There are so many compelling events tonight that we’re torn about how to spend our almost Friday, AKA Thursday. Vapor Night Club in Saratoga Springs is hosting a free concert featuring Colony House, an indie rock band from Franklin,Tennessee who hit 154 on the Billboard 200. We’re particularly interested in the show because it will be opened by Girl Blue (pictured), who was featured on the cover of our first issue and in our first VAlt session and One Red Martian, a group of soulful rockers who now call Albany home. The show starts at 7.
McGeary’s in Albany will host singer/songwriter and comedian Erin Harkes at 7:30 PM. Harkes. Harkes has regularly won accolades as the region’s best singer/songwriter in the Times Union readers poll.
It’s time for a Food for Thought film event at WAMC’s The Linda; tonight it’s Tree Man. Ever wonder where your Christmas tree came from? Tree Man is the story of François, a “Tree Man” from Québec, who sells Xmas trees in Brooklyn every year. Filmmaker Jon Reiner will be on hand for the screening.
Finally, our own Richard Lovrich will host a night of night of odd short stories soundtracked by DJ Trumastr at Albany’s Savoy. Titled “Regrettable Tales and Redemptive Music: Last Gasp 2016” the event is sure to tweak your brain. Being in the room with Richard is alone worth the price of admission, which just so happens to be in this case $7 and a dinner reservation.
