The Überjam sound starts with compositions written for his lead guitar, Avi's funky rhythm guitar and sampled loops in front of electric bass and drums. The project has been reunited in 2013 for the May release of a new recording — Überjam Deux and worldwide touring.

Opening Performance by 2010 American Idol winner Lee DeWyze TOAD THE WET SPROCKET Sunday, November 3, 7:30 pm $30 Adult – Reserved Seating $15 Students – Reserved Seating When Monty Python’s Eric Idle created the fictional band “Toad the Wet Sprocket” for the program “Rutland Weekend Television” in 1975, he never dreamed that anyone would actually use such a silly name. Fast forward to 1986, when four California teens desperately needed to come up with a name to call their band for an upcoming gig at a Goleta, CA, watering hole called The Shack. Since that day, “Toad the Wet Sprocket” has been the name of the four-piece rock band consisting of lead singer Glen Phillips, guitarist Todd Nichols, bassist Dean Dinning, and drummer Randy Guss. From 1989-1998, they made five studio albums which combined sold over four million copies, had five major radio hits, and won over audiences across North America and Europe. The group is currently in the studio with producer Mikal Blue, and fans can look forward to a new release and extensive tour in 2013

IT’S A JAZZY CHRISTMAS!

AN EVENING WITH JOHN MEDESKI

Friday, December 6, 6 pm $20 Adult – Reserved Seating, $10 Student – Free for children 5 and under (ticket required) Reserved Seating

Sunday, January 27, 3 pm $25 Adult – Reserved Seating $12.50 Students – Reserved Seating

The Peanut Gallery Jazz Trio will take concertgoers on a musical journey reminiscent of a 1940s radio serials, evoking images and emotions from an innocent childhood and days gone by. The concert begins. Suddenly, a news flash: the Holiday Spirit has been stolen. Can the band and the audience get enough Holiday spirit to save the day? With Guaraldi’s music made famous in the “Peanuts” holiday specials, it’s a perfect concert for the jazz lover and the entire family, just in time for the holidays.

As the keyboardist in the trailblazing instrumental trio Medeski Martin & Wood, solo performer, leader of his own project “The Itch,” film composer, and producer, collaborator, whirling-dervish improviser and sideman with countless other artists, Medeski consistently wrings sonic revelations from acoustic and electric piano, Hammond organ, Clavinet, Mellotron, assorted synthesizers and other instruments. He’s nearly as dynamic visually as aurally, windmilling his hands across the keys, leaning into a B-3 stab, reaching inside the piano to tap the strings with a screwdriver. “What’s music for?” the versatile musician asks rhetorically. “Making money? Entertainment? No. It’s a language, one that exists between the land of emotion and the land of intellect. Music can change your whole world.”

ANDREA HERSH — COMMUNITY GARDEN Exhibition: September 6 – February 28 Reception: Friday, September 6, 5-7 pm Massry Center for the Arts Atrium, 1002 Madison Ave., Albany “Dream fragments, fantasies and fleeting moments provide fertile subject matter for my paintings, drawings and collages. The protagonists are portrayed as hybrids, part human, part vegetable, and cast into precarious and toxic situations, investigating themes of vulnerability, desire, greed and industry gone awry. The genesis of this body of work occurred when my first child was born. As a young mother, I tried to make sense of our disposable world. I imagined mountains of detritus festering in landfills for millions of years. Then I re-imagined a dystopian world inherited by post-human creatures and the metamorphosis that might occur from our intervention with the natural world.” — Andrea Hersh, 2013
