LECTURE: Van Gogh and Nature (6:00 PM)
125 Washington Ave, Albany, NY 12210
Richard Kendall, Clark Art Institute, Curator at Large <br />Exhibition curator Richard Kendall will discuss the research and origin of the exhibition and catalogue as well as the significance of its theme. Fundamental to the project has been a close study of the artist's work throughout his career and his rarely discussed preoccupation with the natural world, from flowers, birds, and insects to the majestic landscapes of rural Holland and the south of France. Still underestimated in many approaches to Van Gogh's art is his passion for reading, which included guides to nature, poetry that addressed the countryside, and literally hundreds of novels in Dutch, English, and French that celebrated rural life in an age of expanding towns and cities. This issue will also be explored in the lecture, which will be illustrated with works from Van Gogh and Nature and other sources. Free admission

Yonder Mountain String Band - Alive at Five (5:00 PM)
Jennings Landing at the Corning Preserve
For nearly 17 years, Colorado's Yonder Mountain String Band has redefined bluegrass music, expanding the traditional acoustic genre beyond its previously established boundaries by steadily pushing the envelope into the realms of rock 'n' roll and improvisation. YMSB has always played music of their own design, in the process attracting a devout coterie of fans that often resembles a tight-knit family on an epic musical journey as Yonder traverses the country with an ever-rigorous tour schedule. Yonder is a quintessential ensemble honing its craft night after night on the road, and the fans are there to experience it in real time. The result is music that doesn't stand still, always progressing and breaking unprecedented ground. With their latest album, Black Sheep (scheduled for national release on their own Frog Pad Records at Telluride Bluegrass Festival on June 16, 2015), Yonder Mountain String Band - Adam Aijala (guitar, vocals), Dave Johnston (banjo, vocals) and Ben Kaufmann (bass, vocals), joined by new recruits violinist Allie Kral and mandolin virtuoso Jacob Jolliff - begins a new era. The first YMSB release produced by the band itself, Black Sheep is, by any measure, a triumph, perhaps the most mesmeric of their storied career.

Pierre teaches Jewish and Palestinian Israeli children to dance and compete together. The film explores the complex stories of three children, all of whom who are forced to confront issues of identity, segregation, and racial prejudice as they dance with their enemy. We watch Pierre transform their lives, confirming his belief that dance can overcome hatred and provide the first steps towards real change.

Join the Northshire Bookstore for a reading, discussion and signing with author Dennis Mahoney. "Bell Weather" has been an instant hit with our booksellers! <br /> <br />Set in a fantastical 18th century world where rain falls up and color storms wash the land with bright hues, Bell Weather is, at its core, the story of a spirited young woman fighting for the freedom to choose her own path. Although Molly tells the townsfolk of Root almost nothing of her past, readers learn about her childhood with an overbearing governess, a cold father, and a brilliant, cunning brother who will stop at nothing to ensure that he and Molly are together and unbridled. Mahoney has created a marvelous world that readers will want to visit again and again. ~ Reviewed by Amelia Stymacks

Dale Watson with Special Guest Lara Hope & The Ark-Tones (8:00 PM)
The Linda - WAMC's Performing Arts Center, 339 Central Ave, Albany, NY 12206
Dale Watson is a honky tonk hero and country music maverick, a true outlaw carrying on where Waylon Jennings left off. A member of the Austin Music Hall of Fame, he stands alongside Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and George Strait as one of the finest country singers and songwriters from the Lone Star State. Although Dale has made his name as a Texas artist, he actually was born in Alabama. Moving to Houston as a teenager, his musical journey began right out of high school as he started playing clubs and local honky-tonks. In 1988, it led him to move to Los Angeles on the advice of rockabilly singer-guitarist Rosie Flores. He played in the house band at the legendary Palomino Club in Hollywood for a couple years and recorded a few singles before moving to Nashville to write songs for a publishing company run by Gary Morris (writer of such country/pop hits as "The Wind Beneath My Wings"). Commercial country did not fit the fiercely independent songwriter so Dale relocated to Austin, Texas where he got a record deal and wrote several songs poking fun at the industry side of Nashville, including "Nashville Rash" from his Hightone debut Cheatin' Heart Attack and "A Real Country Song" from his 1996 follow-up Blessed or Damned. After making three albums with Hightone, Dale released The Trucking Sessions on Koch Records in 1998. Including 14 original driving songs, the album received high praise and caused critics to compare him to chart-topping writer Red Simpson, who was responsible for some of the most iconic trucking tunes in country music. Just two years after this success, Dale's fiancee died in a car accident. As chronicled in the Zalman King documentary Crazy Again (2006), he turned to drugs and alcohol to cope with her loss and nearly died of an overdose. Dale then checked himself into a mental institution and left a year later, releasing his tribute album to her called Every Song I Write Is For You (2001). After recording a few more albums, he decided to take a break from touring and moved to Maryland to be closer to his daughters. Back in Texas and on the road in 2006, Dale has been trucking ever since, touring around the world and acting in films (The Thing Called Love, On the Borderline), on television (Friday Night Lights) and most recently, on stage in Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, a southern gothic musical by Stephen King and John Mellencamp . His rumbling baritone has also been heard on commercials for Shell, Monster.com and On the Border Restaurants. Dale signed with Red House Records in 2011 to release his 20th album called The Sun Sessions. Hailed as "one of the best country albums of the year" (Atlanta Journal Constitution), it was recorded at Memphis' legendary Sun Studios with The Texas Two (bassist Chris Crepps and drummer Mike Bernal) in the stripped-down style of Johnny Cash's earliest recordings. He followed this with El Rancho Azul, 14 fresh honky tonk originals about marriage, heartbreak and honkytonkin, which propelled Dale into the national spotlight with multiple appearances on late-night television and NPR.

Schedule The Summer Science Camp schedule is provided below. The camp day is from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm (early drop-off is available beginning at 8:30 am; all campers must be picked up by 5:00 pm). Participants may register for one, two, or all three weeks depending on their interests. July 13 - July 17 - The Deep Blue Space is often called the "Final Frontier," but there are many who believe that title should be reserved for the Earth's oceans. Dive in as we explore the secrets hidden within our vast oceans through hands-on activities where you will test water samples, interact with marine life, and learn about ocean conservation. Join us for a week of discovery in the Deep Blue! July 20 - July 24- Medical Mysteries The human body works to keep us healthy in creative and surprising ways, often without us even knowing it! In this camp, you will roll up your sleeves and put on your surgical gloves as we learn how the body "fixes" itself and compare that process to how disease is managed in animals. Ideal for anyone interested in unlocking the mysteries of living organisms, particularly those who want to become doctors or veterinarians. July 27- July 31 - Engineered to Amaze Our world is filled with countless examples of engineering - from bridges to cell phones to roller coasters. In this camp, you will test your engineering skills as you design, create, and test simple and complex machines. You will also learn about the history of engineering, how it has advanced over time, and what is in store for the future. The perfect camp for anyone who is curious about how things work! Age Groups Camp participants will be divided into groups based on their age. Though each group will explore the same topic, projects and activities will be tailored to the corresponding grade level. The age groups and space availabilities are as follows: •Entering 4th - 6th grade: 40 spots available/week •Entering 7th - 8th grade: 20 spots available/week •Entering 9th - 11th grade: 20 spots available/week Beyond the Classroom In addition to learning from some of the area's best teachers and accomplished professionals, students will also benefit from: •Field trips in the Capital District and beyond •Hands-on interactive projects and activities •Discussions and insights on potential career paths •Chances to meet new friends with similar interests Costs Each week of the Summer Science Camp at ACPHS is $230* (save $20 if you register by May 1). Participants may choose one, two, or three weeks depending on their interests. Since space is limited; admission is on a first come, first served basis. For those who attend two weeks of the camp, the total cost will be $435 (a $25 savings) minus the $20 early bird discount, if applicable.

Atlas Genius - Alive at Five (5:00 PM)
Jennings Landing Amphitheatre at the Corning Preserve
The members of Adelaide, Australia alternative rock band Atlas Genius do things a little differently. They set about building a studio where they could write and record music for their newly formed band three years before they even played their first live show as Atlas Genius. After months of installing drywall and flooring between songwriting sessions, the first song that Atlas Genius finished was "Trojans." The band posted their self-produced recording to the internet, and then pretty much forgot about it, going back to university to pursue more realistic careers. But as they crammed for their fall semester final exams, the blog Neon Gold discovered "Trojans" and wrote a post praising the song as sure to "invade your head, all dressed up in a clever disguise of earnest vocals riding a hooky riff." Checking the band's email account for the first time in over a month, they found their inbox being barraged by fans, record labels, booking agents and management companies from all over the world. The band continued to write and record new songs in relative isolation in their studio as word on "Trojans" spread organically across the internet, eventually selling over 100,000 singles and storming the Top 5 on the Modern Rock radio charts. Signing to Warner Bros. Records in 2012, Atlas Genius promptly issued the Through the Glass EP and their Billboard Top 200 debut full-length, When It Was Now, capturing the band's singular combination of sophisticated musicality and warm, wistful spirit - a sound NYLON praised as a "double whammy of high-flying pop melodies and instantly catchy lyrics," and led Billboard to deem the band part of "The Next Wave" of up-and-coming alternative bands.

Owl (former members of The Cult and The Clay People) at Putnam Den (9:30 PM)
Putnam Den, 63A Putnam Street, Saratoga Springs
Owl pose some intriguing questions on their second full-length album, The Right Thing released April 9th on Overit Records. <br /> <br />"So many things are up in the air today," ponders frontman Chris Wyse. "A lot of times you ask yourself, 'Are we doing the right thing?' It's a simple question, but also profound. We're always wondering if we're moving in the right direction." <br /> <br />Musically, the trio has nothing to worry about. They bravely continue to forge ahead on the right path. Approaching timeless rock structures through a healthy amount of experimentation and instrumental intricacy, the group takes flight locked and loaded with unforgettable hooks and impressive delivery. It's a combination that instantly impacts and takes up residence inside your head as all great hard rock should. <br />After releasing their self-titled debut in 2009, Owl captivated audiences alongside the likes of Helmet and Jet to Hollywood all-star rock collective Camp Freddy. Between touring and recording commitments with Wyse's other gig - playing bass in The Cult - Owl began writing what would become the band's self-produced The Right Thing in early 2011. Sessions took place in Matt Sorum's Drac Studios in Los Angeles as well as at Dinsmore's own O Studios in the mountains of upstate New York. <br /> <br />"Although the first album was heavy and bombastic, I feel like our new record is even more engaging and exhilarating on various levels," Dinsmore reveals. "There's an honesty that shines through. We were all in the moment, and it shows. If you let it, this record will take you on a wild ride." <br /> <br />The title track boasts a propulsive drumbeat that drives into staggering distortion as Wyse muses,"You couldn't handle. You're tripping. You can't trust yourself". The song teeters between brooding and hypnotic as the band roars to life. <br /> <br />On the other end of the spectrum, they transform The Kinks' classic "Destroyer" into a swaggering futuristic stomper. It's got a classic energy, but it's still unequivocally Owl. <br /> <br />Elsewhere on the album, Wyse delves into his Irish roots on the rousing "Rover," and welcomes guest drummer Johnny Tempesta of The Cult on the electrifying, tribal-beat driven "All Day." <br /> <br />"Perfect" contemplates a perfect day over an ethereal soundscape flush with emotion. Wyse shares, "Sometimes you have those special moments where everything feels perfect. You get a flash of clarity and are able to reach another level. It's about cherishing those simple times when the dark parts of life just don't matter." <br /> <br />Mezilis concludes, "We approach music in a slightly unorthodox way, but our aim has always been to take listeners places they've never been before." <br /> <br />That's undeniably The Right Thing for Owl and listeners everywhere.

Charmboy - Alive at Five (5:00 PM)
Jennings Landing Amphitheatre at the Corning Preserve
Three small town kids brought up on hard rock and psychedelic music in the '70s, Charmboy's members long for rock's bad ol' days. This is unapologetic guitar rock without gimmick or pretense. "As far as Charmboy are concerned, rock & roll might as well have died when Alice Cooper's original band dissolved in 1973. And by the sound of their debut Let It Feed, the power trio don't seem to care. Theirs is rock of the hard and psychedelic variety-you know, the way it was meant to be." (Metroland).

The Edgar Winter Band - Alive at Five (5:00 PM)
Jennings Landing Amphitheatre at the Corning Preserve
By the time Edgar Winter left his hometown of Beaumont, Texas in the 1960s, he was already proficient in every aspect of music. A child prodigy, Edgar has found success in music, film and television. Edgar's immediate impact on the record business with his first record, Entrance, was followed up with two hit albums with his band White Trash, and he topped that success with The Edgar Winter Group, creating the number one hit "Frankenstein" as well as the ever-popular "Free Ride." The album They Only Come Out At Night peaked at number 3 on the Billboard charts and stayed on the chart for 80 weeks on its way to double platinum status. Edgar invented the keyboard body strap, an innovation that allows him the freedom to move around the stage during his high-energy multi-instrument performances. His music is always evolving and he is a master of stretching his skill and imagination to produce amazing results. He also is a prolific writer, with a volume of poetry and a collection of exciting stories in his writing repertoire. Edgar continues to be a musician at the top of his game, and he's proved he can do it all.

Heart continued topping the charts through the '80's and '90's with huge hits like "These Dreams," "Alone," "What About Love," "If Looks Could Kill," "Never," and a string of other hits that showcased the sisters' enormous talents as musicians, singers and songwriters. <br /> <br />As individuals, the sisters have also achieved significant success. Ann sang on songs that were both chart successes and motion picture themes, like "Almost Paradise" from Footloose, "Best Man in the World" from The Golden Child, and "Surrender to Me" from Tequila Sunrise, while Nancy composed and performed the scores to a half dozen motion pictures including the award winning "Jerry Maguire" and "Almost Famous."

The Battle of Saratoga in 1777 ended with British general John Burgoyne's troops surrendering to the American rebel army commanded by General Horatio Gates. Historians have long seen Burgoyne's defeat as a turning point in the American Revolution because it convinced France to join the war on the side of the colonies, thus ensuring American victory. <br /> <br />Theodore Corbett presents a new perspective, and examines Saratoga and its aftermath as part of ongoing conflicts among the settlers of the Hudson and Champlain valleys of New York, Canada, and Vermont.

RaeLynn - Alive at Five (5:00 PM)
Jennings Landing Amphitheatre at the Corning Preserve
With her empowering Top 20 hit, "God Made Girls," RaeLynn had the highest charting debut single by a solo female artist in 2014. The song skyrocketed to the #1 spot on the iTunes Country Songs chart and earned gold certification by the RIAA for sales exceeding 500,000 copies, in addition to the music video garnering over 12 million views. The music video has earned her a pair of CMT Music Award nominations for Female Video of the Year and Breakthrough Video of the Year. Now, her follow-up single, "For A Boy," is available on iTunes. RaeLynn is currently the #5 biggest selling female country artist in the last year. The vibrant 20-year-old was selected as one of CMT's Next Women of Country and recently released the Me EP. RaeLynn penned the collection of five tracks for The Valory Music Co. project, which climbed into the Top 5 on iTunes' Top Country Albums chart on release day. Taste of Country insists, "fans of every age will find a trio of lyrics to get behind" and Popcrush calls her "cheerful, charming, ultra-talented and downright hilarious." Just like her musical hero Dolly Parton, RaeLynn embraces her country roots with a flash of pizzazz, commemorating her Grand Ole Opry debut with an "Op-Rae Selfie" from center stage. The Voice season 2 alum, who has returned to the show to perform, is featured on "Buzzin'" from coach Blake Shelton's new album. So far this year, she has toured on fellow Texan Miranda Lambert's Certified Platinum Tour and will hit the road with Rascal Flatts' Riot Tour 2015 this summer. This past March, RaeLynn partnered with the National Association for Music Education and Give a Note Foundation to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Music in Our Schools Month. To support the foundation's mission and encourage music students nationwide, RaeLynn penned "Always Sing," which is available on iTunes.

Blue Öyster Cult - Alive at Five (5:00 PM)
Jennings Landing Amphitheatre at the Corning Preserve
For over four decades, Blue Öyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. Indeed, the Long Island, NY-based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work. Blue Öyster Cult occupies a unique place in rock history because it's one of very few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success. The band is often cited as a major influence by other acts such as Metallica, and BÖC was listed in VH1's countdown of the greatest hard rock bands of all time. Upon the release of BÖC's self-titled debut album in 1972, the band was praised for its catchy-yet-heavy music and lyrics that could be provocative, terrifying, funny or ambiguous, often all in the same song. BÖC's canon includes three stone-cold classic songs that will waft through the cosmos long after the sun has burned out: the truly haunting "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" from 1976's Agents of Fortune, the pummeling "Godzilla" from 1977's Spectres and the hypnotically melodic "Burnin' for You" from 1981's Fire of Unknown Origin. The intense creative vision of BÖC's original core duo of vocalist/lead guitarist Donald "Buck Dharma" Roeser and vocalist/rhythm guitarist Eric Bloom are complemented by Richie Castellano on guitar and keyboards, and the longtime rhythm section of bass guitarist Kasim Sulton and drummer Jules Radino. BÖC has always maintained a relentless touring schedule that brings new songs and classics to everyone from original fans to, as Bloom puts it, "teenagers with green hair."

Blotto - Alive at Five (5:00 PM)
Jennings Landing Amphitheatre at the Corning Preserve
Legendary live performers, clever musical satirists and music video pioneers, Albany's Blotto made quite a splash when the clip for their now-classic ode to summer "I Wanna Be a Lifeguard" aired nationally on MTV's first day of operation. The band spent years thrilling packed houses up and down the East Coast with hysterical high-energy shows that were part rock-and-roll and part improv comedy before going their separate ways in 1984 (although they never really called it quits - as guitarist Broadway Blotto puts it, "breaking up's too much trouble.") A chance meeting with Blue Öyster Cult's Buck Dharma led to the infamous 1982 "Blot and Blue" arena tour, as well as a collaboration on the song "Metalhead" on Blotto's 1982 LP Combo Akimbo, with Buck playing lead guitar and producing and appearing in the hit video. Blotto and BÖC shared the Alive at Five stage back in 1996; don't miss this special encore of a classic pairing, nearly 20 years in the making!

Eric Paslay-Vapor Live (7:00 PM)
Vapor Night Club-Saratoga Casino and Raceway
Born in Abilene, Texas and raised in Waco and Temple. By the age of 16, Paslay had already written and recorded 10 songs that he played out around Texas. When Paslay moved to Nashville to pursue a music career, he eventually landed his own deal with the Cal IV in 2006. His songwriting and his impressive voice began garnering attention from labels and he signed with EMI Records Nashville. Paslay says he began writing songs because he wanted to sing them for people. "I turn it on when I get on stage. I love to entertain," says Paslay. Fans who have seen him on stage will testify there is so much more to the tall, Texas redhead than his excellent songwriting ability. Paslay is a charismatic performer and a potent vocalist who knows how to connect with an audience. As his hit singles "Friday Night" and "Song About A Girl" reach the upper level of the charts, Paslay has arrived as an artist in his own right.

An Acoustic Evening with Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt (8:00 PM)
Troy Savings Bank Music Hall, 30 2nd St, Troy
An Acoustic Evening with Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt at the Music Hall is a rare opportunity to hear these two iconic musicians together on-stage in the intimate, acoustically brilliant Troy Savings Bank Music Hall. <br /> <br />A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of Americana, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Whether touring as a 'Duo' or with his 'Acoustic Group' or 'The Large Band', Lovett's live performances show not only the breadth of this Texas legend's deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences, making him one of the most infectious and fascinating musicians in popular music. Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has evolved into one of music's most vibrant and iconic performers. His oeuvre, rich and eclectic, is one of the most beloved of any living artist working today. <br /> <br />John Hiatt's career as a performer and songwriter has spanned more than 30 years and everyone from Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, BB King, Bonnie Raitt, and Iggy Pop has covered his work. The Los Angeles Times calls him "...one of rock's most astute singer-songwriters of the last 40 years," after the release of his newest album Terms Of My Surrender, last summer via New West Records. Hiatt, a master lyricist and satirical storyteller, weaves hidden plot twists into fictional tales ranging in topics including redemption, relationships, growing older and surrendering, on his terms. This new record is musically rooted in acoustic blues, accentuated by Hiatt's soulful, gritty voice, which mirrors the gravity of his reflective lyrics.

"Pure entertainment", "Magisterial", "The best musical entertainment in the country", "A much loved National Institution", are some of the things audience members and reviewers have said in attempting to encapsulate the indefinable magic and atmosphere of all round good humour, light heartedness, well being and joy which permeate the live concerts.

Palace Theater, 19 Clinton Avenue, Albany, NY 12207
Legendary musician and songwriter Mark Knopfler will celebrate the release of his new record, Tracker with a North American tour that includes a stop at Albany's Palace Theatre. <br /> <br />Says Knopfler, 'Part of the fun is thinking what you might have a go at, for a new tour. For me, that's part of the joy of it, getting that little crew together again, and setting sail once again. It's a real adventure.' Knopfler has always viewed touring as the final part of the process running from songwriting through recording and ending up on the road performing old and new songs. He now writes more music while actually on the road. <br /> <br />A multiple Grammy award winner as the lead vocalist and songwriter for Dire Straits, Knopfler has released seven solo albums as well as recording Neck And Neck with one of his guitar heroes, Chet Atkins and collaborated with Emmylou Harris on All The Roadrunning. He has created soundtracks for Local Hero and The Princess Bride and is currently working on a new film, Altamira. In addition to producing his own records Knopfler has also produced albums for Bob Dylan and Randy Newman amongst others. He was made an OBE in 1999 and was given the prestigious 'Lifetime Achievement Award' at the Ivor Novellos in 2012.
