Tickets for Brunswick x2

The trailer for Brunswick.

Brunswick soundtrack Cover matthew carefullyDrawing's closed! Winner's been emailed!

The new documentary Brunswick -- about a farmer, local politics, and the tension between farming and development in Rensselaer County -- will be screened for the first time at the Spectrum next Wednesday (December 7). It's already sold out.

This Sunday at 7 pm, Matthew Carefully will be performing the music he composed for the Brunswick soundtrack at Caffe Lena. We're guessing it will be a packed house.

You still can go to both the screening and the concert -- because we're giving away a pair of tickets to both of them. To enter the drawing, please answer this question in the comments:

If could grow anything, what would it be?

Of course, "anything" in this case could be fruits or vegetables. It could also be... well... anything. Creative answers encouraged.

We'll draw one winner at random. That person will get a pair of tickets for each event. And if you could attend both, that would be extra swell.

Here's a bit more about Brunswick, which is directed by Nate Simms. And here's more from Matthew about the soundtrack. Bonus: the Caffe Lena show's opener is Bailiwick.

Important: All comments must be submitted by 10:30 am on Thursday (December 1, 2011) to be entered in the drawing. You must answer the question to be part of the drawing. One entry per person, please. You must enter a valid email address (that you check regularly -- seriously, if you win, we want to give you the tickets) with your comment. The winner will be notified via email by noon on Thursday and must respond by 9 am Friday (December 2).


I'd like to "grow" bees. I have been researching the feasability of bee keeping.

I'd say I'd grow more garlic, but since I had to downsize that to about 7,000 head for next year, I'm going to go with time (which would allow me to grow more garlic). Is that some kind of loop?

I'd grow a headful of hair. I miss the days of long, wavy locks. 8-(

I think I would like to grow sunshine. Who wouldn't like to pick a little ball of sunshine and hold it in their hand?

Wool socks!

A pair.


I would grow oranges. I would be the only guy with local oranges.

guitar skills

I would grow pies. Apple pies, blueberry pies, shepherd's pies....

Denser cities!

Coffee beans. Groves and groves of them.

Shatner. I'd grow William Shatner.

Looking forward to seeing this film about my hometown--born & raised. :)

I would grow extra arms and legs to keep up with my very fast toddler!

two tickets to this movie.

Common sense

I would like to grow hot, home-cooked meals.

Also, for everyone who missed out on tickets to Brunswick's premiere-- this wonderful film will be part of the Catskill Film and Video Fest on January 29. For more info visit


grow the perfect job!

LOVE!!! You can never have too much of that (and it's great to share with others)!

Money! My dad always used to tell me money didn't grow on trees, but I never believed him.

Pumpkins! Then every fall there would be a screening of "the great pumpkin" in the pumpkin patch!

A time hoody! #sixseasonsandamovie

Time. It would look like the most beautiful roses, all different colors on one bush. Then you'd harvest the "rose hip" part and make a tea that would taste like a cross between butterscotch and snozzberries. You'd drink some and your days would feel a little longer, the good times would linger, and on new years you wouldn't have to say, "where did last year go? It just flew by!"
They'd be really finicky though, you'd have to water with tears of joy, dust them with finely ground bad memories to keep the pests off, and they'd need at least 1 hour of direct rainbow per day.

The Scoop

For a decade All Over Albany was a place for interested and interesting people in New York's Capital Region. It was kind of like having a smart, savvy friend who could help you find out what's up. AOA stopped publishing at the end of 2018.

Albany tightened its rules for shoveling snowy sidewalks last winter -- so how'd that work out?

If winter ever gets its act together and drops more snow on us, there will be sidewalks to shovel. And shortly after that, Albany will... (more)
