The Eleven Presents: Dysfunktone (FREE SHOW), Lark Hall, Albany, 8pm-11:30pm

Dysfunktone formed in 2015, in a garage in East Rockaway, New York. That has evolved over time into a full-fledged progressive jam-funk outfit that pushes the boundaries of genre and sound as far as it can go.

Dysfunktone is best known for its complex musical arrangements, slick dynamic changes and ability to weave extended improvisational sequences into any song in the catalog — the band’s unique interpretations of the music of their many various influences.

With a strong desire to spread their Long Island sound, Dysfunktone has toured all over the Northeast; sharing the stage with artists such as Dopapod, TAUK, Lespecial, Magic Beans, Dirtwire, Kitchen Dwellers, Zach Nugent, Consider the Source, and many more.

Marc Ford w/ Sly Fox and The Hustlers, Putnam Place, Saratoga Springs, 9pm-12am

Marc Ford has enjoyed a strong recent resurgence supporting his deep solo catalog. Besides Marc’s distinguished career starting with Burning Tree being signed to Epic Records in 1989, to playing with the likes of The Black Crowes, Ben Harper, Gov’t Mule, Booker T. Jones, Blue Floyd, The Blind Boys of Alabama and most recently Lucinda Williams to name a few, he has been releasing albums of his own material for over 20 years. Marc has joined forces with a highly accomplished rhythm section. Phil Jones (drums) has played extensively with Tom Petty, Joe Walsh, and Johnny Rivers, among others. Jim Wilson (bass) has been playing with multi-Grammy Award winner Daniel Lanois for over 20 years.

Manticore – The Tribute to ELP, The Linda, Albany, 8pm-11pm

Manticore – the tribute to Emerson Lake & Palmer recreates the original sound of ELP live on stage and delivers a uniquely dynamic and bombastic performance that you won’t soon forget. There are less than a handful of ELP tributes in the world, due to the complexity and difficulty of the music and Manticore is the best there is.

This year is the 50th anniversary of the Brain Salad Surgery album and Manticore will be performing hits from this album, as well as traditional favorites like Lucky Man, Fanfare For The Common Man, Tarkus and more.

“Guaranteed to blow your head apart….you gotta see the show!”

The Beach Boys, SPAC, Saratoga Springs, 7:30pm

For more than six decades, The Beach Boys’ music has been an indelible part of American history. Their brilliant harmonies conveyed simple truths through sophisticated, pioneering musical arrangements. The Beach Boys transcended their music and have come to represent Californian culture. They provided fans around the world with a passport to experience love, youthful exuberance, and surf culture. Founded in Hawthorne, California in 1961, The Beach Boys were originally comprised of the three teenaged Wilson brothers: Brian, Carl, and Dennis, their cousin Mike Love, and school friend Al Jardine. The Beach Boys signed with Capitol Records in July 1962 and released their first album, Surfin’ Safari, that same year.
