Restoration Festival…
Restoration Funstival…

By whatever name you call it, the fifth annual fest returned to the Contemporary Artists Center at Woodside in Troy for the second consecutive year, and once again, it was a parade of fine Local 518 bands gracing the two stages with plenty of festive, adventurous and fun music…

Singer-songwriter and Troy native Sean Rowe has been playing a lot of house concerts lately, but he stepped out on a real stage – the Ernie Williams Stage at Cohoes’ Canal Square – last month for a knock-out free Friday evening show that offered a sneak peek at some of the tunes from his upcoming third album, Madman, due out next Tuesday (September 9). You don’t have to wait til then to hear the album, though. It’s currently streaming at NPR’s First Listen

Hey, you know, we kinda like Eddie Money, but we’re a little burned out on the guy…

His performance at the Empire State Plaza Convention Hall – moved indoors from the Plaza due to the weather forecast – earlier this month was his second time headlining the New York State Food Festival in just the past four years. And it was Money’s seventh (at least) annual summer tour stop in Nippertown…

Do we really need to hear “Two Tickets to Paradise” every summer?

Yes, every once in a long while, the Rockin’ On the River concert series veers off the path dedicated to tribute-bands-and-nothing-but-tribute-bands to showcase some of the Local 518′s finest – bands that actually play their own music.

That certainly was the case earlier this month when two of Nippertown’s hardest rockin’ trios – Super 400 and Wild Adriatic – teamed up for a dynamic double bill in the Troy’s Green Island Bridge parking lot earlier this month.

All Over Albany’s Rail, River, Hudson Tour

Get on the bus…

Story, photographs and video by Timothy Reidy

On a recent Saturday, a group of us went on a travel adventure. Last year, I had as similar day trip to Hudson, but this was better planned and had more going for it. For All Over Albany’s Rail, River, Hudson Tour, there were enough folks to pack both buses from Albany to the Rensselaer train station. The group was orderly packed in the train, too, and had a nice day to go south to Hudson.

LIVE: Bootsy Collins / Shaggy @ the Empire State Plaza, 6/18/14

With The Egg as a backdrop, it certainly looked as though the Mothership had indeed landed on the Empire State Plaza last Wednesday evening, as the electrifying starchild o’ funk Bootsy Collins and his crew led the crowd through classic Parliament-Funkadelic chants, from the opening “We love the funk, gotta have the funk” to the closing “It’s official, family approved, one nation under a groove.”
