11/8/10: Today’s Tips: Monday
MUSIC: Elizabeth Cook @ The Linda, Albany. She made her Grand Ole Opry debut a decade ago, but Cook is definitely not your typical country singer. Her new album, “Welder,” was produced by Don Was. And her previous album, the Rodney Crowell-produced “Balls,” featured a cover of the Velvet Underground’s “Sunday Morning.” 8pm. $17.
MUSIC: A Day To Remember @ Northern Lights, Clifton Park. The Florida rockers roll into Clifton Park with their metalcore-meets-pop-punk hybrid sound, as well as a sneak peek at their upcoming new album, “What Separates Me From You.” With Underoath, the Word Alive and Close Your Eyes. 7pm. $25
MUSIC: Pink Martini @ The Egg, Albany. “If the United Nations had a house band in 1962,” says bandleader-pianist Thomas Lauderdale, “then hopefully we’d be that band.” The retro-minded, 11-piece, multi-culti, little big band is about to release their new album, “Joy to the World,” sung in eight different languages, so expect to hear some holiday tunes, as well. 7:30pm. $40-$75.
MUSIC: Johnny Society @ Club Helsinki Hudson. Johnny Society – the threesome of Kenny Siegal, Brian Geltner and Gwen Snyder (aka, Blueberry) – have just wrapped up the recording of their upcoming album, and they’re ready to rock. With Nick Perry. 8pm. FREE.
PARTICIPATORY MUSIC: Ukulele Night @ the Moon & River Cafe, Schenectady. Grab your ukulele and join Ron Gordon and the other Electric City ukesters for a fun evening of music making. All levels of experience welcome. 8pm. FREE
