Now we can add Valentine’s Music Hall to the list of beloved Nippertown music venues that have entered into history. Sometime early on Sunday morning February 9, the door to Valentine’s was closed and locked for the last time – but not before the nightspot hosted a mighty farewell celebration featuring B3nson Family stalwarts and Valentine’s regulars Sgt. Dunbar & the Hobo Banned and the Parlor.

Five years ago, when Bob Dylan last graced the stage of the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, he was the headliner of the one-time-only Saratoga Music Festival that featured a cavalcade of Americana acts, including the likes of Levon Helm, Gillian Welch, Steve Earle, the Swell Season and Raul Malo.

Last week, Dylan returned to SPAC as the top-bill on the touring Americanarama Festival of Music – which also featured Wilco, My Morning Jacket and Ryan Bingham – and at the end of the night I was left with the same thought that I had back in 2008 – Dylan’s performance was disappointingly anti-climactic.

Beware! The Other Head of Science

It was Sgt. Dunbar & the Hobo Banned’s get-out-of-town send-off concert at Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany earlier this month, as the band ramped up for their national tour. (They’re in Austin this weekend for the big SXSW fest.) The Valentine’s performance also doubled as a CD release party for their new album, “Twelve Horse Riding Songs.”

Laissez les bon temps rouler!

The Mardi Gras season has come and gone for another year, and Nippertown’s own Captain Squeeze & the Zydeco Moshers hosted the annual party-hearty Fat Tuesday celebration in downtown Albany at the Bayou Cafe. Accordion squeeze-master Greg “Captain Speck” Speck led the band through selections from the band’s latest album, “Fine People Everywhere,” as well as plenty of other swamp-soaked bayou blues that kept revelers on the dance floor all night long.
