It was surf and rockabilly night at the Hangar on The Hudson on Friday, April 5. Music fans of the “It Came from Cropseyville” rockabilly group, Rocky Velvet, were wearing their Rocky Velvet t-shirts in preparation for their return to The Hangar stage. For this one-night only show, Surfer Joe, an Italian lead guitarist/ vocalist […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

Black Mountain Symphony is a 6 piece, genre-bending band that has been a staple in the Capital Region music culture for at least 16 years. The original idea for the band came about nearly 20 years ago and eventually transformed into the group we know today. However, this is a fresh lineup. After taking a […]

“Chord progressions” with  Kristen Capolino by Ralph Renna Let’s  face it, we are no longer living in a male dominated world, in the work force or playing guitar in the blues and hard rock scene.  At a very young age  most musicians develop their desire and passion to play or be a musician.  They either […]

They’re assholes. I don’t know Danny Boy or Burris, so I’m just going by their advertising. I know Brother T, and I think he’s a pretty cool guy, so I’m calling him an asshole our of pure professional courtesy. And you may be thinking to yourself, who isn’t an asshole these days? Well, I’m thinking […]
