Bluer Than Blue



It’s shaping up to be a very BLUE weekend on the Nippertown music scene…

It all kicks off on Friday (December 14), when Local 518 rockers BLUE FACTORY celebrate the release of their sophomore album, Primates, Drunks & Cowboys, with a wailin’ happy hour party and performance at Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany. (6pm; $10 which includes a copy of the new CD)

BLUE MACHINE – the rockin’, rollickin’ mash-up of Super 400 and vivacious frontman Tommy Love – takes over the stage at the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Troy at 10pm on Saturday. (10pm; FREE)

Down in Woodstock, the all-star combo known as BLUE CHICKEN – featuring various members of the Levon Helm Band and Ollabelle, as well as the dueling guitars of Jim Weider (the Band) and Sid McGinnis (the David Letterman band) – steps into the spotlight at the Bearsville Theater. (9pm; $20)

And it might have been an even bluer weekend, except that BLUE SUNDAY – who were scheduled to play two concerts at the Wood Theater in Glens Falls on Saturday – postponed their shows due to illness.

And, yes, there’s also the ARTHUR HOLMES BLUES BAND at Pauly’s Hotel in Albany on Saturday and THIRTEEN FEET OF BLUEGRASS at Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs on Sunday, but those were just too easy…
