Performances in New York

Posted on October 12th, 2011 by administrator

Illusion of Joy will be playing a few shows in New York in the next few weeks. Specifically, there are three performances currently scheduled in the Empire State.

The first of these will be at Hurley’s Nightclub on the SUNY Potsdam campus Thursday, October 27th. Once again, Illusion of Joy will grace or defile the Hurley’s stage as the opening act for their annual Halloween open mic. The show begins at 7:00PM and is open to all ages. And unless somebody has been walking around with a smouldering bundle of sage, Lehman Hall is still haunted.

The second show occurs Saturday, November 12th at The Shop in Ithaca. Boston group Ellis Ashbrook will be headlining this all ages show with Illusion of Joy opening for them at 7:00PM.

Finally, Illusion of Joy heads to New York’s Capital Region on Sunday, November 13th for an early performance at Moon & River Café in Schenectady. Once again open to all ages, this show requires getting up a little earlier than one usually would on a weekend as it begins at 3:00PM. Come back to Moon & River Café at 7:30PM for The Rkstar Open Mic.

And there you have it – three shows just north of Illusion of Joy’s home base in Pennsylvania; a strange land where gay marriage is legal and the roads seem completely devoid of potholes. See below for driving, biking or walking directions:
