GASLAND PART II
Wednesday, Jun 12, 2013 - 7:00 pm, FREE



Gasland Part II trailer

Followed by Q&A with director Josh Fox.

In the 2010 Oscar®-nominated exposé Gasland, director Josh Fox profiled hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," the process of injecting a pressurized mixture of water, sand and chemicals down a drilled well, causing layers of rock deep in the earth to crack and release natural gas. The film inspired a national dialogue over the multi-layered environmental dangers at risk. With Gasland Part II, Fox examines the long-run impact of the controversial process, including poisonous water, earthquakes and neurological damage, placing his focus on the people whose lives have been irreparably changed.

Traveling from the Gulf of Mexico to the heart of Texas and back up to the Delaware River basin, he thoroughly investigates the effects of this once-touted energy source, as well as the industry's equally disturbing reaction to negative claims via smear campaigns and lawsuits. Gasland Part II shows how the anti-fracking movement has done its best to amplify its message while the million-dollar conglomerates employ PSY-OPS tactics to shut it down. Unnerving interviews and shocking data underscore this scathing indictment of unregulated industry in Fox's powerful, not-to-be-missed follow-up.

Presented in part by New Yorkers Against Fracking

Mon, Feb 9, 2015 - Area bands celebrate indie music, WEXT

ALBANY -- Holly Taormina shouted into the mic halfway through her 30-minute set, "If you want something done, you got to do it yourself." Perhaps that was the theme of the Indie Fest show Saturday night at the Linda, a fundraiser for WEXT radio and the Columbia Arts Team. Read More

Fri, Jan 17, 2014 - LIVE: Guy Davis @ WAMC-FM’s The Linda, 1/17/14

Guy Davis prefaced his lightning-fast opening number at The Linda by saying, "I've stolen so much, this song doesn't even have a title!" And even if he hadn't name-checked Charlie Patton and Blind Willie McTell after it was all over, the SRO crowd could easily hear about 100 years of the blues coursing through Davis' acoustic 12-string guitar, right down to the off-time beat that recalled Robert Johnson's original version of "Crossroads." But as Davis says he tells his students, "It's okay to steal music - but once you steal it, you have to earn it!" Read More
