Adam Ezra, Black Mountain Symphony, and Acoustic Trauma at the Putnam Den (9:00 PM)
Putnam Den, 63A Putnam Street Saratoga Springs, NY
The Adam Ezra Group (AEG) is not just a band; they are a force to be reckoned with musically, personally and socially. Selling records and tickets is important to AEG, but they are committed to changing the world with their songs and their actions along the way. Ezra and his band are activists and community leaders as much as they are musicians and songwriters. Ezra has spent time living out of a van, farming in Canada, volunteering for the relief effort in Kosovo, and practicing environmental geography in South Africa. Whether as a kitchen hand or carpenter, teacher, athlete, or traveler, Ezra crams it all into the music, always challenging our perspective and often teetering somewhere between the ballsy rocker and sensitive poet. Through their non profit organization, RallySound, AEG helps people organize live music events that inspire communities and encourage grassroots activism. <br /> <br />Black Mountain Symphony showcases an eclectic range of influences, blended together to create their own special sound. From baroque classical violin and haunting folk-tinged ballads to funk-rock drums and hard-hitting dance numbers, the five piece band sprinkles their live sets with hints of everything from classical music to bits of Motown, blues and jazz. <br /> <br />Welcome to the original sound of Acoustic Trauma. Try to imagine the crisp sound of an acoustic guitar accompanied by a powerful rhythm section. Now add the variables of massive experimentation along with mysterious lyrics and mood-enhancing visual effects. Following the example of the "classic rock" genre, Acoustic Trauma aims to provide a complete entertainment experience for their audience.

In May, 2012, The Irish Echo stated, "Liam Left the Lights On Again...in it's entirety is simply a delight to listen to" and in January, 2008, the Kingston, New York Freeman Times declared, "Hair Of The Dog plays with a cohesive oneness that most bands never get. They are a regional music treasure." The Dog was also mentioned in Billboard Magazine as one of Irish Music's biggest sellers. Their song "One Sunday Morning" was featured on the 2003 Colleen Records compilation CD "Songs of Irish Freedom Vol. 3". In 2005 they appeared on "One Child At Time", a charity compilation. Other artists included U2, James Taylor, The Chieftains and Carly Simon. Hair Of The Dog has repeatedly been named "Best Band" since the late 1990's, by Upstate New York's top regional newspapers and magazines. <br /> <br />Based in Upstate New York, Hair Of The Dog is Rick Bedrosian (bass and vocals), Larry Packer (fiddle), Eric Finn (electric guitar, mandolin, violin and vocals), Brian Gibney (acoustic guitar and vocals) and Joe Morizio (drums). The band members boast impressive resumes. Larry Packer was a member of Sha Na Na, had a top ten hit with a Jimi Hendrix produced band called Cat Mother and the All Night News Boys and appeared with The Band in Martin Scorsese's "The Last Waltz". He also guested on NBC's Saturday Night Live's third episode which originally aired October 25th, 1975. Packer's name appears on albums and playbills from other major acts including Hall and Oates, Lou Reed, Phoebe Snow and the New York Rock Ensemble.

Music Without Borders: A Celebration & Concert (7:30 PM)
Palace Theatre, 19 Clinton Ave., Albany
On May 21 at the Palace Theatre in Albany, New York we will come together to celebrate Music Without Borders as Empire State Youth Orchestras' (ESYO) CHIME kids take to the stage for their first-ever public concert alongside ESYO's Empire State Wind Orchestra, and signature Empire State Youth Orchestra. Music can transcend the boundaries between communities. With the launch of ESYO's CHIME last year, at no time in its history has ESYO made the benefits of music more readily available to children from all walks of life. CHIME provides free, daily, and intensive music instruction to 40 Capital Region children living in some the region's most economically disadvantaged areas, giving kids access to a transformative music education experience they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. <br />The concert will be a series of ESYO "firsts" as the CHIME Musicians make their first public performance, the Youth Orchestra and Wind Orchestra perform on the same evening for the first time in ESYO history, and the Youth Orchestra performs the world premier of Clint Needham's Free Radicals-a piece specially commissioned for the orchestra's upcoming tour of Portugal this summer. Tickets are $23 for adults and $13 for students and seniors. They can be purchased through the Palace Theatre Box Office or by calling (518) 465-3334. <br />The concert will be preceded by a Celebration of Youth at 5:30 p.m. in the Palace Theatre atrium. This event will include wine and light fare, and the opportunity to support ESYO as it takes its next steps to bring exceptional music education to even more children. Tickets to this event are $75 (includes concert admission). Tickets to the Celebration can be purchased through ESYO or by calling (518) 382-7581. Additional event sponsorship information can be found at esyo.org. With your support, we hope to more than double the number of children in CHIME by 2017 and bring ESYO to new levels of membership and performance. Come and support the future of music!

Joywave at The Hollow (8:00 PM)
The Hollow Bar + Kitchen, 79 North Pearl Street Albany, NY, 12207
They're smart. They're funny. They're in a band. Wait, there's more. Joywave are five hardened criminals from Rochester, NY, making conceptual, humorously self-aware indie pop that's both meta and personal, retro and cutting edge, all-ages and sophisticated. To step inside a Joywave song is to lose yourself in a thoughtfully-curated, tech-savvy synthesis of emotions, genres and random noise, blended into an eminently danceable DIY sound smoothie. Add to that an energetic and seamless live performance (as Rolling Stone said of their 2014 Lollapalooza show, "Joywave brought the disco to the forest") not to mention lead singer Daniel Armbruster's unforgettable mustache, and the result is a buzz that won't stop growing.

Rich Ortiz's style is truly his own and his music is his soul. Ortiz, never a wallflower, believes he is the product of his family's cultural diversity and strengths. Since the age of seventeen he's focused all of his talents and time on his acoustic solo act, if you can call it that. Rich plays guitar, harmonica, and peddle bass (with his feet), and he turns heads with his vocals! He has opened shows for CHICAGO,REO Speedwagon,STYX, Ted Nugent, Ludacris, Hoobastank,KC and the sunshine band, Jeffrey Gaines, Ryan Montbleau Band, The Wood Brothers,Robert Randolph and the family band, Tea Leaf Green,Zach Deputy, Kracker, Merl Saunders, Melvin Seals, Jim Weider and the Drifters. <br /> <br />Inspired by artists like Jim Croce, James Taylor, The Beatles, Stevie Wonder and Willie Nelson, he says "I feel I have to change every gig around in order to grow as a musician." He plays six and twelve string acoustic guitar and chooses not to cultivate a target audience. He thinks "ideally the feeling of people who leave the room or listen to your CD should be one of making someone's day. What comes out of your tongue says a lot about your soul."

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.

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.
