Top Tips for Live Music (for the week beginning October 12th)


As we move further into fall, the opportunities for outdoor live music are starting to wane. This is somewhat compensated by the increase in local venues presenting virtual concerts.  The excellent ongoing series being put on by both Caffe Lena and The Linda are locally produced, and feature artists performing from our very own Nippertown stages.  In addition to this, several more venues have started presenting virtual shows from other locations, including Troy Music Hall (with concert series from the Jayhawks, Rufus Wainwright, and others) and The Egg (with a six show series from Lucinda Williams).  Nothing beats being there in person, but these are the next best thing.

Best bet:  I’ve really been digging “Astronauts”, the new single from Sirsy.  Why not catch their livestream this Thursday, and at the same time help the City of Albany put some coats on the backs of kids in need?
