Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds have raised the rafters at countless club shows throughout Greater Nippertown in recent years. The magnetic lead singer Arleigh Kincheloe and her band have brought the house down at big outdoor festivals in the area from Mountain Jam to the Green River Festival, too.
But their recent show at The Egg was their first Albany theater gig.
They delivered the same powerhouse, go-for-throat kind of performance that they’re known for. Just one problem – not enough room to dance.
As photographer Andrzej Pilarczyk says, “Kincheloe walks the tight rope between Janis Joplin and Joan Osborne with the Tower of Power horn section in tow. It’s tight, rockin’ blues and oh so, good!”
