6/29/10: Today’s Tips: Tuesday

MUSIC: Stefon Harris & Blackout @ Skidmore’s Zankel Music Center, Saratoga Springs. Jazz in Saratoga continues – but now it’s free. That’s right, Albany native and master vibraphonist Harris and his jazz fusion band were one of the big hits of last weekend’s Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival at SPAC, as they tore through a big batch of selections from their latest, Grammy-nominated album, “Urbanus.” And, yeah, saxman Casey Benjamin even broke out the vocoder for “Christina.” What will they have in store for us tonight? 8pm. Free.

MUSIC: Rosanne Cash @ the Colonial Theatre, Pittsfield. She’s still touring strong on her latest Grammy-nominated album, “The List,” a collection of classic songs suggested by her father. But now she’s also about to publish a book of her memoirs, “Composed.” That Cash gal has got a whole lot of talent. 7:30pm. $35, $55.

FILM: “A Night at the Opera” @ PS21, Chatham. The Marx Brothers’ 1935 movie is still one of the best American comedy films of all time. The stateroom scene alone is worth the price of admission. 8:30pm. Free.

MUSIC: The Macerators @ Schodack Town Park, Schodack. Good old-fashioned classic rock ‘n’ roll in the great outdoors, thanks to the Schodack Town Park concert series. 6pm. Free.

MUSIC: The Electric City Horns @ Cook Park, Colonie. You don’t have to wait til Chicago rolls into SPAC on Saturday for a dose of horn-fueled rock & roll. 6:30pm. Free.

MUSIC: DJ Pauly D @ Northern Lights, Clifton Park. Direct from “Jersey Shore,” Paul DelVecchio will be pumpin’ up the volume, leavin’ you spent and sweaty on the dance floor. With DJ Gweedo. Doors open at 8pm. $25.
