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. Asbury Park Lanes was where the main festival events took place.  A retro venue with six lanes and great vibes by adding music to […]

Unless you’ve spent the 21st century with your head planted firmly in quicksand, you’ve noticed that nerddom, or geekdom, or fandom is hot now. Which goes to figure, since back in your youth (should you be as old as I,) they were the masters of the computers that are now the masters of our social […]

All music tells a story. Whether the lyrics take you to the first time you fell in love, or a violin movement brings you a burst of sadness from deep down in your soul, few things beat music’s ability to take an experience and pass it around, letting every listener play around with it in […]

If you don’t know her by name, you’ve seen her at local venues. You may have been accidentally slapped by her trademark, long flowing braids on a dance floor.

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 […]

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 […]
