The popular Basilica Farm & Flea spring market is set to return to Basilica Hudson May 6-7. Blurbage:
Each market features a diverse group of regional vendors selling their wares alongside locally-sourced, farm-fresh foods. The markets embody love of vintage and recycled, locally-sourced agriculture and the beautifully handmade. With over 10,000 square feet of raw space, Basilica Farm & Flea is the only market of this scale in the region, an integral part of Basilica Hudson's arts and cultural programs.
This event is the counterpart to the annual post-Thanksgiving market. It's open Saturday, May 6 from 10 am-6 pm and Sunday, May 7 from 11 am-5 pm. Admission for both days is $5, free for kids under 12.

Wainwright's concert will be part of Basilica Hudson's Pioneering People Series, "a bi-annual program celebrating pioneering artists across a range of disciplines, and including a benefit performance." Blurbage:
Wainwright 's performance will take the crowd back to his roots of intimate performances in dark, Montreal piano bars decades ago, a monumental period of creative freedom and expression when Wainwright and childhood friend and Basilica Hudson co-founder musician Melissa Auf der Maur found themselves and their voices in music, which propelled them into a lifetime of friendship and commitment to the performing arts.
The performance will provide the audience with a striking juxtaposition to Wainwright's recent extravagant performances of Judy Garland with full orchestra and touring with his Prima Donna opera, as well as his newest album Take All My Loves: 9 Shakespeare Sonnets. We are thrilled to announce Wainwright coming to Hudson on the heels of his ambitious Carnegie Hall concert.
Just a reminder that Basilica Soundscape is coming up September 16-18. Explosions in the Sky is this year's headliner.

Tickets are currently $75 for a weekend pass ($125 with camping) / $60 for students and seniors. There are also Saturday and Sunday day passes for $40. (This has been a popular event in past years, so getting tickets sooner rather than later isn't a bad idea.)
This site-specific, weekend-long experimental music and art event in its fifth year draws unconventional connections, parallels and collaborations between a diverse array of artists, curated by Brandon Stosuy (Kickstarter), Brian DeRan (Leg Up! Management), Melissa Auf der Maur and Tony Stone (Basilica Hudson). Basilica SoundScape is a carefully curated two-day event that's been called "the anti-festival" for offering a thoughtful mix of music, visual art, and literature. Far from a typical music festival, Basilica SoundScape features live concert performances, conceptual sound performances, author readings, installations, collaborations, curated local vendors and artisans, on-site activities and more, creating an immersive, innovative weekend of art, music, and culture.
The full lineup is listed after the jump.
Basilica Hudson has a new festival July 30 -- Read and Feed -- that looks to pair food and literature. Blurbage for discussions at the fest:
// Legendary authors Lydia Davis (Can't and Won't: Stories) and Lynne Tillman (What Would Lynne Tillman Do?) will engage with each other and the audience in a wine tasting led by oenophile and power reader Michael Albin of Hudson Wine Merchants.
// "Food, Farming, and Spirituality," will feature celebrity chef and cookbook author Zak Pelaccio (Fish & Game, Eat With Your Hands), author Marie Mutsuki Mockett (Where the Dead Pause, and the Japanese Say Goodbye), and organic farmer Sarah Chase (Chaseholm Farm), in conversation with renowned chef, cookbook author, and end-of-life doula Rozanne Gold (Radically Simple, Cooking 1-2-3, and many others).
// "Reading, Drinking, Eating, Writing" will explore food as a language, and will be moderated by author, mixologist, fortune-teller, teacher extraordinaire Rosie Schapp (Drinking with Men, New York Times "Drinking" columnist) and feature award-winning poet and President of the Poetry Society of America, Kimiko Hahn (Brain Fever: Poems), author and "urban forager" Ava Chin (Eating Wildly: Foraging for Life, Love and the Perfect Meal), and true crime writer and serial killer specialist Harold Schecter (Man-Eater: The Life and Legend of an American Cannibal).
The Basilica is partnering with the Community of Literary Magazines and Presses on the event. There will also be a marketplace with food products and titles from small presses (including cookbooks).
Read and Feed is Saturday, July 30 from 5-11 pm. Tickets are $20 ahead / $25 at the door.
Parts of the event will also be broadcast (over the air and online) by WGXC 90.7-FM.

Waters will be arriving on the heels of his recent Lincoln Center Retrospective, celebrating his 50 years in film and his recent bestselling book release Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes Across America. Waters, who has been dubbed "the Pope of Trash" and branded "O for Offensive" by the Catholic Church, earned his bad reputation by turning bad taste into high art. Part confession, part Vaudeville act, he'll share with a live theater audience in Hudson his origins in the trash genre and his subsequent adventures navigating everything from fashion to true crime.
The show is a benefit for the the AIDS Council of Northeastern New York and the Basilica's film and media programming. It starts at 8 pm on Saturday.
