If you know musicians, you might be inclined to think of them as sharks. No, not because of their uncanny ability to smell a good gig in the water from a quarter mile off, but because they have to keep moving. This is probably one of the actual differences between a musician that plays for […]

It’s that time of year again. Time to carve up the corned beef, pour a pint of Guinness and celebrate the greatest Englishman ever to make a career out of his Irish heritage. Much like Patrick Bateman, there is an idea of Shane MacGowan. He’s a hard drinking, drug taking, hell raising Irishman. He’s a […]

Thanks for checking us out again, we’re proud to be part of Xperience, the hottest thing going on for the Capital Region next to Gov. Cuomo’s trips to Puerto Rico. I planned on doing a continuation from the last issue on what I called “Musical Royalty,” where music acts are given (somewhat) proper titles to […]

‘All we need is love’. The love that was felt all around Revolution Hall Saturday, March 7, was pure, deep, and electrifying. This was all in part to the volunteers, event organizers, concert goers, and the musicians who took part in the “7th Annual Dustin Mele Memorial Concert”. In 2013, Dustin Mele, the son of […]

I did it for the first time this year, letting my hair first grow to enormous proportions as I gathered donations and then took it […]

You may know him from such places that used to exist such as: The Hudson Duster and Bogies. You may know him from bands that used to play the scene such as: Attica and Bruise Bros. But… Mike Valente has only aged like a fine wine, Upstate Black N Blue and his band Brick By […]

On New Year’s Day, after a wild night of reveling and saying goodbye to our friends and enemies, my boyfriend at the time, Paul Cavanaugh and I left for our hitchhiking adventure.  After a series of adventures along the way, we found ourselves standing outside of a truck stop in Big Springs, Nebraska trying to […]

I was raised in Loudonville, NY and am an alumna of Russell Sage College and Hudson Valley Community College. I’m a former osteopathic medical student who returned to the passion of my youth, my art and my music, when health issues forced my withdrawal from medical school. I’m an avid composer of Contemporary/New Age piano […]

Of all the unique qualities that make Albany band Lemon of Choice so fresh, none stick out as much as their affinity for Hawiian shirts and their ability to craft extremely catchy tunes.
