November 17, 2017 at 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
November 17th, 2017 at 8pm
Billboard’s Breakout Band at SXSW 2015, Huffington Post’s Sweet Sixteen of 2016, and Yahoo Music’s Top Ten Bands to Watch 2017..
Described by John Sinkevics of Local Spins as “genre-melding indie-folk,” The Accidentals (Sav Buist, Katie Larson, and Michael Dause) exhibit “a musical and lyrical sophistication that outstrips most mainstream bands.”
From 2012-2014, The Accidentals recorded three original albums, were guest artists on fifteen others, scored two films, and landed song placements in commercials, documentaries, and music compilations while playing over seven hundred live shows. THEN they graduated high school.
After graduation from world-renowned Interlochen Arts Academy, The Accidentals added multi-instrumentalist-singer-songwriter, Michael Dause, as their touring/studio drummer and opened for musical greats that include Andrew Bird, Sixto Rodriguez (Sugar Man), Brandi Carlile, Dar Williams, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Ben Sollee, Rusted Root, The Wailers, Keller Williams, Arlo Guthrie, Martin Sexton, and Joan Baez.
In 2015, they scored original pieces for a 72-piece orchestra, an opera-dance project with Son Lux, and a smaller 30-piece string ensemble, while touring the US extensively.
In June of 2016, they released a brand new, self-produced EP called Parking Lot, of which the single, “Michigan and Again,” went viral.
They’ve kicked off 2017 as major label artists, having signed a record deal with Sony Masterworks to release a full-length album in August.
Yahoo called it first – this is the band to watch.

Sydney Worthley is a shining young singer/songwriter from New York’s capital region who melds country, pop, folk, and rock into a sound all her own. Sydney’s debut album, Strong, is a 14-track roller coaster built on strength, courage, and perseverance. From the warm opening guitar riff of title-track “Strong”, to the brooding refrain of “Better Than You”, to the rock anthem “Part of Me”, Strong takes a powerful stance in the face of tremendous loss and heartbreak. We all, at some point, face hardship or feel isolated. Sydney is passionate about sharing her experiences to help others feel connected and understood, and to find the strength to go on.
In 2016, Sydney met Andrew Gabriel of Ambassador Music Group (AMG). Recognizing Sydney’s talent, Andrew signed her to AMG and, later that year, produced Strong. Sydney has since performed events for The Clark Art Institute in MA and Albany’s annual Tulip Festival. She has also earned a regular spot on Albany radio’s 88.3 WVCR and 97.7 WEXT. “One of our new discoveries in the Local 518 is Sydney Worthley. Sydney came in to record a 518 Session and has captivated our hearts. Yours will be captured, too.” -WEXT
