Meet Leslie Barkman, one of Capital Region’s blues musicians. Since her move to the City of Albany eleven years ago, Barkman has created a name for herself in the regional blues scene. One can hear Barkman sing and play at any of the many area blues jams. Currently, Barkman performs as both solo artist and […]

Today, YouTube is a universe set in an oblong box with a play/pause button. You can listen to long forgotten music, laugh at someone’s wit (or misfortune,) pass the time with a famous stranger, and with millions of DIY videos, earn a Doctorate in the school of Hard Knocks. The Glenn Slingerland Situation, a half-hour, […]

“You may have seen him walking around Downtown Albany or perhaps even Troy. He’s the guy wearing headphones, singing aloud with a smile and a dance in his step. I met him riding the 522 CDTA express on my way to work last summer. It was a crowded morning bus and I see this guy […]

We love variety here at the RadioradioX family. We have some pretty damned weird cousins we hear from as they make their slow journey around the radio dial. Variety is the spice of life, and at least for me right now, the gumbo of life is The Purple Stuff. With Matthew Pryce (guitar/vocals), Joshua Gruft […]

It was funk night at the Rustic Barn Pub. Northampton, MA based group, Beau Sasser’s Escape Plan, featuring Albany NY’s Justin Henricks, brought out the funk as they welcomed in spring at their return to the venue. I wasn’t familiar with Beau Sasser’s Escape Plan before attending their show on Saturday night.   I was encouraged […]

We tried to exceed our expectations with the June 2019 Issue, and we are content that this one’s it. We have drummers Gary Burke and the Fleshtones’ Bill Milhizer, along with performer and friend-of-the-scene Chandler Travis. We’ve gone after established bands, new bands and features that we think you’ll be happy with. So check the […]

Girth Control wasn’t necessarily supposed to happen but then again neither was penicillin; I guess you could call it a happy accident. The guys that make up Girth Control are actually three fourths of the still very active punk-Americana group, The Slaughterhouse Chorus. When lead vocalist and guitarist Chris had to take a break, Jay […]

While shoppers were spending time dining and checking out the massive LEGO sculptures that were featured in Crossgates Mall on a Saturday evening, music patrons spent their time listening to original music from five local bands inside Lucky Strike’s Jupiter Hall. This was all in part of a CD release party that Turbine Sunrise was […]

I love a sound that just opens the throttle. I want music that makes me want to speed, or at least justify the speeding that I may do unawares. Good, strong rhythm, melodies that can nudge a Ouija board, that kind of thing. MÖRDWÖLF is like that. Don’t let the umlauts (the two dots) fool […]

Editor’s Note: Caroline “MotherJudge” Isachsen passed on Saturday, March 9th, 2019. This article was written about her benefit event, while she was still alive. We feel that this should not be changed, and is presented “as is.”  Coming together… It is just the thing that one must do when one of their own is overcoming […]
