They are the darlings of their hometown, Saratoga Springs, NY, where local radio stations WEQX 102.7 FM, and WEXT 97.7 h?ave kept the singles from their debut album "C?OW.?", Kindergarden Blues and Frisbee on steady rotation, and where their renowned barn parties have been known to draw crowds of just over six hundred. They landed their track (also from C?OW.) ?Rocky Road on Relix Magazine's? 2?016 January/­February compilation album?, alongside tracks from Tedeschi Trucks Band, Twiddle, and Lettuce; and they're excited to be sharing bills with names such as Aqueous, the McLovins, Wild Adriatic, and Mister F.

Peter Yarrow and Noel Paul Stookey at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall (8:00 PM)
Troy Savings Bank Music Hall, 30 Second Street Troy, NY 12180
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.

Last year's Lustmore was inspired by the experience of hypnogogia, the transitional state of consciousness between wakefulness and sleep, with each track aspiring to create a liminal world populated by enigmatic characters and cinematic plotlines.

Return of the Electric Love (Take II) at EMPAC (7:00 PM)
EMPAC, Renssalaer Polytechnic Institute, 110 8th Street Troy, NY 12180
Hudson-based artist Ephraim Asili will screen and discusses his recent film Return of the Electric Love (Take II) and other films that are influential to his work. Return of the Electric Love (Take II) is an optically printed 35mm film made from found footage of Kung Fu movies. <br /> <br />The sequel to a film Asili had recently completed, which was immediately lost in transit from the film lab, Return of the Electric Love (Take II) reuses this same archive of footage as its source material. His technique of re-photographing short gestural sequences from the original films adds washes of color to the action. A riot of fast-paced images and their fractured, synchronized soundtracks, the film moves from repetitive Kung Fu gestures-flying kicks and spins-to abstract blocks of color, each frame saturated red, pink, green, and blue in quick succession. In the making of this film, the projector light picked out the time-worn scratches, dust, and water damage etched upon the surface of the celluloid. Asili then photographed these marks using the optical printer and exposed new frames. At times these imperfections dance across the screen, as much a part of the image as the bodies of the martial artists.

On Halloween, 6 year old Michael Myers brutally - and inexplicably - killed his older sister. Sent away to Smith's Grove Sanitarium, the silent child sat incarcerated for 15 years under the care of psychiatrist Sam Loomis. Though the quiet town of Haddonfield had slowly begun to forget the tragic crime, this changes when Loomis arrives to warn the town that Myers has escaped from Smith's Grove. Seemingly set on killing a group of high school students, the psychiatrist seeks the help of the hesitant town sheriff in an effort to stop Myers before it's too late. Donald Pleasence, Jamie Lee Curtis and P.J. Soles are among the stars. <br /> <br />Run time: 116 min. (incl. 15 min special commentary with director John Carpenter)

Charles Atlas's Hypercube at EMPAC (7:00 PM)
EMPAC, Renssalaer Polytechnic Institute, 110 8th Street Troy, NY 12180
Artist Charles Atlas introduces a program of films that were influential in the development of his work-in-progress 3D video and performance work, Tesseract, which will be premiered at EMPAC in January 2017 in collaboration with choreographers Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener. Cube2: Hypercube by Andrzej Seku?a will be shown along with accompanying shorts. <br /> <br />Cube2: Hypercube, a 2002 science fiction feature by Andrzej Seku?a that was filmed almost exclusively within the constrained space of a metal-framed "cube" of diffused light. Reliant on active camera work that renders identical rooms with variable timescales, gravity shifts, folding spaces, and deadly CG effects, the film portrays a group of increasingly disoriented protagonists as they attempt to puzzle their way out of a quantum maze. Circling Steadicam work and close-up shots alternate with split-screens and camera rotations to render claustrophobic parallel realities.

"I think a lot of the music we're doing now is very similar to the music we were making in the earliest years with the obvious exception that we are no longer a trio," says Haynes. "In some ways we've come full circle and in other ways it only makes sense if you step back and connect the dots. And that seems right to me. You want to keep growing and you never want to be static, or done changing."

Indigo Girls (8:00 PM)
The Egg, 1 Empire State Plaza, South Mall Arterial, Albany, NY 12203
The Indigo Girls (Emily Saliers and Amy Ray) released their sixteenth studio album, One Lost Day, on June 2nd. Vast in its reach, but unified by the traveler's sense of wonder, gratitude, and empathy, One Lost Day moves like a centrifuge, pulling the listener close to linger in the small moment, then casting out onto sonic currents. This is music of the past, present, and future - a boundlessness earned and not bestowed. One Lost Day has a feeling of music composed across time, not just in time. These songs are rooted in tradition and inventive, too: nourished in dark soils, leafing and luminous. <br /> <br />Memories here are more than specters; they are evolutions. The album maps the dim corridors of the heart and mind, lifting and landing the listener across state lines and continents. Place is a character rich in the universal specific: "Boots on a board in a barn" in "Texas Was Clean," boys "under the bridge on the river shoals off GA 9? in "Fishtails," the New Orleans' 1788 fire and the fence around the St. Louis cemetery in "Elizabeth," the "sunny twist of Venice Chez Jay" in "Southern California is Your Girlfriend," and the devil-spawned Angola prison in Louisiana where three black men sat wrongly convicted for decades, confined in solitary.

Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls (8:00 PM - 8:00 PM)
Upstate Concert Hall, 1208 Route 146, Clifton Park, NY 12065
Frank Turner is aware of the passage of time, of the influence of days that drag and months that gallop can exert on what he would probably never dream of calling his body of work. After all, it has been a number of years now since the hardcore troubadour transformed himself from The Boy Who Surely Could Not, to The Man That Did; it has been years now that this name has appeared in the largest type on ticket stubs that permit entry to such venues as Wembley Arena, or the Royal Albert Hall; just as it has been years since the sound of his voice projecting itself from a digital radio was anything like a surprise, let alone a novelty. Naturally, such upward mobility provides reasons to be cheerful, and in ways that it would be lazy to term predictable. But at the same time, the mindful songwriter will take heed: for in order to gain a foothold one can subconsciously lose an edge. So when the time came, in the latter months of 2014, to record a new studio album, Frank took stock of his latest batch of constantly-evolving, keenly-observed vignettes and wondered, What now?

Berkner inhabits a kid's curious perspective in her lyrics and pens folk-pop melodies that bear repeated -- very repeated -- listenings." The Wall Street Journal called Laurie "one of the most popular children's performers in America ... her music is distinctive because it speaks to kids without talking down to them, charming youngsters without boring grown-ups."

Highly Suspect at Upstate Concert Hall (7:00 PM)
Upstate Concert Hall,1208 Route 146, Clifton Park, NY 12065
It happened in Brooklyn. In 2011, the members of Highly Suspect arrived in the borough from their native Cape Cod, MA. The next four years became a whirlwind of sex, drugs, and more rock 'n' roll than most people could ever handle. Then again, Johnny Stevens [vocals, guitar] and twin brothers Rich [bass, vocals] and Ryan Meyer [drums] aren't "most people." Those chemically-soaked nights, hazier mornings, broken relationships, and cathartic realizations leave residue across Highly Suspect's full-length debut album, Mister Asylum [300 Entertainment], and it's inebriating in the best way possible.

Laure Prouvost's Magic Electronics at EMPAC (7:00 PM)
EMPAC, Renssalaer Polytechnic Institute, 110 8th Street Troy, NY 12180
Magic Electronics is a 2014 work by French artist Laure Prouvost, in which she installed moving lights and synched audio into a gallery in order to animate and narrate her exhibition of objects. In doing so, she transformed the static exhibition into a stage. Magic Electronics is exemplary of an approach that slips between formats (video, sculpture, installation) and registers (speech, image, object, light), deliberately mistranslating and misunderstanding as it goes.

Ipsa Dixit at EMPAC (8:00 PM)
EMPAC, Renssalaer Polytechnic Institute, 110 8th Street Troy, NY 12180
Ipsa Dixit is an evening-length work of theatrical chamber music by American composer Kate Soper. Exploring the intersection of music, language, and meaning, the piece blends elements of monodrama, Greek theater, and screwball comedy to skewer the treachery of language and the questionable authenticity of artistic expression. Each of the piece's six movements draw on texts by thinkers such as Aristotle, Plato, Freud, Wittgenstein, Jenny Holtzer, and Lydia Davis, delivering ideas from the linguistic disciplines of poetics, rhetoric, and metaphysics through extended vocal techniques and blistering ensemble virtuosity. Developed in pieces since 2010, Soper's EMPAC residency will culminate in the first performance of the work's entire cycle, featuring percussionist Ian Antonio, violinist Josh Modney, and flutist Erin Lesser.
