1/25/11: Today’s Tips: Tuesday
MUSIC: Jesse Malin & St. Marks Social @ Jillian’s, Albany. Seems like only yesterday that Malin was stalking a portable stage in Albany’s Lincoln Park, as his band warmed up the crowd for the Ramones. Well, the Ramones are gone, and so’s D Generation, but Malin just keeps on rockin’. With Tom McWatters & the Philo Beddoe Band and Dave Graham.
9pm. $12. UPDATE: The show is now starting earlier at 7:30pm.
MUSIC: Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt @ The Egg, Albany. Two guys, two guitars, sittin’ on stage together. Yes, they’re both fantastic songwriters – and it’s always fun to watch them work together – but they’re also both great storytellers: in their songs and in their between-tune banter, too. 7:30pm. $64.50, $79.50. SOLD OUT.
MUSIC: The Charles Lloyd New Quartet @ UMass at Amherst’s Bowker Auditorium, Amherst. One of the greatest jazz saxophonists on the planet with an all-star band that includes pianist Jason Moran, bassist Reuben Rogers and drummer Eric Harland. 7:30pm. $25, $15; youths 17 and under $10.
FILM/DISCUSSION: “Live from Tokyo” @ Emerson Hall at Union College’s Taylor Music Center, Schenectady. A dynamic documentary examining the cutting-edge contemporary indie music in Tokyo. A Q&A session with director Lewis Rapkin follows the screening. 6pm. FREE.
