Top Tips for Live Music (for the week beginning August 10th)


Best bet: A stripped down version of Dust Bowl Faeries (Ryder Cooley and Jon B. Woodin) plays Monument Square in Troy on Saturday.  Difficult to categorize for all the right reasons, you can expect lots of moodiness and a few tangos.  Always compelling.
