J. B. Scott’s Reunion 

Nightlife Highlights

J. B. Scott’s Reunion
May 5. Until a fire closed it in 1982, J. B. Scott’s was the hub of Albany’s underground rock scene. The nightclub hosted early area appearances by U2, the Ramones, Iggy Pop, the Go-Go’s, the Specials, the Tourists (starring a pre-Eurythmics Annie Lennox), and others, and gave local acts a place to kick out the home-grown jams. Co-headlining this new wave nostalgia night at Michael’s Banquet House are reunited punk pranksters Blotto and pop-wavers Fear of Strangers, both prefaced by the Penny Knight Band, the Lazers, the Last Conspirators (with Tim Livingston of pioneering Capital punks the Morons), an Ernie Williams tribute, and more. Proceeds aid animal rescue group Noah’s Kingdom. 6pm. $33, $40. Cohoes. (518) 785-8524.
