The Allen Street Spring Cask Tap! (4:00 PM - 2:00 AM)
Allen Street Pub - 332 Allen Street, Albany, NY
The Allen Street Pub will be rolling out the barrels and serving-up a full weekend of the world's best cask-conditioned ale at their Spring Cask Tap! They'll be offering a line-up of 9+ cask-conditioned ales-the most ever available in the Capital Region at one time. <br /> <br />The event starts at 4pm on Friday, March 27th and continues through Sunday night, March, 29th, at their 332 Allen Street location (corner of Allen Street and New Scotland Avenue, across from St. Peter's Hospital) in Albany. <br /> <br />What is cask-conditioned ale? <br /> <br />Simply put, cask-conditioned, or cask ale, is beer that has been naturally carbonated in low volume (5 to 10 gallon) barrels. The unfiltered, unpressurized beer contains live yeast which creates a gentle, natural carbonation and allows malt and hop flavors to fully develop. This results in a richer tasting glass of beer with more character and nuance than standard kegged beer. <br /> <br />Paul Engel, owner of the Allen Street Pub, is passionate about cask ale. He says, "We try to make cask ale as 'normal' as regular draught beer by offering three different varieties every day of the week. We love the tradition, and we're the only place in the Capital Region that is regularly offering a variety of cask ales." He continues, "Our Cask Tap events are a great way to show off some of the best cask ale from all over the world-even from our own backyard!" <br /> <br />Among the cask ales at the Spring Cask Tap will be Dark Star Original Old Ale, Hobson's Postman's Knock Dark Ale (both from the U.K), and Cuveé Alex Le Rouge, a Jurassian Imperial Stout from Brassie de Franches-Montagnes of Switzerland-all previously unavailable in the Capital Region. Also to be tapped are New York-brewed cask ale favorites from Green Wolf Brewing Company, Argyle Brewing Company, Community Beer Works, and Wolf Hollow Brewing Company. Wandering Star Brewing Company of Pittsfield, Massachusetts will be filling a special oak cask for the event, as well. <br /> <br />For more information, or questions about the Allen Street Spring Cask Tap, please contact Paul Engle at (518) 391-9258. <br /> <br />The Allen Street Pub is located at 332 Allen Street in Albany, and open noon to 2 am, seven days a week. Must be 21 or older to attend.

Freedman. The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its re-creation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits. This Enchanted Edition is based on the 1997 teleplay.
Cost: $5, $7, $12

Coffeehouse of the Absurd with John Forster and Mike Agranoff (8:00 PM - 10:00 PM)
Caffe Lena
These two masters of the comic song will invade the historic Caffe Lena venue for a night of brilliant buffoonery. John Forster obviously fell asleep one too many times as a child to the sound of his Tom Lehrer albums. This is evidenced by his twisted sense of humor, his delightfully skewed view of the human condition, and his prodigious skills as a pianist. His songs have a knack for taking the plausible but improbable, and leading that to its implausible but inevitable conclusion by way of unlikely rhymes, horrible puns, and ironic satire. John is a very funny man, and this will be a very funny show. <br /> Adept on concertina and piano, Mike Agranoff's prime instrument is the guitar, upon which he shines with intricate fingerstyle arrangements. In addition to his instrument prowess he'll add to this show his uproariously funny topical tunes and delightfully horrible parodies.
Cost: $15 Advance / $20 Door

Freedman. The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its re-creation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits. This Enchanted Edition is based on the 1997 teleplay.

Rebecca Alexander ''Not Fade Away'' (4:00 PM)
Northshire Bookstore, 424 Broadway Saratoga Springs, New York 12866
Even a darkening world can be brilliantly lit from within. Born with a rare genetic mutation, Rebecca Alexander has been simultaneously losing both her sight and hearing since she was a child. Then, at 18, a fall from a window left her athletic body completely shattered. In Not Fade Away, Rebecca tells her extraordinary story, by turns harrowing, funny and inspiring. She meditates on what she's lost-from the sound of a whisper to seeing a sky full of stars, and what she's found in return-an exquisite sense of intimacy with those she is closest to, a love of silence, a profound gratitude for everything she still has, and a joy in simple pleasures that most of us forget to notice.

David Mayfield Parade (7:00 PM - 9:00 PM)
Caffe Lena
"...a dynamic combination of music and comedy worthy of a traveling vaudeville act." - The Boston Globe <br /> "A massively skilled picker and singer with a knack for stagecraft." -Nashville Scene <br /> If you've seen David Mayfield perform with The Avett Brothers, Mumford & Sons, Jessica Lea Mayfield, or at Bonnaroo, you've caught the charisma, the heart, and the comedy, and it's likely you'll come back for more. This singer-songwriter, band leader, and Grammy nominated producer stepped out of the sideman shadows with his 2011 album "The David Mayfield Parade." Strangers, his new Compass Records release, is a tour de force, stretching from the avant-garde to Mayfield's musical roots, which are buried deep in the bluegrass tradition from a childhood of touring with his family's band. Mayfield posseses a deadly combination of infectious energy and songwriting chops that only come around once in a blue moon.

The Wrecking Crew (7:00 PM - 9:00 PM)
Spectrum 8 Theatre 290 Delaware Ave. Albany
skype Q&A with director Denny Tedesco following the film! <br />ONE SHOW ONLY: Thursday, April 2nd at 7pm <br />What the Funk Brothers did for Motown...The Wrecking Crew did, only bigger, for the West Coast Sound. Six years in a row in the 1960's and early 1970's, the Grammy for "Record of the Year" went to Wrecking Crew recordings. And now, THE WRECKING CREW tells the story in pictures and that oh, so glorious sound. The favorite songs of a generation are all here, presented by the people who made them for you. THE WRECKING CREW is a documentary film produced and directed by Denny Tedesco, son of legendary late Wrecking Crew guitarist Tommy Tedesco. The film tells the story of the unsung musicians that provided the backbeat, the bottom and the swinging melody that drove many of the number one hits of the 1960's. It didn't matter if it was Nat "King" Cole, Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra, The Monkees, The Byrds or The Beach Boys, these dedicated musicians brought the flair and musicianship that made the American "west coast sound" a dominant cultural force around the world. The film is a fun and moving tribute from Denny to his father and to the music, the times and to the secret star-making machine known only as "The Wrecking Crew".

Robert Randolph & The Family Band (9:00 PM)
Putnam Den
When Robert Randolph talks about his new album, Lickety Split, a few words come up over and over-"joy," "freedom," "energy." Which is no surprise, really, because those are the same things that immediately spring into a listener's mind when these twelve tracks from the virtuoso pedal steel guitarist and his longtime accompanists, the Family Band, explode out of the speakers. <br /> <br />"My thing is really upbeat, uptempo, with great guitar riffs," says Randolph, summarizing his musical ambitions, "but also catchy choruses and lyrics that someday will make this music into classic tunes." <br /> <br />"Robert Randolph is an American Original," says Don Was, President of Randolph's new label, Blue Note Records. "He has mastered what is, arguably, the most complex instrument in the world and developed a unique voice that is equal parts street-corner church and Bonnaroo. This album finally captures the energy and excitement of his legendary live performances." <br /> <br />Robert Randolph & The Family Band first gained national attention with the release of the album Live at the Wetlands in 2002. The band followed with three studio recordings over the next eight years-Unclassified, Colorblind, and We Walk This Road-which, together with tireless touring and unforgettable performances at such festivals as Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, won them an expanding and passionate fan base. Randolph's unprecedented prowess on his instrument garnered him a spot on Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" list, and also attracted the attention of such giants as Eric Clapton and Carlos Santana, who have collaborated with him on stage and in the studio. <br /> <br />"What I've learned from being around those guys-and you never really notice it until the moment is away from you-is that it's really important to them that someone keeps original music going, that you're not just trying to be like everybody else," he says. "Eric really wants to know what's going on now, he's always going 'Show me that lick again!'-they're like little kids, and that's really the great part about it. It makes me think that I need to keep getting better, to stay excited and keep trying to be innovative and keep growing." <br /> <br />Dave Spadaro Group Opens the show.

Yarn - Roots Music Festival 2015 (8:00 PM)
The Linda - WAMC's Performing Arts Center, 339 Central Ave, Albany, NY 12206
THE AMERICAN ROOTS SERIES AT THE LINDA PRESENTS: <br />Roots Music Festival 2015 <br /> <br /> <br />Featuring <br /> <br />YARN <br /> <br /> <br />also appearing The Mt. Olive Baptist Church male Chorus, Red Haired Strangers, The Doornails and Matt Durfee <br /> <br />Hosted by songwriter, roots scholar and multi-instrumentalist Michael Eck <br /> <br />YARN Since their start in 2007, Yarn's original Americana sound has developed into music that seekers of the unique see as the soundtrack to their lives. Yarn's albums were recognized by the AMA's and R&R radio charts, spending time in the top 5 at their highest point. Yarn has become one of the hardest-working and harder-touring bands for this generation's digital natives and new music folllowers. <br /> <br />inspired by today's music devotee's hunger for artists to believe in and follow, they are giving it to the fans everyday in everyway possible. Yarn's devotion to their fans is realized in online and social sharing of their music, whether it's daily video posts, premiering fresh songs on local radio, or performing live in small town venues across the country. They are bringing songs to American music lovers, and the music lovers are responding. <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." <br />Michael Eck: <br /> <br /> <br />All five programs of the American Roots Series at The Linda will be hosted by Michael Eck who plays 78 rpm music for the 21st century with Ramblin Jug Stompers; Historic American Music with Lost Radio Rounders; and performs solo under his own name and as Ukulele Mike. Eck, who has shared stages with Pete Seeger, Patti Smith and Peter Case, has also spread the word about roots music to important venues like Caffe Lena, Old Songs, The Dance Flurry, The Eighth Step, The Electric City Ukulele Festival and Jalopy Theatre and School of Music. <br /> <br />The American Roots Series is made possible by the support of the New York Council on The Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Won (Much Ado) (7:00 PM)
Spectrum 8 Theatre, 290 Delaware Avenue, Albany, NY 12209
TWO SHOWS ONLY: Sunday, April 5th at noon & Monday, April 6th at 7pm! <br />Autumn 1918. A group of soldiers return from the trenches. The world-weary Benedick and his friend Claudio find themselves reacquainted with Beatrice and Hero. As memories of conflict give way to a life of parties and masked balls, Claudio and Hero fall madly, deeply in love, while Benedick and Beatrice reignite their own altogether more combative courtship. <br />Shakespeare's comic romance plays out amidst the brittle high spirits of a post-war house party, as youthful passions run riot, lovers are deceived and happiness is threatened - before peace ultimately wins the day. <br />Christopher Luscombe directs the second of Shakespeare's matching pair of comedies that rejoice in our capacity to find love in the most unlikely places. Better known as Much Ado About Nothing, the play is performed under the title Love's Labour's Won, a name possibly given to it during Shakespeare's lifetime.

ONE SHOW ONLY: Wednesday, April 8th at 7pm! <br />From first rehearsal to world premiere, this highly regarded film takes us backstage at New York City Ballet as Justin Peck, a young up-and-coming choreographer, crafts a new work.

New York City Ballet, under the artistic direction of Ballet Master in Chief Peter Martins, boasts a roster of more than 90 elite dancers and a repertory of works by many of the greatest choreographers in the history of the art form.

With unprecedented access to an elite world, the film follows Peck as he collaborates with musicians, lighting designers, costume designers and his fellow dancers to create Paz de la Jolla, NYCB's 422nd new ballet.

Turkuaz w/ Big Mean Sound Machine (9:00 PM)
Putnam Den
Credible bios are supposed to be objective and not full of superlatives and hyperbole, but it's hard to avoid gushing when the subject is a funk army of multi-instrumentals and singers that is part freight train and part tyrannosaurus rex, who-even on an off night-can blow away a room on the basis of sheer physics alone. That's one way to describe Turkuaz, but it doesn't address the music. In this regard, as with any band, influences are everything. One cannot escape them as one seeks to carve out a unique sound for themselves. Still, there are so many benefits to having Sly & The Family Stone, Rick James, Parliament and Bohannon in your record collection. With this as the basis for a recipe, Turkuaz adds healthy doses of jittery, world-pop-power groove-reminiscent of Remain In Light era Talking Heads-and a passion for Motown and R&B, resulting in a refreshing twist on the funk idiom. <br /> <br />Turkuaz certainly does have sheer size in their favor, but when broken down into the basic components, each stands out on their own. Founders Dave Brandwein and Taylor Shell had the cream of the crop to choose from at Berklee, but making it happen as a large touring ensemble takes more than chops: it takes the right blend of personalities. When Turkuaz takes the stage the chemistry is clear. The special combination of elements-singers in sequined dresses, guys in tails (or sometimes all of them in jumpsuits or other complimentary outfits) horns, keys, guitars, amps and drums and smiles all around... well, it's easy to get caught up in the explosive auditory and visual circus and find oneself dancing. Despite all of the gear and people on stage, it is becomes clear that it is not the size that matters here: it is performance. <br /> <br />Through constant touring and great festival performances, Turkuaz has built a solid, passionate coast-to-coast fan base that grows with every mile driven and each night on stage. They are currently criss-crossing North America in support of their third independent release, Future 86, and have plans to conquer the world... or at least shake the walls and all the booties in every room they play... <br /> <br /> <br />BIG MEAN SOUND MACHINE <br /> <br />Big Mean Sound Machine formed in 2009 in Ithaca, New York with one goal: to create music that stimulates both Body AND Mind. Today, BMSM's collective of over 15 analog artists spread out over the East Coast United States bring together musical languages of West Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean and North America to create a lush bed of rhythm and harmony that embraces even the most hardcore fans of both Traditional Funk and Avant-Garde Jazz - and everyone in between! Anyone who has witnessed Big Mean Sound Machine live knows that their performances are among the heaviest and the sweatiest. Those familiar with BMSM studio releases also knows that they can refine the complex sonic force of over a dozen individuals with style and clarity. The Big Mean Sound Machine maintains a busy performance schedule, captivating cities all over the United States. For those like us who are tired of the status quo, there is good news: THE BIG MEAN SOUND MACHINE HAS OFFICIALLY ARRIVED.

Food For Thought is a monthly evening of food, film and discussion with a focus on films of social, political, environmental and community interest. Held on the third Thursday of each month, the night will feature food samples by Honest Weight Food Co-op, a feature film screening, and an open panel discussion. <br /> <br />This Months Film: THE STARFISH THROWERS By turns both poignant and heartwarming, The Starfish Throwers explores how three of the world's most fiercely compassionate individuals fight hunger and struggle to restore hope to the hopeless in unexpected and sometimes dangerous ways. Half a world apart, a five-star chef, a retired school teacher and a sixth-grade master gardener fight for a seemingly lost cause -- until they discover their impact may reach further than their actions. <br /> <br />This evenings musical performer <br /> <br />JACK EMPIE <br /> <br />Jack Empie began playing guitar spontaneously on a Christmas Day when he discovered a guitar (intended for his younger brother) under the tree. Jack went on to study music at Berkley College and Towson University. His diverse range makes it difficult to place his music in a particular genre but his personal voice is discernible to even an unsophisticated listener. Jack has worked as a professional musician in bands and as a solo performer since he was a teenager. His passion for music is infectious because of his joy in sharing and relating it others. He is presently working to release a new CD and continues to perform at various local venues.

Caroline Rose (8:00 PM)
The Linda - WAMC's Performing Arts Center, 339 Central Ave, Albany, NY 12206
Caroline Rose brings a healthy dose of attitude. She's punky and witty, with a style teetering on rockabilly in its stripped-down, bluesy way. Her sound draws mostly Americana and folk comparisons, with quick-talking lyrical delivery and full-bodied instrumentation. Caroline Rose's saddle shoes scream fun, but her lyrics tell some serious stories. Her 2014 debut album I Will Not Be Afraid spins stories with a sense of adventure, a certain badass swagger, and devil-may-care attitude and the same thing she brings to every performance. <br /> <br />Sometimes epic failures produce epic results. With the release of her new album I Will Not Be Afraid, keen-eyed young singer-songwriter Caroline Rose has broken her long string of short-circuits with a live-wire national debut that draws on her roots in rockabilly, vintage country and blues to capture her unique and personal vision.

The April Verch Band CD Release Concert (8:00 PM)
The Linda - WAMC's Performing Arts Center, 339 Central Ave, Albany, NY 12206
April Verch has never sounded more comfortable in her skin than she does now, in the second decade of her career as an internationally touring Canadian fiddler, step dancer and singer-songwriter. Her ninth album,Bright Like Gold, captures a woman who's fleshed out her identity and is in full command of her gifts, a woman who's grown from a prodigy into an enduring artist -- one of music's most unforgiving public transitions -- with grace and grit to spare. <br /> <br /> <br />The April Verch Band -- rounded out by bassist and clawhammer banjo player Cody Walters and guitarist Hayes Griffin, who has a Masters in jazz improv from the New England Conservatory -- is an energetic, virtuosic, tradition-celebrating outfit, not to mention one that's not soon <br />forgotten when they depart the stage. It doesn't hurt that the thrilling grand finale involves Verch fiddling and step dancing -- and often executing two entirely different intricate rhythmic patterns -- at once.

Heather Maloney Album Release Tour With Will Dailey (8:00 PM)
The Linda - WAMC's Performing Arts Center, 339 Central Ave, Albany, NY 12206
Heather Maloney is an American singer-songwriter who has received numerous accolades for her startlingly soulful voice and literate songwriting exploring themes of spirituality, transformation, and impermanence. Critics are quickly discovering Maloney's talent with No Depression raving "Her music is riveting, her voice adventurous, her lyrics thought-provoking..." while Blurt Magazine wrote "Heather Maloney is one of the most talented tradition-based singer-songwriters I've heard in some time...the writing is stunning." <br /> <br />If there's a typical path to becoming a songwriter, Maloney didn't follow it. Although she went to school for music and had done plenty of singing, she only began writing tunes a few years ago after living and working for three years in a silent-retreat meditation center in central Massachusetts. "The biggest motivating factor in writing was probably the experiences that I was having here in my meditation practice," she says. "There was the difficulty of it, the suffering of it, and wanting to channel that into something creative, and on the positive side, the insights that came out of my experiences." <br /> <br />Maloney enjoyed a breakout 2014, sharing stages with Anais Mitchell, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Lake Street Dive, Shakey Graves, and more. Her joint EP with indie-folk quartet Darlingside, the Woodstock EP, was released in March and gained national attention in the New York Times for their cover of Joni Mitchell's song "Woodstock." Graham Nash (Crosby, Stills, Nash, Young) lauded the track during his keynote speech at Folk Alliance International, calling it "delicious, really excellent." <br /> <br />Maloney spent the end of 2014 in Nashville recording her next full-length record with producer Bill Reynolds (Band of Horses, Avett Brothers, Lissie). The album will be released in April 2015 on Signature Sounds.

Albany Pro Musica: In Paradisum -- Requiems by Gabriel Fauré and Raymond Torres-Santos (7:30 PM)
Troy Savings Bank Music Hall, 30 Second Street, Troy, NY 12180
With the Capital District Youth Chorale and Orchestra Pro Musica -- Gabriel Fauré started a trend when he composed his beloved Requiem. Diverting from the dramatic exploitation of the "day of wrath" by his predecessors, Fauré saw "death as a happy deliverance, an aspiration towards happiness above, rather than as a painful experience." This same spirit is echoed by celebrated Puerto Rican composer Raymond Torres-Santos in his unique Requiem. His love for film music is apparent in this melodious work, and this performance will be a New York State premiere. While Fauré's lullaby-like approach to paradise is sweet and tender, Torres-Santos takes you to paradise in an exhilarating explosion of joy. <br /> <br />Tickets available at Albany Pro Musica's website or by calling 518-346-6204.

Rani Arbo & Daisy Mayhem CD Release (8:00 PM)
The Linda - WAMC's Performing Arts Center, 339 Central Ave, Albany, NY 12206
Sponsored By WEXT 97.7 <br /> <br />"If Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem offer to cook at your place, you better open up all the doors, and borrow every table and chair you can, because the whole town should come." -- Folk Alley Magazine <br />"Playful and profound" -- The Boston Globe <br /> <br />Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem are a steadily deepening, 12-year brew of band chemistry, life experience and musical evolution. In 2007, the San Francisco Guardian called them "one of the most song- and arrangement-oriented bands in a field overgrown with pyrotechnic, jam- and solo-conscious virtuosos." Nice. And true. But what really sets this band apart is their connection -- to each other, to the audience, and to the music. Simultaneously loose and tight, their playing seems to tick by invisible radar; it's exciting, cathartic, and fun to watch. It's a band. <br /> <br />On stage, they are Rani Arbo (fiddle, guitar), Andrew Kinsey (bass, banjo, uke), Anand Nayak (electric and acoustic guitars) and Scott Kessel (percussion). Kessel's percussion rig is 95% recycled, featuring a cardboard box, tin cans, caulk tubes, and a vinyl suitcase in lieu of a bass drum. All the band members sing, and their four-part harmonies soar, whether on a haunting Appalachian ballad, a Springsteen rocker, or a Bahamian a capella song. Many of their songs plumb the human condition, with topics ranging from joy to death (a favorite), loss, aging, blackbirds and red-haired boys. The band has jokingly dubbed itself an "agnostic gospel" revival show, but there's truth in it; the refrain they hear time and again from audiences all over the country is that their performances really do heal. <br /> <br />Musically, Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem reuse and recycle (but try hard not to reduce) 150 years of American music. They hang a Georgia Sea Islands song on a New Orleans groove. They write lyrics for an Irish fiddle tune and underpin it with an Afro-Cuban cajon. Leonard Cohen gets clawhammer banjo; Springsteen gets bluegrass harmonies. Their originals range from blues, to bluegrass, to Unitarian funk gospel, to crooner swing, to spooky folk-pop. With influences from Doc Watson to Django Reinhardt, from Fiddlin' John Carson to the funky Meters, Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem celebrates America's past and takes it into the present. Of their signature style, Vancouver's Rogue Folk Review wrote, "It's as hard to classify as it is to praise highly enough...an intoxicating blend of roots music styles, with deep traditional roots and a healthy futuristic outlook. Strongly recommended."

Willie Nile (8:00 PM)
The Linda - WAMC's Performing Arts Center, 339 Central Ave, Albany, NY 12206
With Special Guests Jefferson Grizzard <br /> <br />Anyone who's paid attention to his recent output knows that Willie Nile is currently in the midst of a creative renaissance that's produced some of the most compelling music of his 35-year career. Back fagain at The Linda with the full band Willie always lives up to the reputation for writing songs that are as impassioned as they are infectious, and performing them with the fervor of a true believer. <br /> <br />Having launched his recording career at the height of the major-label era, and never comfortable with the baggage that comes along with being a major-label commodity, Nile has in recent years embraced the autonomy and freedom of his current indie status. <br />Willie Nile's fans include Bruce Springsteen, with whom he's guested onstage on multiple occasions, and Pete Townshend, who personally requested him as the opening act on the Who's 1982 U.S. tour. Other avowed Nile admirers include Bono, Lou Reed, Paul Simon, Ian Hunter, Graham Parker, Jim Jarmusch, Adam Duritz, Little Steven and Lucinda Williams, who once remarked, "Willie Nile is a great artist. If there was any justice in this world, I'd be opening up for him instead of him for me."

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.

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.

Green Urbanism (12:00 AM - 3:00 PM)
Kore University of Enna
The world is in the midst of a disturbance of a growingly consuming population, and environmental degradation, which produces many environmental challenges such as global climate change, excessive fossil fuel dependency and the growing demand for energy, all likely to be major challenges of the 21st century and one of the greatest problems facing humanity. <br /> <br />In this context, urban design is the fundamental principle of how to shape our cities. Because almost half the energy consumed is used in cities and urban built-up areas, it is necessary to avoid mistakes in urban design at early stages in order to own more sustainable cities. The 1st international conference on Green Urbanism reflects upon practical strategies focusing on increasing sustainability beyond and within the scope of individual buildings. <br /> <br /> The conference provides a context for a general debate about the regeneration of the city Centre, and discusses how urbanism is affected by the paradigms of ecology. <br /> <br />IEREK organizes this conference to deal with cross-cut issues in architecture and urban design and address the question of how we can best cohesively integrate all aspects of energy systems, transport systems, waste and water management, passive and active strategies, into contemporary urban design and improved environmental performance of our cities. <br /> <br />The significance of thisconference lies in the pressing need for an integration of sustainability principles in the urban design process of cities and the general need for a sustainable city development. It will be of particular relevance to the rapid urban growth of developing cities.
