heARTS Aligned

hearts aligned reinert 2010There's an interesting show featuring two great singers this Saturday at Bread and Jam. Katie Haverly and Ashley Pond will be performing a set guided by art.

OK, maybe this will explain heARTS Aligned better:

Over the course of two months, visual artists [Eugene] Falco and [Nick] Reinert created dozens of "song-cards" (four by six inch durable paper) inspired by Haverly and Pond's music and songs. They immersed themselves in the songwriters' work and transferred their visual interpretations onto the song-cards using a variety of mediums including ink and acrylic.
Falco and Reinert's song-cards will be given away in a lottery drawing. The lottery system determines who wins each card, which in turn structures Haverly and Pond's set-lists, as they perform round-robin style beneath the enlarged and projected images of their songs.

We went to last year's heARTS Aligned show (featuring Matthew Loiacono and Matt Durfee) -- it was fun and laid back. If you've never been to Bread and Jam, this is a good opportunity to check out the cozy Cohoes space and see two excellent performers.

The show starts at 8pm. It's $5.

I'm concerned how much demolition is going on here. Too many important, historic buildings in Albany are already tagged with an 'X' and the city's approach seems to tear down and ask questions later. Not only are these homes part of the city's history but they are what makes this place unique and they should be treasured- not trashed. In addition, these structures are better built and will last longer than new construction. ...
