MUSIC: Ray Wylie Hubbard @ The Linda, Albany. One of the great Texas troubadours makes a very rare Nippertown concert appearance. Yeah, he’s the guy who wrote the classic “Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother,” but so much more, too. 8pm. $17. More info and videos here…
MUSIC: The Willy Amrod Band @ the Bearsville Theater, Woodstock. It’s a CD release party. No, it’s a birthday party. Wait, you’re both right. Funky roots-rocker Amrod is throwing a double-barrelled party with special guests Fred Wesley (James Brown’s band) and Frankie Gadler (NRBQ). The evening will also be captured with a live video shoot. 8pm. $15.
PARTICIPATORY MUSIC: Ukulele Night @ the Moon & River, Schenectady. Ron Gordon leads uke enthusiasts. Come to play or just listen… 7pm. FREE.
PARTICIPATORY FILM: “Grease Sing-Along” @ the Palace Theatre, Albany. Call it cinematic karaoke. Join in the fun as you flashback to the ’50s with Sandy and Danny, the T-Birds and the Pink Ladies. 7pm. $7; kids $5.
