Review: Jason Isbell and Josh Ritter put on a heartfelt show at the Landmark Theatre Thursday night, treating fans to excellent musicianship and performing.

The word of the night at the Josh Ritter and Jason Isbell concert was “sincerity.”

Country music, coming from today’s “bro” artists, can come off as preachy and hollow. Either you’re being subjected to a three-minute long ode to a truck or the objectification of women disguised as a love song.

Not so with Ritter and Isbell. The two put on a heartfelt show at the Landmark Theatre Thursday night and treated fans to excellent musicianship and performing.

Upstate New York Ballet's "Dracula" is a performance full of manic grace.

 

“Dracula” opens with Jonathan Harker (Marco Abdelnor) in a nightmare, surrounded by ghosts and demons. As Jonathan writhes in terror on the bed, the corps de ballet surrounds him, frantically working their arms and hands in and out above him.  Occasionally, individual dancers break away from the corps to perform a solo of pirouettes and extensions, or the entire corps leaves Jonathan’s bed to cover the stage in chaotic movement.
