On Friday November 12th at The Madison Theatre in Albany #25toLIFEEE and Peshy Kruger present #LIFEEE Behind Bars 2. For those that aren’t fluent in Rap music lingo, bars means musical bars. The event is a rap battle that will entertain the masses and there will be times the punchlines will make you spit your […]

I grew up in a one-horse town. While just about everyone in that town was busy farming in some capacity, I was submerging myself in music. Now, there were no music stores or anything music related in this town, just the radio stations that came in. I would stay up so late to record shows […]

RRX: Many people take classical instrument lessons when they grow up, few pursue it, and you have. And not only have you beat the odds, you’re pretty much one of the people boosting the odds for others. How do you think you were able to beat the odds and wind up with a classical career? […]

This is a completely true story. I call it a tale of redemption. It is not meant to teach, preach or reach. It is simply a story of a long-time friend of mine. It began in 1974. I’m a freshman in college in Ohio studying Broadcasting. Among my new friends is a skinny, wise-ass punk […]

Nolan Cleary is the Editor-in-Chief for The Hudsonian at Hudson Valley Community College. He is interning at The Xperience. There’s a decent amount of pressure when it comes to running a newspaper.

What do Conan O’Brien, The Simpsons, and Mike Trash have in common?  Apparently, a band name.  The Erotics are Albany’s home-grown answer to The Andrews Sisters.  They’re not only prettier, but they play rock and roll like nobody’s business. Clever, irreverent lyrics growled over classic rock riffs, their songs are all orgasm and no foreplay.  […]

RRX: MIke Skill is one of the founders of The Romantics and has a brand new record coming out called “Skill……Mike Skill” Mike: That’s right. I felt it was time to actually get my name out there and display what I’ve got. A lot of people call me “Skill” anyway. RRX: And everybody calls me […]
