Top Tips for Live Music (for the week beginning November 23rd)


A bad week for the live music scene this week.  Due to the recent spike in Covid cases, The Hollow has canceled its excellent Supper Club series for the time being.  Similarly, Putnam Place will only be open for small private events in December and January…no more live music.  Finally, this year’s Eddies Music Awards (originally scheduled for December 6) has been postponed until sometime in 2021.

However, it is Thanksgiving, and there are things to be thankful for (even in a terrible year like this one).  I’m thankful for Caffe Lena for putting a live, local music show in our living rooms every night (ditto The Linda).  Rensselaer County for filling the summer with outdoor music options.  The Palace, Guthrie Bell Productions, Pint Sized, and many others for their creativity in finding a way to keep the music going.  All the local musicians that continue to livestream (oftentimes from their house) every week.  And I’m really really thankful for the time we had with the venues that didn’t make it through this, none more than the Low Beat.  You will be missed.

Best bet: Troy Music Hall presents the Jayhawks on Sunday night.  This is a live digital stream broadcast from Minneapolis.  They will be performing the Sound of Lies album in its entirety, alongside other favorites.  A great way to cap off the holiday weekend.

Happy Thanksgiving.
