Finally, in 1983, Paul and I had enough money to get an inexpensive apartment in the South End of Albany. It was on Green Street, in “The Pastures” area. The city had just finished putting up a new development with two- and three-story buildings made to look like brownstones for “section 8” housing. We were […]

Although we had anticipated a rough adjustment, it turned out to be rougher than we’d hoped. It was the end of the school year, and I had made sure that Jessie and Justin were both learning along the way. They had, in fact, learned some things that most adults haven’t yet learned about navigating your […]

“Save the Planet! Buy More Vintage”. The popularity of purchasing vintage items has risen. With popular TV shows as “Pawn Stars”, “The American Pickers”, and “Antiques Roadshow”, it gives viewers a glimpse into what is perceived as “antiques”, as historic, national treasures that tell a story. Vintage items, whether it’s a classic Coca-Cola bottle, a […]

Many of us local musicians and fans as well, felt as if a part of us has died when we got news that The Low Beat was closing. The scene will never be the same and we at RadioRadioX.com and Xperience Monthly needed to address this with a proper send-off. Today I took some time […]

Safety Meeting is composed of three fun-loving and genuine guys who make music that sounds like what you’d expect from a band called Safety Meeting (reverb-soaked indie-rock with some touches of psych and jazz). The band sat down to discuss the role they play in the Saratoga rock scene, the strain COVID has put on […]

Alan Wilson Watts said that, “through our lives, the universe perceives itself.” And this perceiver believes that through creativity, the universe speaks to us. And rarely, we find people who seem to have no limit on the creative roads they can travel. Their universes are multilingual. Tara Rule is just such a person. She’s an […]

There’s a debate, perhaps only in this writer’s head, about genre. What role do we, as artists, play in the forming of a genre? At what point does an artist pushing the envelope from one genre become a whole new genre? And can I declare a genre for my music, or must it be conferred […]

Anthony is one of our area’s ‘younger’ talents, but his talent is by no means juvenile! He tears up a stage with modern hard rock and his screaming guitar.  We have so many well-seasoned performers in the area, it is great for me to see these guys ready to step in and carry on the […]

The plan to make the best time we could went slightly awry when we made a necessary stop for gas and bathrooms and inadvertently left our cat at the truck stop. We realized as soon as we got halfway up the entrance ramp, which was longest ramp I’d ever been on and was also very […]

As we were leaving Salt Lake City, Paul and I realized that the trip was going to take a lot longer than anticipated unless we could figure out a low to no-cost way to repair the bus. Now, we were really glad that we had made a stop in Reno before hitting Salt Lake. We […]
