A promising weekend for entertainment
November 18, 2009 - Bill Ackerbauer
This afternoon I'm putting together the What's to Do listing, our weekly calendar of local arts/entertainment/cultural events. It's going to be a big listing this week. In addition to many of the familiar rock bands and solo acts on the local tavern circuit, we have comedy at the Funny Farm, plays at the Jewish Community Center and the Colonial Little Theatre, and a few touring music acts passing through.
Here are some highlights:
On Thursday night from 5 to 7 at Gloversville High School, Capital Region pop-rockers The Velmas will play a benefit concert for the Jacob Shell medical fund. Also performing will be Beth Zaj and music teacher John Savage and some of his GHS jazz cats. The tickets are cheap — $3 for students and $5 for adults.
On Friday night, the Perthshire will present Tim Creaser, doing a tribute to Johnny Cash and Neil Diamond, which sounds like an interesting combination. Maybe he'll play "A Boy Named Sue" in a medley with "Girl, You'll be a Woman Soon."
On Saturday night, singer-songwriter David Roth will perform at SkyHeart Studio in Gloversville. His promotional materials make a point of stressing he is not to be confused with David Lee Roth, going so far as to describe him as a cross between James Taylor and Jerry Seinfeld. (Not that there's anything wrong with the long-haired, bespandexed former Van Halen singer.)
Here's a David Roth performance that I found on YouTube:
