Sugar Ray

Sugar Ray 

• Concert: Sugar Ray is on tap for the Thursday, Aug. 1 edition of River Rhythms at Monteith Riverpark in downtown Albany.

This is sort of a return engagement for the band, which shared a bill with Snot at the Venetian Theater in April 1997, two months before the "Fly" single was released. The free concert is set to begin at 7 p.m.

Weekend: 'Unexpected Guest'

• Theater: Just three performances remain of the Albany Civic Theater's production of the Agatha Christie whodunit “The Unexpected Guest."

Information/tickets: albanycivic.org.
