Basilica Hudson exterior 2014

The schedule is out for the 2018 season of events at Basilica Hudson. The slate again includes music, markets, art and other events at the venue co-founded by Melissa Auf der Maur Tony Stone in a converted factory space near the Hudson train station.

Among the bits from the schedule: The popular Basilica SoundScape returns September 14-16.

Here's a quick-scan look at the season schedule...

April 6-8: ONE Fair
"Working in partnership with Virago Futures, Basilica Hudson will be launching a new event for 2018 with a focus on renewable energy. The Our New Energy Fair will feature renewable energy companies and Earth-friendly groups showcasing their services; education and advocacy groups in panel talks and discussions, and opportunities for practical problem solving. Building on Basilica Hudson's long-standing commitment to sustainability, ONE Fair aims to show how it is possible for everyone to run their home with renewable energy."

April 28-29: 24-Hour Drone
"Basilica Hudson and Le Guess Who? Festival present 24-HOUR DRONE, an immersive, all-encompassing event featuring an international roster of musicians and sound artists working in electronic, psychedelic, classical, non-western, instrumental and other genres incorporating drone to create a full 24 hours of unbroken sound." Tickets are now on sale.

May 12: Basilica Farm & Flea Spring Market
"Visitors can shop handmade and vintage goods, purchase locally-made added value food products and eat farm-fresh food. General admission for the whole weekend is $5 and free for children under 12."

June-August: Basilica Non-Fiction Screenings Series
"The Basilica Non-Fiction Screening Series celebrates and examines the documentary genre through screenings and dialogue with visiting directors."

June 9: (Freak) Flag Day
"Cloaked by night and surrounded by colorful explosions, Basilica's annual dance party acts as a freakier counterpart to Hudson's annual Flag Day celebrations, featuring performances and dancing into the wee hours."

September 14-16: Basilica SoundScape
"Presented in collaboration with The Creative Independent, Basilica SoundScape incorporates live concert performances, conceptual sound performances, author readings, installations, collaborations, curated local vendors, on-site activities and more, creating an immersive weekend of art, music, and culture. Basilica SoundScape features a lineup of some to the most innovative and genre-pushing musicians, visual artists and writers working today, with unique collaborations across disciplines."

November 23-27: Basilica Farm & Flea Holiday Market
"Born Thanksgiving Weekend 2013 as an antidote to the big box, corporate nature of Black Friday, Basilica Farm & Flea Holiday Market is part timeless flea and farmer's market and part 21st century craft and design fair, showcasing the wealth and splendor of the Hudson Valley's artisanal talents."

October 26-28: Pioneering People
"Basilica Hudson's Pioneering People Series celebrates groundbreaking artists across a range of disciplines. Always incorporating a benefit performance, the inaugural program featured visionary filmmaker and one-of-a-kind personality John Waters. 2016's edition featured celebrated troubadour Rufus Wainwright."

I just learned about the Woman's Club of Albany yesterday, during the Holiday House tour. It's a really large space that is chock full of character, and they rent it out for parties of the type Maureen is interested in.
