Sloppy Seconds in Albany

June 24. Things looked bleak for the Capital Region when its beloved rock 'n' roll shrine Valentine's was forced to close earlier this year. But the mood has taken a decidedly upbeat turn since that hallowed venue's owners opened the Low Beat, which has thus far gotten across-the-board raves. Among the new club's standout bookings for June is this one by veteran Indianapolis punk unit Sloppy Seconds, whose Ramones-rooted attack and cartoonish lyrics encompassing "pornography, classic horror movies, classic television shows, comic books, alcohol, being fat, and getting drunk" most certainly assure an evening of high-quality entertainment. With Sugareater and Knyghts of Fuzz. (Wreckless Eric checks in June 14; Snowmine drifts by June 22.) 7pm. $10. Albany. (518) 432-6572; Thelowbeat.com.

Speaking of...

  • Sloppy Seconds comes to Albany on June 24.

    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.
