Nightlife Highlights: The Jam Messengers 



September 14. According to their MySpace page, international blues-punk duo the Jam Messengers—front man Rob K and drummer/singer/guitarist (all at the same time!) Uncle Butcher—are “on a mission: nothing less than resuscitating the sorry carcass of rock ’n’ roll! This once proud music has been abandoned to angst-ridden crybabies and buck-hungry charlatans.” Word. And these guys have the pedigree to revive the rock: Rob K was the singer and bassist of ’70s DC punks the Chumps and New York’s Workdogs, who frequently backed up Jon Spencer; Brazil’s Uncle Butcher had been plying his primitive one-man band act across several releases before the pair formed. (Barn Owl swoops in September 12; Japanese Gum and Avondale Airforce take off October 1.) 7pm. $5. Hudson. (518) 671-6006; www.thespottydog.com.

  • CD Review: Christine Spero's "Spero Plays Nyro"

    Why and how dare she devote an entire album to songs by Laura Nyro when we can just listen to the originals on Spotify? I'll tell you why. Because Christine Spero fully inhabits these songs, uncovers hidden nuances, and with her stunning ensemble—including drummer Peter O'Brien, bassist Scott Petito, saxophonist Elliot Spero, and Christine's own magic hands on the ivories.
