Weekend Activities, May 5 & 6

It's an unusual weekend in that the biggest shows are on Sunday, not Saturday. So we'll work backwards.

Sunday night: Les Yeux Noir at the State Theater. One never knows what the hot new music will be, nor why. Wherefore Jewish gypsy French violin and vocal swing, which is one of the hottest right now? Find it out with this torrid octet tonight, at 7:30 pm.

Sunday afternoon: Bear Fox, Richie Stearns, and Lydia Garrison play a benefit concert for the Akwesasne Freedom School. Ms. Fox sings lovely songs from and about her Native American heritage. There will be corn soup and fry bread. Suggested donation is $8, with kids under 10 free, and child care provided. 3 pm at the Lehman Alternative Community School.

Saturday: The Fountains, I-Town Records artists, at the Chapter House, 10 pm.

Have fun -
