Just when the “13th Annual Troy Chowderfest” was ending, the unofficial after-party for the annual event begun at The Hangar on The Hudson. Sunday, October 13, 2019 marked the day when NYC punk rock legends, “The Fleshtones”, came into the “Collar City” to shake things up with some good ol’ rock and roll and punk […]

In a music scene, friendship is a fact that’s tough to dispute. We’re all keepers of a tradition that has the initiation fee of practice, wages of disinterest and rejection, and a camaraderie that finds its joy on shared bills and in the backs of music stores. And while we sling ink and not an […]

There’s a quality to a band, an unspoken quality that tells you you’re listening to music and not windchimes coincidentally keeping time to a busted trash can lid flapping in the wind. Yes, it’s unspoken… but I pay for ink by the barrel, so let me try. It’s solidity. The whole of a song can’t […]

It was a road trip to the Jersey shore for a surf music weekend 8/16-8/18/19.  Knowing many of the bands that would be playing was clearly a perfect reason to attend.

Her pinata and sculpture pieces have been at various locations, or one of her hand-crafted magnets is on your fridge. She might have ushered you to […]

There comes one day every month when the radio station smells like fresh ink, and plastic strip-wrapped bundles go out the door, carrying Xperience Monthly to, well, everywhere. We hope you find one in your travels, as they are a labor of love, from us, for the scene. Xperience September 2019 Issue (PDF)

On the first Thursday night of the month from six p.m. to 9 p.m., you can find me at Radioradiox Studios in Waterford for the Xperience Live show series. We’ve had bands from Bleak Little Duo, Let Go Daylight, CK and the Rising Tide to solo acts like Brittany Robichaud and Murali Coryell (okay, so […]

“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 […]
