.

Headlining the triple-bill at Saratoga Springs’ premier music nightclub, Railbird was the primary reason that the Putnam Den was nearly filled to capacity by time they took the stage. With a $6 entry fee, nothing happening in the region could even come close to matching the quality of the three bands for anywhere near that ticket price.

This time out, long-time fans noticed a reshuffling of the band’s personnel with Railbird’s original drummer Chris Carey taking over electric bass duties, while bassist James Gascoyne instead manned the electric guitar alongside the band’s premier guitarist Chris Kyle.

Occupying Railbird’s drum chair that night was Jeremy Gustin, the energetic drummer from the triple-bill’s opening band and tour-mates, the Rex Complex. And standing off to the far side of the stage was Phantagram’s lovely singer, Sarah Barthel, who provided back-up vocals and electronic synth-sounds to the band’s mix.

As we mentioned this morning in our Today’s Tips column, Railbird is a late-breaking addition to the bill at Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany tonight. They’ll be sharing the stage with Cloud Nothings, Scientific Maps and Better Pills.

As usual, the band has something a bit different up their collective sleeve. As drummer Chris Carey explains, “It’s a different line-up of our band with me on bass, and our producer Jeremy Gustin from NYC on the drums.”

And Sarah Pedinotti and the Saratoga Springs-based band will also be filming tonight at Valentine’s for Railbird’s upcoming music video – which, of course, you can be a part of simply by showing up tonight.

The Railbirders suggest: “Wear bright colors and any kind of weird costume: i.e. wigs, masks, feathers, etc are highly encouraged. And of course, be ready to dance. Or spaz out…or just stand there, man. Just be free. Follow your heart.”

Last month, the venerable Eighth Step at Proctors tried something different when it launched the Indie 8th Step, a new series of concerts spotlighting adventurous independent rock bands.

The opening volley of the series featured a simply magnificent performance by Lost in the Trees (read our review). Opening the show was Philadelphia/NYC trio Cuddle Magic with a special guest appearance by Sarah Pedinotti of Railbird.

Wow! Was that great, or what?

I managed to log about six and a half hours at Rest Fest on Sunday, and the primary thought that kept running through my mind was, “Damn, I wish I’d been able to have been here on Saturday, too!”
