Lark Tavern, Sunday

The Rev Records, a new local re- cord label founded by local

mover and shaker Harith Abdullah, is initiating a monthly

performance series to be held at the Lark Tavern on the last

Tuesday of every month. This Sunday there will be a concert

and bake sale (yes, you read that correctly) to kick off the

series. The featured performers (all Rev artists) are Laura

Boggs (whose recent CD, Whiskey & Springtime, was released

in November), Tom McWatters, Matt McWatters, Jared Funari,

Bessam Sam, the Xylophones, and Sgt. Dunbar and the Hobo

Banned. The party will continue post-live-music with the

help of DJ Lady Luck. So join the cast of the Rev Records’

family and buy my treats (unfortunately, we cannot guarantee

that there will be “special” brownies available). All

proceeds go to support the label. Also: We heard rumors of a

rock-paper-scissors tournament taking place, but don’t quote

us on that. (March 25, 8 PM, free, 453 Madison Ave., Albany,

Academy Hall Auditorium 8pm
GZ is putting on a band show to raise money for the "Troy

Cinema and Visual Arts Group." The group is going to put on

in Troy, for cheap. Eventually, they want to have enough

money to get their own theater. And, it's being headed by

Ground Zero co-founder Will Gill.

Anti-Jazz Quartet Ensemble -- Disgusted by the pretentious

nature of modern jazz and avant-garde music, the Anti-Jazz

Quartet Ensemble seeks to undermine the conventions of the

experimental music world. In the same vein as the punks of

the 1970s, the quartet takes this "high-art" form and places

it in the hands of average rock musicians and listeners.

While the music may be experimental, it is not alienating.
