As you may recall, Halestorm was one of the bands that got the ax when Albany’s Washington Avenue Armory put a ban on all upcoming concerts after the melee at the Migos show back in March.

Fortunately, the promoters were able to re-locate the show to the Palace Theatre, and Lzzy Hale got a chance to strut her stuff with the boys after all.

but it was the Pretty Reckless – led by singer/actress Taylor Momsen – who made the most of the night. Yes, little “Jenny Humphrey” has gone from “Gossip Girl” to Gothy Girl, and while co-star Blake Lively got Ryan Reynolds, Momsen got one helluva band.

Led by frontman Travis Gray, Wild Adriatic hosted a wild CD release party for their new EP, Never Enough, last month at Vapor in Saratoga Springs. Sharing the stage for the Saratoga rock trio’s big bash was Vermont’s Gang of Thieves.

It was a double-barreled blast of rock ‘n’ roll fun, and it was free, too, thanks to the folks at WEQX-FM.

The annual Albany Jazz Appreciation Month Celebration took place last month at the Colonie Elks Lodge in Latham, and it was a mighty impressive exhibition of the deep well of Nippertown’s jazz talent, as well as the diversity of music that falls under the broad umbrella of “jazz.”

The day-long jazz extravaganza featured big band music by the UAlbany Jazz Ensemble under the direction of David Holsey, the exotic world-music of Elizabeth Woodbury Kasius & Heard, the Andrews Sisters-like, swinging vocal harmonies of String of Pearls, the traditional New Orleans sound of the Pearl River Trio (augmented for the day by washboardist Jerry Gordon) and the jazz violin of the Teresa Broadwell Quintet.

To wrap up their 12th season, the Saint Rose Camerata had something a little different up their collective sleeve – a collaboration with dancer-choreographer Claire Jacob-Zysman and her dancers, Sarah Erano, Abby Todd and Melissa George. Certainly the College of Saint Rose’s Massry Center for the Arts, isn’t the best theater around Nippertown for presenting dance, but it worked quite nicely in this case.

After zipping up the Thruway from their Kingston hometown, guitarist-vocalist Shana Falana and drummer Mike Amari landed at the Low Beat in Albany to kick off their coast-to-coast tour and celebrate the release of their sparkling new collaborative album, Set Your Lightning Fire Free. And not surprisingly, the new partnership put considerably more muscle into Falana’s always mesmerizing dream-pop sound, at once tribal and droning.
