The Dan Trudell Trio "Dan Trudell Plays The Piano"
If you include his most recent album, "The Heart Watches as the Brain Burns," Mike Doughty has cranked out 18 records since 2000, when he broke up Soul Coughing. Warner Bros. dropped him and he embarked on a tour selling 20,000 copies of his CD "Skittish."
Bash & Pop "Anything Could Happen"
A good early music rule of thumb is if it's a concert with Paul O'Dette, just drop everything and go. This world-renowned lutenist lives in Rochester (he teaches at the Eastman School of Music), but is celebrated around the world.
On Sunday, First Muse Chamber Music will present "Music of Sevens," a concert featuring compositions written in the seventh year of their respective decades. The Argos Trio — pianist Chiao-Wen Cheng, cellist Lars Kirvan, and violinist Liana Koteva Kirvan — along with violist Marc Anderson, will perform cherished chamber music works by Franz Schubert and Claude Debussy, from 1817 and 1917, respectively.
MC Lars, the innovative self-proclaimed creator of post-punk laptop rap, has helped establish nerdcore and pioneered lit-hop.
Like Led Zeppelin or Soundgarden or Foo Fighters feeling their way in the dark, Canadian-American rock sensation Big Wreck is a band of curiosity and riffs. The band's songwriting is such that it pleases the listener on levels they didn't know were there, levels they didn't know they had.
I've heard Mostly Other People Do The Killing as a quartet and a quintet, and on the group's latest wonderfully quirky album, "Loafer's Hollow," it ballooned to a septet. But when the group hits the Bop Shop for a rare Rochester appearance, it will be a piano trio featuring leader Moppa Elliott on bass; Ron Stabinsky, piano; and Kevin Shea, drums.
On Tuesday, February 28, the Eastman School of Music will present a program by Russia's oldest orchestra. Founded in 1882, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra originally only performed privately for the court of Alexander III.
