LIVE: Kate Pierson @ BSP Lounge, 2/24/15

Kate Pierson made her recording debut back in 1978 on the B-52s’ debut indie single of “Rock Lobster.” The fun-loving band has racked up a number of hits since those new-wave days, but they’ve only recorded one album – 2008′s Funplex – in more than two decades. Which makes it something of a surprise that Pierson hasn’t gone the solo route until now.

Finally last month, Pierson released her long-overdue debut solo album, Guitars and Microphones, which features several songs co-written with publicity-shy “it” girl, Sia. And in support of her new disc, she hit the road for tour stops that included the City Winery in NYC (joined by Deborah Harry), “Late Night With Seth Meyers” and a sold-out stop at Kingston’s BSP Lounge, where Shokan-based experimental acoustic duo Skeye opened the show.

LIVE: FAQ Circus’ “Running” @ Gasholder Building, 2/21/15

FAQ Circus

Photographs by Timothy Reidy

Have you ever imagined starting a new life? FAQ Circus’ production of “Running” was an exploration into what it means to leave behind the familiar and explore the unknown. Running from the mundane to the cadence of mystery, every step a discovery beating the drum of possibility. Running towards an alternative reality, free to forge a new identity. Running wild…

Created and directed F.A.Q. co-founder and Round Lake native Aaron M. Marquise, the hour-long modern circus show combined acrobatics, theater and dance in the fabulously funky, circular and minimally heated Gasholder Building in Troy, for three performances during one of February’s legendary cold spells, but judging by the crowds, it was well worth braving the way-below-freezing temperatures.

Holly & Evan Band

It was Friday the 13th. It was the eve of Valentine’s Day. But most importantly, when the Holly & Evan Band cranked up their batch o’ blues at Cafe NOLA in Schenectady earlier this month, it was the kick off the big Mardi Gras weekend. And fresh from recent big bashes like First Night Saratoga and the Capital Area Indie Fest, singer-guitarist Holly Taormina, bassist Evan Conway and drummer Rob Morris certainly do know how to throw down a party.

You can catch the Holly & Evan Band at 9pm tonight at Sharp Shooters Billiards in Amsterdam, where they’re sharing the stage with pop-rock duo Sirsy. Admission is $5.
