The Basilica Soundscape festival returns September 15-17 at Basilica Hudson. And there two are updates:

+ The full lineup is now out. It's below.

+ Single-day tickets are now available. They're $40 each for Friday or Saturday. Weekend passes are now $75. (There's also camping available for an additional charge.)

Festival blurbage:

For the sixth straight year, Basilica Hudson's Founders and Creative Directors Melissa Auf der Maur and Tony Stone are working in collaboration with The Creative Independent Editor in Chief Brandon Stosuy to program Basilica SoundScape, a carefully curated weekend that's been called "the anti festival" by various publications for offering of a thoughtful mix of music, visual art, and literature. This year they welcome back previous BSS Creative Director Michael Renaud to handle all aspects of visual design for the event and have added the talents of a special guest curator, Jenn Pelly, editor at Pitchfork, and author of a forthcoming book on the Raincoats.

As you know, Basilica Hudson is in a converted industrial space in Hudson (near the Amtrak station), about a 45-minute drive from Albany.

The National "Guilty Party" at Basilica Hudson

the band The National 2017

The band The National will be at Basilica Hudson a "collaborative concert" with a handful of other acts July 14 and 15. Tickets are on sale now -- they're $50. It's a fundraiser for the venue.

The shows are pegged to today's release of the new single from the indie rock band titled "Guilty Party." Show Blurbage:

Today, The National have released the single "Guilty Party" off their forthcoming album, Sleep Well Beast out September 8th on 4AD. Sleep Well Beast was produced by Aaron Dessner with co-production by Bryce Dessner and Matt Berninger and recorded at Aaron's Hudson Valley, NY studio, Long Pond. To celebrate the forthcoming album the band will be throwing a Guilty Party at Basilica Hudson on July 14th and 15th. The collaborative concert will be performed in the round and will feature Buke & Gase, Nadia Sirota, Mouse on Mars, Sō Percussion and more. The band has released 700 tickets for each night and they're now available for purchase here with a portion of ticket sales benefiting Basilica Hudson. Each guest attending the show will receive a "Guilty Party" 7 inch double "A" split with "The System Only Dreams In Total Darkness." ...
Video artist Casey Reas will be contributing live projection mapping for the event. Reas also directed the music video for the single, "Guilty Party."

Seven hundred tickets for each night isn't much, so we're guessing this sells out and probably quickly. If you'd like to go, it's a good idea to grab tickets sooner rather than later.

Rufus Wainwright at Basilica Hudson

rufus wainwright 2016

Singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright is set to play a show at Basilica Hudson October 22. Tickets are on sale now -- they're $50.

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.

Basilica Soundscape
Just a reminder that Basilica Soundscape is coming up September 16-18. Explosions in the Sky is this year's headliner.

My grandmother has Alzheimers and sometimes comes to stay with us in Troy. Last week the absolutely highlight of her day was seeing the hundreds of crows that came streaming by the window at our apartment. I watched her go from completely unresponsive to engaged... stringing questions together and returning to her old joyful self for the half hour she watched those birds was enough to endear crows to me forever.

If you see someone running around throwing bird seed in Riverfront Park yelling "COME ON DOWN, BIRD FRIENDS!", it's me.
