Sirsy – the dynamic pop-rock duo of Melanie Krahmer and Rich Libutti – wrapped up another fine season of free summer concerts at Wiswall Park in Ballston Spa last month.
The duo embarks on a month-long east coast tour kicking off at the Bitter End in NYC on Thursday (September 24), and continuing down the coast to Florida. But they’ll be back in town in time for a free Halloween concert at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Troy at 9:30 on Saturday, October 31.
And in the case of Sirsy, it only takes two to knock out a rollicking set of alt-pop-rock, too, as drummer-vocalist Melanie Krahmer and guitarist Rich Libutti proved once again during a free concert last month in Scotia’s Freedom Park.
“Hey, that can’t be Sirsy! There’s too many people on stage.”
Yes, fans could be forgiven for being more than a little confused at the recent Putnam Den show in Saratoga Springs. The popular Local 518 alt-pop-rock duo of Melanie Krahmer and Rich Libutti expanded to a quartet with the one-night-only addition of bassist-vocalist Margo Macero and keyboardist-vocalist Benjamin Zoleski.
Nippertown contributor and our official 2013 Man On the Scene UberFan, Timothy Reidy continued the frantic pace of his Local 518 music scene coverage last month with an impressive triple-header in Troy on Friday, January 17, including stops at the Irish Ale Pub to see Molly Durnin and the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que for Mirk, as well as the dynamic pop-rock duo Sirsy at Brown’s Brewing Co.
2013 was a big breakthrough year for the Nippertown pop duo Sirsy. Melanie Krahmer and Rich Libutti released their national album debut, Coming Into Frame, produced by Grammy-winners Paul Kolderie and Sean Slade, who have worked with Radiohead, Hole and the Pixies.
Pop duo Sirsy celebrated the release of their breakthrough album Coming Into Frame earlier this year, and the dynamic duo of Melanie Krahmer and Rich Libutti aren’t wasting any time in following it up. Funzalo Records is releasing a new Sirsy EP, Goner and Other Sordid Delights, on Tuesday (December 3).
The disc features “Goner,” a brand new, previously unreleased studio recording, as well as a batch of live recordings culled from the duo’s coast-to-coast tours. “Crazy” and “Cannonball” were recorded in Seattle; “Gold” was recorded in Tucson; and the closing three selections – “Lionheart,” “Lots of Love” and “Killer” were recorded right here in the Local 518 as live acoustic tunes at Mike Guzzo’s CRUMBS Cafe Studio.
In support of their excellent new album Coming Into Frame, veteran pop duo Sirsy – featuring Melanie Krahmer and Rich Libutti – rolled into Trick Shot Billiards & Sports Pub in Clifton Park earlier this month.
