It is a place where grownups, teens, and children can be part of the experience of sharing music, time, and friendship.

Eagles of Death Metal at Upstate Concert Hall (7:00 PM)
Upstate Concert Hall
Eagles of Death Metal is an American rock band from Palm Desert, California, formed in 1998 by best friends Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme. Despite their band name, Eagles of Death Metal is not a death metal band. The story goes that a friend was introducing Josh Homme to the death metal genre. When he played a song by the Polish band Vader and made a claim that the song was within the death metal genre, Homme then referred to Vader as "The Eagles of Death Metal". After hearing this phrase, he wondered what a cross between the Eagles and a death metal band would sound like. With that, the band was born.

Eliot Sumner at The Hollow (9:00 PM)
The Hollow Bar + Kitchen, 79 North Pearl Street Albany, NY, 12207
Following her first studio album, Eliot took a four-year hiatus to re-evaluate her sound. "I went into hibernation for a while, to search for my soul," she jokes. Thankfully she located it - quite possibly in the Lake District. "I moved there for five months in total isolation, with just my dog," she remembers. "I was experimenting with different writing methods." During this time she also worked with the composer Clint Mansell on a soundtrack for the film Filth. <br />Eliot decided to shed her previous band name in favour of her actual name: "I'm proud of the music I'm making now," she said at the time, "and I want to take ownership by putting my real name on it." After putting out the blistering, three-track EP 'Information' last August, Eliot embarked on a European tour with Swedish songstress Lykke Li. The tour was captured in a two-part, behind-the-scenes documentary that featured on i-D : 'On the Road with Eliot Sumner and Lykke Li'.

Boy and Bear at The Hollow (8:00 PM)
The Hollow Bar + Kitchen, 79 North Pearl Street Albany, NY, 12207
Within weeks of finishing work on 2011's award-winning, internationally renowned debut LP, Moonfire - months before it was even released - singer / songwriter Dave Hosking was hit by a creative tsunami. Boy & Bear is a band that likes to follow their muse - and the new songs were flowing. <br /> <br />The cocoon-like existence of working together in a strange new environment - Nashville, in the case of Moonfire - generated its share of magic, but Hosking and his fellow Boy & Bears wanted to bring it all back home, to get back to where their musical journey began in 2009. His band mates Tim Hart, Killian Gavin, Jon Hart and new(ish) addition, bassist (and table tennis ace) David Symes, agreed. 'Good art is personal,' says Hosking, 'it comes from a really personal place. These new songs started in my living room, and it made sense to keep this local, and let our personalities and experiences filter into the record.'

Hatebreed at Upstate Concert Hall (7:00 PM)
Upstate Concert Hall
Relentless reliability is intrinsic to longevity in the music business-or any other business for that matter. No giving up is allowed. No promise can go unfulfilled. If people can depend on you, they'll believe in you and stick with you until death. Since forming in 1994, Grammy award-nominated hardcore and metal stalwarts Hatebreed have constantly crushed with every subsequent album. Their six full-length effort and first for Razor & Tie, The Divinity of Purpose, proudly upholds that tradition cast in almost two decades of blood, tears, and flames. It's everything fans have come to expect from the Connecticut-based quintet-Jamey Jasta [vocals], Chris Beattie [bass], Wayne Lozinak [guitar], Frank Novinec [guitar], and Matthew Byrne [drums]-and more.

From the same fertile region that produced Upstate New York's Old Crow Medicine Show and The Horseflies comes Driftwood, a band with a rock n' roll soul and a folk art mind. Carving out a name for themselves with electrifying live performances, they are lighting up the mics throughout the Americana universe at top festivals, clubs and on radio (Mountain Stage, Sirius XM). Drawing on Old-time recordings to 1960's R&B, the music is crafted to serve the songs with upright bass, banjo, acoustic guitar and violin. The group's stage dynamics are as captivating as the songs. "I give so much of myself when I play because I deem it necessary in order to do the music justice", says Byrne, whose violin-shredding performances galvanize fans. "There's a reason people won't let them off the stage", says Jess Novak from The Syracuse New Times.

The result has become a fiery exhibition of artfully conceived dance music that truly is Big and Mean. Today, BMSM comprises a collective of over 15 analog artists spread out over the Northeastern United States, who strive day in and day out to reanimate and reinterpret a fusion of Afrobeat, Funk, Jazz, Latin and many other styles, all through a postmodern lens. Anyone who has witnessed The Machine live in action knows that their performances are among the heaviest and the sweatiest. Anyone who has heard their studio releases also knows that they can refine this complex sonic force with maturity and clarity that allows each composition to blossom to its fullest.

Proctor's Theater, 432 State Street Schenectady, NY 12305
Within eight months of their birth, LRB had already scored three Australian Top 20 singles and two Top Ten albums. In 1976, after their self-titled debut album was released in the USA, the long grind of 13 US tours in eight years had begun. By 1982 they became the only act - from anywhere - to have a top ten US single for six consecutive years. Little River Band was the first Australian band to successfully conquer foreign markets from an Australian base. <br /> <br />Headlining their own major shows in America, and touring internationally with the likes of the Doobie Brothers, Supertramp, America, Heart, Boz Scaggs, Fleetwood Mac, and The Eagles was a huge learning curve that honed LRB into one of the finest live bands in the world. Record success ran alongside - total record sales around the world have eclipsed the 30 million mark...16 hit singles by 1985, as well as gold, platinum, and multi-platinum album sales awards. All-told LRB have notched up eight top 10 singles in the US, where two of their songs, Reminiscing and Lady, have more than 9 million radio plays between them.

(Gwen Farrar, 1926) <br /> <br />With The Lavender Blues, modern cabaret performer Sarah Kilborne brings to light for the first time the quiet, yet powerful emergence between the world wars of songs that spoke about what it was like to be gay or "in the life."

Zach Deputy at The Hollow (9:00 PM)
The Hollow Bar + Kitchen, 79 North Pearl Street Albany, NY, 12207
There is nothing out there like Zach Deputy. Truly a one-man band, he is a powerhouse of performance, technical chops, and one hell of a charismatic presence. Put simply, Zach Deputy does what is called live looping: layering sounds through the magic of technology to create a full band effect. He isn't the only performer out there doing this, but he has taken the technique to the next level. First and foremost, however, Zach Deputy is a songwriter, a shredding guitarist and a soulful singer with a 4+ octave vocal range. He can also drop freestyle rhymes with the best of them. The Zach Deputy sound is essentially roots rock, but in his case the roots are in soul, calypso and dancehall, underpinned by driving hip-hop, rock steady, Motown and Stax backbeats created with his layered vocal beatboxing. On top of the backbeat, Zach Deputy's nylon strings pull multiple duties as bass, rhythm and lead guitar. Riding over that, a plethora of sounds-- keyboard, steel drums and an entire horn section-- come pumping and grinding out of the speakers when Zach takes the stage. He is a one man dance party, but he can also bring an audience to rapt attention with a heartfelt love ballad.

From Jon: In 1999, Ted MacKenzie (Drums), Mike Novakowski (Guitar), and I (Organ) got together for the first time as a trio. In the ensuing years the group has done a variety of gigs with local singers and horn players in the Albany/Saratoga area. We play a wide range of tunes, including compositions by Theolonius Monk, Wayne Shorter, Jimmy Smith (Of Course), and Jaco Pastorious. In the group, besides myself are two of the best musicians in the Northeast. Mike Novakowski is an incredible jazz guitarist who brings together some of the best parts of Wes Montgomery, Jim Hall, Herb Ellis, and Kenny Burrell. What can I say about Ted MacKenzie, except that he is one of the most knowledgable, passionate, and musical drummers with whom I have ever played.

Chris Cornell is a modern icon who transcends genre. He was the chief architect of the 90s grunge movement and remains one of the most iconic rock voices of all time. Achieving multi-platinum success with three legendary bands - selling over 30 million records worldwide - he has forged his own unique identity over three decades as a Grammy award-winning, Golden Globe nominated singer, songwriter, guitarist, composer and lyricist. His career began with Seattle trailblazers Soundgarden, whose wild soundscapes combined visceral punk attitude with artistic depth. Powerfully original, they were the first of their generation of Seattle bands to sign to a major label in 1989 and their work continued to evolve over the course of seven groundbreaking albums. Soundgarden made a historic return to the live stage in 2010 and have since toured the world, releasing the all-new studio album, King Animal, to widespread acclaim.

Three years on from their critically acclaimed "barbeque" record Corsicana Lemonade, White Denim are back with more than just a new album to commemorate. Their sixth record, Stiff - out 25 March 2016 via Downtown/Sony Red - is a return to the Austin quartet's frenetic rock band roots, and is both a jubilant thrill ride and joyous celebration of their past ten years. <br /> <br />Heading into the studio with an external producer to oversee a whole album for the first time - and even writing a tune with Cass McCombs ('Thank You') - the band teamed up with the legendary Ethan Johns (Paul McCartney, Laura Marling, The Staves) to produce their first truly live record, one teeming with a cool '70s undertow, tumultuous riffs and a feverish energy that's resulted in arguably some of their biggest and brawniest songs to date.

Celebrate 50 years with Peter and Paul as they reminisce on their time as part of America's favorite folk group! <br /> <br />No American folk group lasted longer or amassed a more loyal following than Peter, Paul and Mary; indeed, few groups of any genre logged more years or miles in direct, yearly touring; spreading the message and engaging the next generations. During its legendary career, the trio won five Grammy's, produced 13 Top 40 hits, of which 6 ascended into the Top 10 - as well as eight gold and five platinum albums. That PP&M achieved such a rarefied level of commercial success without compromise, while continuing a centuries-old tradition of people raising their voices in song for the sake of freedom, is simply further evidence of their extraordinarily successful career-as much a mission accomplished as a musical career. <br /> <br />Mary Travers passed away in September 2009 and it was a loss to her family, friends and the nation. Mary was a passionate singer of songs, songs that have enlightened us and moved us to action as citizens of America and the world. Her life and legacy remain a great American treasure.
