Kingston After Dark: Shana Falana’s two nights at Tubby’s

Kingston After Dark: Shana Falana’s two nights at Tubby’s

This week is going to be lucky for local dream pop and indie genre fans as Shana Falana road test their pending South By Southwest 2020 appearance with two local warm up shows at Tubby’s on Broadway. I caught up with Shana to find out the scoop on the dates at the boutique bar and performance space. “It’s the first time we’re ever playing SXSW, so we’re doing 2 warm up shows at Tubby’s. Thursday, March 5 with Top Nachos and Friday, March 6 with Gold Dime of Fire Talk Records,” she tells me. “We’re going to play a stripped-down set, no backing tracks, projections or lights and are working on something new for SX. It should be pretty raw, and Mike Amari will be singing!”

The big show I want to plug this week in none other than rising Rochester act Mikaela Davis, who comes to BSP Kingston Wednesday, Nov. 27. Her Rounder Records album Delivery was produced by Grammy winner John Congleton (St. Vincent, David Byrne, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) and features a wide array of influences. I really enjoyed the title track video on YouTube, an evocative black-and-white performance video that reminded me of a weird shared space between Norah Jones piano jazz, sentimental indie rock and personal revelation.

A boring run-of-the-mill collection of clichés this record is most definitely not.

Tubby’s in Kingston (586 Broadway) regularly hosts acclaimed and interesting music, from well-known names like Thalia Zedek to Oneida to up-and-coming regional acts like Hen In The Foxhouse or Silverdome. This Saturday, Nov. 2 will find the venue hosting a special regional welcome-back show of sorts for psych-folk artist and consistent anti-violence activist Globelamp.

Kingston After Dark: Introspection

Kingston After Dark: Introspection

How do we form our relationships to art, sound or the self? Is it all pre-conditioning or situational or does some part of it essentially come from some Platonic realm of forms or a divine spark we channel while in this mortal coil? It is a fascinating subject, a mansion-sized conversation with many rooms and theories to wander through. The answer can also be different for each individual, I’d wager.
