Connor Garvey at Caffe Lena (Sarah Blacker Opens) (8:00 PM - 11:00 PM)
Caffe Lena - 47 Phila St., Saratoga Springs
Connor Garvey is a singer-songwriter from Portland, Maine, with the amiable presence of an entertainer, the lyrical depth of a poet, and the enchantment of a storyteller. He is living proof that you can be sunny without being superficial. First time listeners get hooked by his intimate and cheerful performance style, accomplished musicianship, and memorable melodies. But there's abundant meaning beyond the catchy hooks. With his pleasing tenor voice and upbeat melodic style, The Portland Phoenix praised Connor's "Martin Sexton-ish jangle funk, Mraz-y confessionals, and clear voice..." Vance Gilbert, Amy Speace and David Wilcox have each registered their enthusiasm for Connor's music, and fans at several top festivals (Kerrville, Falcon Ridge, Solarfest and more) picked him as number one in their songwriting competitions in the summer of 2014. <br /> <br />The Boston Herald's Jed Gottlieb called singer-songwriter Sarah Blacker "Boston's delightful folk nymph," yet he also said of her, "Sarah Blacker makes some of the most interesting folk music in Boston mostly by making folk the starting point and reaching out toward rock, Americana and prog." Her voice is unusually fine and her poignant, emotionally charged lyrics are impressive. She'll be opening tonight's show, and joining Connor during his set.

Adam Faucett and The Tall Grass at The Hollow (8:00 PM)
The Hollow, 79 North Pearl Street, Albany, 12207
Arkansas songwriter Adam Faucett returns to The Hollow with his band, The Tall Grass, following his solo performance in December as tour support for Chuck Ragan. <br /> <br />From Faucett and his Tall Grass, expect an experience that's "part folk, part blues, part elemental rock stomp, part unidentifiable cosmic holler" (Arkansas Democrat Gazette), from "one of the greatest, most thoughtful lyricists the state has to offer." (Arkansas Times). <br /> <br />Faucett's fourth record under his own name--2014's Blind Water Finds Blind Water--found it's way among several 2014 "best of" lists, including American Songwriter's "Top 50 Albums of 2014," in which it professed, "Faucett's sounds are slippery, guided by spirits rather than structures; [he] roams the backroads and gas station parking lots of some strange, haunted country, hinting at a terrifying truth behind mundane imagery." And it's all delivered by the voice that The Onion A.V. club warns "knocks your brain into the back of your skull".

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."

Brandi Carlile (8:00 PM)
Palace Theater, 19 Clinton Avenue, Albany, NY 12207
"Everyone needs to be risking something," says Seattle-based singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile. She's discussing the M.O. behind The Firewatcher's Daughter, her stunning new release - her first for artist-friendly indie label ATO. The 12-song collection marks a triumphant return after a three-year recording hiatus, and her strongest, most rock & roll album to date. <br /> <br />"Rock & roll music as a genre always has a sense of erratic recklessness to it," she says. "It can't really be rehearsed - in fact, rehearsal can kill it. On this album, each song has its honest rock & roll moment, even the ballads; it's between the point where you've learned the song enough to get through it, but you don't have any control over it yet." <br /> <br />Since her heralded, genre-defying 2005 Columbia debut, Carlile and her indispensable collaborators, Tim and Phil Hanseroth, aka The Twins, have always offered listeners both control and abandon, often within a single song. The most well-known Brandi Carlile tunes, 2007's "The Story" and 2012's "That Wasn't Me," are dynamic journeys in themselves, encompassing myriad emotions and varied stylistic touches; "The Story" morphs from understated balladry to epic stadium rock, while "That Wasn't Me" effortlessly straddles country soul and pop gospel. Infused with Carlile's clarion voice, The Twins' tight sibling harmonies, and stellar musicianship from everyone, it all simply sounds like Brandi Carlile.

Eastbound Jesus (CD Release) w/ Lucid (9:00 PM)
Putnam Den, 63A Putnam Street, Saratoga Springs, NY
EASTBOUND JESUS: Eastbound Jesus is a six piece acoustic/electric band from the small town of Greenwich, NY. They formed in the fall of 2010 in an old barn on the outskirts of their hometown and huddled around a hot wood-stove, they began writing music right away. Adam Brockway, Carl and Luke Anderson, Dave Wright, Dylan Robinson and Zack Infante take inspiration from all over the music spectrum to form a style all their own. Over a tight rhythm section, the group blends clever lyrics, unique vocal harmonies, solid strumming and picking, and rounds out their sound with lead instrumentation that is nothing short of on-point. ------------------------------------------------------------------- LUCID was born in a small Adirondack town called Plattsburgh: a place every band should be so lucky to call home. The locals there love live music, and give it their unrelenting support, while several colleges in the area provide a constant stream of new listeners eager to participate in the party. The town is flooded with musicians in one of the tightest and largest (per capita) music scenes in any city in America. On a given Friday night one can walk out of a bar where pulsing mambo beats drive the audience from their seats, into another where a frenzied crowd thrashes to raging death metal, into another where a cover band plays 80s favorites, and likely you will be followed by one or more of these musicians as they hop from band to band to play with their friends for a song or two. It is in this diverse and supportive environment that Lucid grew into adulthood.

Join Graham Alexander and his band to celebrate the release of "REPEAT DECEIVER." This sophomore album by Graham Alexander has been critically heralded as a modern day rock, funk, and pop fusion masterwork which in turn has pushed Graham Alexander to the top of critics' best of lists.

Come celebrate the first release from the legendary record company and experience the birth of a new era in music. <br /> <br />With a style incredibly eclectic and signature, Graham Alexander's life has been dedicated to performing, composing and producing music from an early age. Graham's upbringing brought in an incredibly diverse palette of pop artists from Glenn Miller, Frank Sinatra and American folk music of the early 20th century, to Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, and 2Pac Shakur. Born in a severely depressed post-industrial Camden, N.J., Graham's first guitar was picked from the garbage on account of not being able to afford one on his own. From that point, he and music of every kind became inseparable.

Directed by Jon Long (IMAX EXTREME), the story is told through the eyes of a group of people who helped create a cultural phenomenon. It is the story of a cultural revolution grounded in embracing the moment and doing what makes you feel the most alive.

We discover how an electrifying new world came about through pure energy and imagination and the infinite possibilities of self-expression available to anyone willing to drop in. <br />Featuring top athletes across all the major action and outdoor sports like Tony Hawk, Kelly Slater, Gerry Lopez, Nyjah Houston, Danny Way, Jeremy Jones, Shane McConkey, Warren Miller, Robbie Maddison, Robby Naish, and Kai Lenny and standouts from the business world including Quiksilver founder Bob McKnight, Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard, mountain biking pioneer Gary Fisher and surf filmmaking legend Bruce Brown (ENDLESS SUMMER).

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

ACPHS Summer Science Camp (9:30 AM - 4:30 PM)
Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences
The Summer Science Camp program at Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences offers elementary, middle, and high school students a unique summer camp opportunity. Each one-week session will help students learn about a science in a way that is engaging and fun -- all while they experience what life is like on a College campus. The cost of the camp includes all activities, field trips, lunch, snacks, and a t-shirt. Availability is limited and last year's program sold out for two of the three weeks, so register today! 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. For those who attend all three weeks, the total cost will be $640 (a $50 savings) minus the $20 early bird discount, if applicable. Discounts may also be available for families with three or more children interested in attending the camp.

Not only did the Wilson sisters lead the band, they wrote the songs and played the instruments too, making them the first women in rock to do so. 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."

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.

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.

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.
