Drawing: Postmodern Jukebox at Troy Music Hall

Postmodern Jukebox

Drawing's closed!

The pop song cover/re-interpretation act Postmodern Jukebox will be at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall this Saturday, October 25. The group takes modern pop hits and reinterprets them in other styles, often from previous eras. A few examples: a ragtime version of "Call Me Maybe" and and 1920s jazz take on Iggy Azalea's "Fancy."

We have a pair of tickets to the show and we're giving them away. To you? Maybe!

Empire State Plaza

Public transportation

chow mein (to include the ingredient it is "named" for)

The egg ... How many different styles could this be done in and still retain its egg-ness.

787 and the whole river front corridor in Albany could definitely use some reinterpretation!

Tiny Hot Dogs.

..... The milkman and the donut truck! At least in the winter :)

the state office campus roadway could use some re-imagining.

I suppose "state government" is too predictable...

Proctor's Theater in Troy, restored to its former glory, playing some blockbusters and some limited release shows under the same roof!

The Troy Water Tower!

This may be banal, but I would love to see a regional T&LC instead of zones broken up by munis. Imagine (or reimagine) a world where it costs $12 to get from downtown to the rail station and $8 to get to Xgates from the same location disappearing and a metered cab world came into existence. #LongingForUber

Parking

As the St. Vincent post points out - the Upstate Concert Hall!

the Port of Albany - waterfront property that could be put to better use!

Green Island Bridge

Gerald Jennings!!

Cuomo (D)

The Atrium in Troy

Fuze Box

Transportation. Be it public, traditional, or rail... :) Better, more sensible roads. Google pods that take us where we need to go. Whatever... Just, no flying cars.

Also, I love their aesthetic. =D

The Harriman Campus

Latham Circle Mall...a SuperWalmart isn't enough...we need something more interesting!!!

The river front area in Albany, and most of downtown. We're seeing Troy revitalize it's entire downtown area but yet Albany still has yet to do anything different. So many storefronts are empty but it's easy to see how beautiful it could be.

Center square

Reinterpreting the racially divided aspects of our city neighborhoods would be a capital idea.

howe caverns!

The river's edge! ..coffee shops and restaurants overlooking the river's edge!

State Capitol building in a modern interpretation. Lots of glass but while still maintaining it's renaissance revival style would make it look like a ice palace.

Riverfront.

The laws being passed around inside the NYS Dept of Education building.. enough with the testing! Aside from the business talk.. people should reinterpret the use of the word "smAllbany" into something more positive because I love it here : )

troy's waterfront!

the downtown area

Zoning law, to allow mother-in-law apartments in more places.

Clifton Park would be reinterpreted as it should have been interpreted: Being park-like, rather than parking lot like

I would love to see the crosswalk system on Central Ave re-imagined! I don't have to walk across the road very often but when I do I can see why people get hit.

Schenectady

Nightlife!

Schenectady Alco site. No casino, but open to the pubic in some way.

The Albany City School District.

While convenient, every time I drive 787 I think to myself that the space could be SO much more than a highway.

Also this band looks amazing.

North Troy.

Those "HUUUUUUUGE!!!!!" car commercials that seem to be on tv every five minutes.

Downtown.

Abandoned houses into haunted houses

How about re-imagining The Empire State Plaza Egg like the Spaceship Earth ride at Epcot

willett street

My bank account. I'd like the bank to add a few more zeros to the end of that small number...

The State Government! Reboots are so hot right now, why can't Albany get in on some of that action?

How the local LGBT(etc) community organizes itself...it's so fragmented, un-unified, and cliquey...which I suppose is how things go...but it'd be nice to see some unitiy on most issues instead of just one or two.

The music from that ice cream truck that lurks around my neighborhood. it's finally gone now, but it took the summer with it.

The waterfront... both sides of the river.

The shape of traffic circles

The beautiful Art Deco Green Island Bridge lit at night.

The WHOLE downtown waterfront would be great! Give the people access!

The Town of Malta needs to "reinterpret" what they consider their downtown-and the exit 11 traffic circles!

The Egg

Albany traffic.

Say Something!
