CAPITOL REGION NCPCF PRESENTS THE NEWBURGH STING
Monday, Aug 3 - 7:00 pm, FREE

Capitol Region National Coalition to Protect Civil Freedoms

presents

The Newburgh Sting

Just 60 miles north of New York City sits the poverty-stricken town of Newburgh, where, in 2009, four men were LURED by a shady Pakistani man into a plot to bomb Jewish centers in the Bronx. But once the men were on board, their leader, who doubled as an FBI undercover agent, led them straight to the authorities. Their arrest was hailed as a national victory in the war on terror. Using never-before-seen footage from hidden cameras, David Heilbroner and Kate Davis investigate just what homegrown terrorism truly means in this shocking and galvanizing exposé.

"Fourth Man Out"

The indie comedy "Fourth Man Out," filmed in and around Albany last summer, tells the story of Adam, your average working-class auto mechanic living in small-town America, and his tightly-knit band of bros -- Chris, Nick and Ortiz -- with whom he does everything. On his 24th birthday, Adam decides it's time to finally tell his friends and family that he's gay. Will his straight-as-an-arrow best bros have his back? A lighthearted and unexpectedly subversive comedy about coming out of the blue-collar closet.

BOB SCHNEIDER
Thursday, Aug 20 - 8:00 pm, $20.00
Buy Tickets

Bob Schneider's fellow Texans as well as his rabid U.S. fanbase will testify to his abilities, as he has become the most awarded singer songwriter in Austin's history, winning over thirty Austin Music Awards. His scruffy good looks and strong, husky voice provide a good complement to his semi-confessional songwriting. The real beauty of Schneider's artistic career is about the freedom to constantly write, record and stockpile songs. While he's already released hundreds of songs with his bands, Schneider estimates there were at least a thousand songs that didn't fit his band's concepts.

The Latest News

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
