7/13/10: Today’s Tips: Tuesday
DANCE: New York City Ballet @ the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Saratoga Springs. The second (and final) week of the ballet at SPAC kicks off with a supercharged all-Jerome Robbins program featuring performances of “NY Export: Opus Jazz,” “In the Night” and “The Concert.” It’s also Girls Night Out, which means that beginning at 6pm when the gates open, ticketholders can avail themselves of free gourmet chocolate tasting, fine wine tasting, massages, nail, hair and skin care treatments and more. It sounds soooo nice. 8pm. $18-$72.50.
MUSIC: Todd Rundgren @ Bearsville Theater, Woodstock. The Hermit of Mink Hollow plays a homecoming show of sorts as he returns to Woodstock leading his band – bassist Kasim Sulton, drummer Prairie Prince and guitarist Jesse Gress – in support of his new album, “Todd Rundgren’s Johnson.” Get it? Nudge, nudge, wink, wink… It’s actually a tribute to blues legend Robert Johnson. 8pm. $40.
ART: “White on White” @ Storefront Artist Project, Pittsfield. Opening reception for the exhibit of regional artists shown in conjunction with Barrington Stage Company’s upcoming production of “Art” (July 22-August 7). The play revolves around three men debating the value of art after one of them buys a white-on-white painting for a huge sum of money. Artworks are on view at the Storefront Artist Project, the Barrington Stage lobby and various storefronts and businesses throughout downtown Pittsfield. Opening reception at Storefront Artist Project is 6-8pm today. Free.
