Peter Mulvey with opener Hayley Reardon (8:00 PM)
Caffe Lena - 47 Phila St., Saratoga Springs
Peter Mulvey has pursued a restless, eclectic path as a writer and musician - immersing himself in Tin Pan Alley, modern acoustic music, poetry, literature, and bedrock Americana. The end result is punchy acoustic rock & ballads that don't shy away from darkness, or light. His engagement in the moment is intoxicating for live audiences. Mulvey has a honed ability to hold an audience's attention and transport them, using wit, humor, and melody to gracefully introduce complex and provocative concepts and characters. Night after night, Mulvey draws on all that he has studied to make a fresh, vital moment out of everything he and the audience have brought to the table that night. "To come together in a room, to try to make music come alive, for real, for right now, and then to let it go . . . that is the whole deal for me."

Opener Hayley Reardon was named 2012 Bostonian of the Year for both her music and her work to pair it with a message of teen empowerment.

Her latest release is the Grammy-nominated Nocturne Diaries. Produced by her son, Cisco Ryder, it is a contemplative work inspired by the converging forces of her highest hopes and darkest fears.
On stage Eliza brings a vibrant mix of laugh-til-you-cry storytelling, political diatribes, and vulnerable love songs to both Earth and humanity.

The Diary of Anne Frank

During the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands Anne Frank began to keep a diary on June 14, 1942, two days after her 13th birthday, and twenty two days before going into hiding with her mother, father, sister, and three other people. The group went into hiding in the sealed-off upper rooms of the annex of her father's office building in Amsterdam. The sealed-off upper-rooms also contained a hidden door which the Franks would hide in during the parts when Nazi soldiers were investigating the buildings for harbored Jews. They remained hidden for two years and one month, until their betrayal in August 1944, which resulted in their deportation going to Nazi concentration camps.

Eastbound Jesus (CD Release) w/ Lucid (9:00 PM)
Putnam Den
EASTBOUND JESUS: Eastbound Jesus is a six piece acoustic/electric band from the small town of Greenwich, NY. They formed in the fall of 2010 in an old barn on the outskirts of their hometown and huddled around a hot wood-stove, they began writing music right away. Adam Brockway, Carl and Luke Anderson, Dave Wright, Dylan Robinson and Zack Infante take inspiration from all over the music spectrum to form a style all their own. Over a tight rhythm section, the group blends clever lyrics, unique vocal harmonies, solid strumming and picking, and rounds out their sound with lead instrumentation that is nothing short of on-point. ------------------------------------------------------------------- LUCID was born in a small Adirondack town called Plattsburgh: a place every band should be so lucky to call home. The locals there love live music, and give it their unrelenting support, while several colleges in the area provide a constant stream of new listeners eager to participate in the party. The town is flooded with musicians in one of the tightest and largest (per capita) music scenes in any city in America. On a given Friday night one can walk out of a bar where pulsing mambo beats drive the audience from their seats, into another where a frenzied crowd thrashes to raging death metal, into another where a cover band plays 80s favorites, and likely you will be followed by one or more of these musicians as they hop from band to band to play with their friends for a song or two. It is in this diverse and supportive environment that Lucid grew into adulthood.

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.
