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!

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."

Bob Schneider (8:00 AM)

Bob Schneider's fellow Texans as well as his rabid U.S. fanbase will testify to his abilities, as he has become the most awarded singer songwriter in Austin's history, winning over thirty Austin Music Awards. His scruffy good looks and strong, husky voice provide a good complement to his semi-confessional songwriting. The real beauty of Schneider's artistic career is about the freedom to constantly write, record and stockpile songs. While he's already released hundreds of songs with his bands, Schneider estimates there were at least a thousand songs that didn't fit his band's concepts.

Art on the Mountain - Art Show (10:00 AM - 4:00 PM)
Grant Cottage Historic Site, Wilton, NY
Almost immediately upon the establishment of Mt. McGregor as a resort destination, artists and art began appearing on the mountain. At one time there stood an Art Gallery on the mountain showcasing the works of well-known American artists such as Albert Bierstadt and Thomas Moran. Throughout the years and amidst many changes, artists both renowned and unknown have continued to leave their mark. Ulysses Grant, once a young artist himself, understood the draw Mt. McGregor's beautiful setting could have on an artistic soul. Those freedoms of artistic expression exhibited on the mountain pay tribute to a man who devoted his life to guarding those freedoms and to his final majestic mountaintop home. Join us as we celebrate and continue this legacy of art on the mountain through showcasing the wonderful work of local artists at the inspiring location of Grant's Cottage on Mt. McGregor. If you are an artist we invite you to bring your supplies, find inspiration on the mountain and help keep the legacy alive. Featured artists/presenters include: Jay Freud (Photography), Vicki Feldman (Textiles/Quilts), Lynn Benevento (ADK Paintings), Tim Dobert (Paintings), Gail Squillace (Glass Art), Robert Gullie (Mixed Media/Collage Art), Janet Flinchbaugh (Textiles/Floorcloths), Ron Sweet (Historic Prints).

The Glimmerglass Festival, Cooperstown, NY
Passion and politics collide in Vivaldi's exquisite setting of Metastasio's poetic depiction of Cato the Younger. <br /> <br />"I love the early operas. The Vivaldi masterwork Catone in Utica is especially enthralling with its spectacular instrumentation that feels new and edgy and always exhilarating," director Tazewell Thompson said. "Complex and conflicted characters are passionately expressing their story through brilliant vocals with highly entertaining flourishes and ornamentations. Sublime." <br /> <br />The production will be presented in Italian with projected English text.

The Philadelphia Orchestra Finale will feature a power and intensity appropriate to say good-bye for another year. The program will include stirring Russian Romantic works: Glazunov's "Autumn" from The Seasons, Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 2, and Rachmaninoff's Prelude in C-sharp minor, orchestrated by former Philadelphia Orchestra Music Director Leopold Stokowski. In addition to the works of the highly respected old masters, the Finale program will also include the artistry of up-and-coming classical musicians. Joining the Orchestra for the Piano Concerto is 22-year-old pianist BEATRICE RANA, described by Gramophone Magazine as "an old soul that belies her twenty years, [possessing] more than a touch of genius." The program will also feature Mixed Messages, the newest work of critically acclaimed contemporary composer Nico Muhly, whose recent work also includes commissions by the Metropolitan Opera, the New York Philharmonic, and New York City Ballet. Mixed Messages, commissioned by The Philadelphia Orchestra, will have its world premiere in May 2015 in Philadelphia and its New York premiere at Carnegie Hall, and will be one of the works performed on the Orchestra's 2015 Tour of Europe.

Mopco Presents Tonight Show Regular Dion Flynn In ''The Only Brown Kid In The Trailer Park'' (7:00 PM)
GE Theatre at Proctors, 432 State St, Schenectady, NY
Late night TV devotees are non-partisan fans of Dion Flynn as President Barack Obama. A fixture on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and "The Tonight Show," Flynn brings a new level of comedy to the highest office in the land. Many area residents know Dion from his days as a student at SCCC and SUNY Albany. You can see him in person, and still get to bed on time, when he comes to Schenectady August 30. <br /> <br />The Mop & Bucket Co,, Proctors improv company in residence, is delighted to present the Schenectady premiere of Flynn's new one-man show, "The Only Brown Kid In The Trailer Park." <br /> <br />Jimmy Fallon has described Flynn as, "One of the funniest guys I know." Flynn's autobiographical show is the story of his journey from growing up the only bi-racial kid in a trailer park--- where he quickly developed a sense of humor--- to appearing as the first black President on national television. <br /> <br />In addition to his regular appearances on "The Tonight Show," Flynn is a member of The Peoples Improv Theatre, which has been voted New York's best comedy venue by New York Magazine and Time Out NY. He is the co-star of "Clanging With Josh And Dion" with Josh Radnor of "How I Met Your Mother" fame. More than "just" a comedian, Dion earned his MFA in Acting from New York University's prestigious Tisch School of the Arts. His theatrical history includes performances with Shakespeare in the Park, The Public Theater and The Guthrie Theater. <br /> <br />The Mop & Bucket Co., (Mopco) has been the improv company in residence at Proctors since 2007. Mopco co-director Kat Koppett and Dion are old friends--Dion has worked with Mopco's corporate wing, Koppett & Co., as a trainer, improviser, and actor a number of times, and has taught master classes for Mopco several times in the past.

The American Roots Series At The Linda Presents: Peter Case (8:00 PM)
The Linda - WAMC's Performing Arts Center, 339 Central Ave, Albany, NY 12206
Hosted by songwriter, roots scholar and multi-instrumentalist MichaelEck <br /> <br />Peter Case is a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and producer, a mighty fine guitarist and a well-reviewed published author and yet, he's most at home on the stage. For 25 years, Peter, his guitar and his songs have mesmerized audiences from coast to coast, whether holding down a festival crowd, warming up the place for luminaries like Jackson Browne and John Prine or headlining his own nightclub shows -- of which he can claimed to have logged thousands. <br /> <br />The American Roots Series at The Linda traces our musical family tree back to the source. The program, hosted by songwriter, roots scholar and multi-instrumentalist Michael Eck, is an examination of the varied musical styles that make up our country's rich cultural history. In simple terms, roots music, a phrase coined in the mid-90s, is a catch-all reference for new sounds derived from old styles; for music handed down from generation to generation. Blues, country, gospel, jazz and early rock & roll qualify as branches, with a wider canopy covering Cajun, Zydeco, Tejano and Native American chants and dances. Like its close relative "folk music," which was popularized by such greats as Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie and Phil Ochs, roots music tells stories of the "hopes, sorrows and convictions of ordinary people's everyday lives."

With special guest Chuck Cannon <br /> <br />The Linda is pleased to welcome her back Antje Duvekot. "Duvekot has gotten hotter, faster than any local songwriter in recent memory. Her songs feel at once fresh faced and firmly rooted, driven by the whispery sensuality of her voice. She believes in the redemptive power of the shared secret; and is utterly unafraid to mine the darkest corners of her life for songs that turn fear into resilience and isolation into community". The Boston Globe <br /> <br />Antje Duvekot has solidified her reputation as one of Boston's top singer songwriters with "Big Dream Boulevard" her debut studio release and "the Near Demise of the Highwire Dancer" and "New Siberia" her follow-up albums. The debut CD was produced by Seamus Egan, founder of the Irish super group, SOLAS and the project was released on songwriter Ellis Paul's label and quickly attracted international attention for Antje. It was voted "#1 Folk Release of 2006" by the Boston Globe and was named to the "Top10 Releases of the Year" by National Public Radio's, Folk Alley. Her follow up albums "the Near Demise of the Highwire Dancer" and "New Siberia" were produced by Richard Shindell and along side with Richard feature other "folk royalty" such as John Gorka, Lucy Kaplancky and Mark Erelli.

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.

Hot Club of Saratoga (8:00 PM)
The Linda - WAMC's Performing Arts Center, 339 Central Ave, Albany, NY 12206
Hot Club of Saratoga, upstate New York Saratoga/Capital Regions's premiere gypsy swing quintet, plays a repertoire that reflects the spirit and style originated by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in The Quintet of the Hot Club of France most prominent in the 1930's and kept alive through a long line of gypsy jazz artists since that time. Most of the tunes we play were either written by, or recorded by, Django at some time in his musical life. <br /> <br />Though Django is most closely associated with the quintet and with Stephane Grappelli on violin providing the other solo texture, he recorded in various other configurations. He often recorded with a clarinetist in place of Grappelli and his violin, as well as with big bands, and with on some occasions with small combos with drums as he began to explore amplification and more bebop stylings. <br /> <br />The instrumentation of the full quintet of the Hot Club of Saratoga, solo and rhythm guitars, string bass, violin, and clarinet/sax, allows us to explore this style throughout the range of its roots. Since forming in early 2013, Hot Club of Saratoga has brought the hot swing sound to coffee houses, restaurants, bars, clubs, swing dances, festivals, weddings, and numerous private parties. If you're looking for gypsy swing true to its origins while subtly expanding the genre, music that just makes you smile and move, give us a listen.

Steve Forbert (8:00 PM)
The Linda - WAMC's Performing Arts Center, 339 Central Ave, Albany, NY 12206
Thirty-five years after Steve Forbert's first release, Alive on Arrival, the muse of a true romantic continues to burn. Over With You, his 14th studio album, points out the lyrical brilliance of Forbert, an expert in capturing the essence of human interaction since bursting onto the global music scene in 1978. Forbert says, "The album's very personal, mainly about the friction in relationships...as in mine." His debut album, Alive On Arrival, now considered a classic, was recently featured in the book Please Allow Me To Introduce Myself. <br /> <br />Originally from Meridian, Miss., he traveled to New York in 1976 and played for spare change in Grand Central Station while seeking work in the local folk venues. The crowds at CBGB's accepted his performances as much as the audiences in traditional clubs and theaters. <br /> <br />He vaulted to international prominence with his second album, Jackrabbit Slim, which went gold behind the hit single, "Romeo's Tune", and his tribute to Jimmie Rodgers, Any Old Time, was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2004. "I didn't invent folk-rock or country rock, I was keeping a particular American tradition alive," Forbert says. Forbert's lengthy discography has established him as an American treasure.
