Top Tips for Live Music (for the week beginning January 11th)


We’re starting to see the first trickle of rescheduled shows have actual new dates for later in the year.  How accurate these turn out to be is obviously TBD, but it’s a hopeful sign regardless.  In the meantime, there’s a nice live stream series with the Dust Bowl Faeries that’s been announced down at Helsinki Hudson.  Conversely, The Linda’s “Open for Take-Out” series has postponed their January shows in response to the uptick in Covid we’re experiencing currently.  Stay safe out there, and let’s get through this.

Madison VanDenburg, Moriah Formica & Sawyer Fredericks

Best bet: The latest “Palace Sessions” is a triple threat of local talent, and really can’t be missed. Madison VanDenburg, Sawyer Fredericks, and Moriah Formica – any one of these artists is a show worth seeing.  See all three of them together this Wednesday night, courtesy of the Palace Theatre, the City of Albany, and Mirth Films
