Join the Northshire Bookstore for a reading, discussion and signing with author Dennis Mahoney. "Bell Weather" has been an instant hit with our booksellers!

Set in a fantastical 18th century world where rain falls up and color storms wash the land with bright hues, Bell Weather is, at its core, the story of a spirited young woman fighting for the freedom to choose her own path. Although Molly tells the townsfolk of Root almost nothing of her past, readers learn about her childhood with an overbearing governess, a cold father, and a brilliant, cunning brother who will stop at nothing to ensure that he and Molly are together and unbridled. Mahoney has created a marvelous world that readers will want to visit again and again. ~ Reviewed by Amelia Stymacks

Owl (former members of The Cult and The Clay People) at Putnam Den (9:30 PM)
Putnam Den, 63A Putnam Street, Saratoga Springs
Owl pose some intriguing questions on their second full-length album, The Right Thing released April 9th on Overit Records.

"So many things are up in the air today," ponders frontman Chris Wyse. "A lot of times you ask yourself, 'Are we doing the right thing?' It's a simple question, but also profound. We're always wondering if we're moving in the right direction."

Musically, the trio has nothing to worry about. They bravely continue to forge ahead on the right path. Approaching timeless rock structures through a healthy amount of experimentation and instrumental intricacy, the group takes flight locked and loaded with unforgettable hooks and impressive delivery. It's a combination that instantly impacts and takes up residence inside your head as all great hard rock should.
After releasing their self-titled debut in 2009, Owl captivated audiences alongside the likes of Helmet and Jet to Hollywood all-star rock collective Camp Freddy. Between touring and recording commitments with Wyse's other gig - playing bass in The Cult - Owl began writing what would become the band's self-produced The Right Thing in early 2011. Sessions took place in Matt Sorum's Drac Studios in Los Angeles as well as at Dinsmore's own O Studios in the mountains of upstate New York.

"Although the first album was heavy and bombastic, I feel like our new record is even more engaging and exhilarating on various levels," Dinsmore reveals. "There's an honesty that shines through. We were all in the moment, and it shows. If you let it, this record will take you on a wild ride."

The title track boasts a propulsive drumbeat that drives into staggering distortion as Wyse muses,"You couldn't handle. You're tripping. You can't trust yourself". The song teeters between brooding and hypnotic as the band roars to life.

On the other end of the spectrum, they transform The Kinks' classic "Destroyer" into a swaggering futuristic stomper. It's got a classic energy, but it's still unequivocally Owl.

Elsewhere on the album, Wyse delves into his Irish roots on the rousing "Rover," and welcomes guest drummer Johnny Tempesta of The Cult on the electrifying, tribal-beat driven "All Day."

"Perfect" contemplates a perfect day over an ethereal soundscape flush with emotion. Wyse shares, "Sometimes you have those special moments where everything feels perfect. You get a flash of clarity and are able to reach another level. It's about cherishing those simple times when the dark parts of life just don't matter."

Mezilis concludes, "We approach music in a slightly unorthodox way, but our aim has always been to take listeners places they've never been before."

That's undeniably The Right Thing for Owl and listeners everywhere.

Theodore Corbett - ''No Turning Point: The Saratoga Campaign in Perspective'' (6:00 PM)
Northshire Bookstore, 424 Broadway, Saratoga Springs
The Battle of Saratoga in 1777 ended with British general John Burgoyne's troops surrendering to the American rebel army commanded by General Horatio Gates. Historians have long seen Burgoyne's defeat as a turning point in the American Revolution because it convinced France to join the war on the side of the colonies, thus ensuring American victory.

Theodore Corbett presents a new perspective, and examines Saratoga and its aftermath as part of ongoing conflicts among the settlers of the Hudson and Champlain valleys of New York, Canada, and Vermont.

Eric Paslay-Vapor Live (7:00 PM)
Vapor Night Club-Saratoga Casino and Raceway
Born in Abilene, Texas and raised in Waco and Temple. By the age of 16, Paslay had already written and recorded 10 songs that he played out around Texas. When Paslay moved to Nashville to pursue a music career, he eventually landed his own deal with the Cal IV in 2006. His songwriting and his impressive voice began garnering attention from labels and he signed with EMI Records Nashville. Paslay says he began writing songs because he wanted to sing them for people. "I turn it on when I get on stage. I love to entertain," says Paslay. Fans who have seen him on stage will testify there is so much more to the tall, Texas redhead than his excellent songwriting ability. Paslay is a charismatic performer and a potent vocalist who knows how to connect with an audience. As his hit singles "Friday Night" and "Song About A Girl" reach the upper level of the charts, Paslay has arrived as an artist in his own right.
