Garage Bands Concerts Start Friday

The award-winning Garage Bands in the Garage concert series returns to Albany Public Library this summer with the first show on Friday, June 21, featuring The Hearing Aides and Mod Fiction.


The all-ages, after-hours shows feature live music by great local bands playing in the garage of the Main Library (at the Elk Street parking lot entrance). All shows run on select Friday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m. and also feature a CD/DVD garage sale with $1 items. The sale also features one-of-kind Garage Bands logo t-shirts and tote bags, with an all-new design for the 2013 concert series.


June 21 — The Hearing Aides and Mod Fiction

6-8 p.m., Main Library, 161 Washington Avenue

The Hearing Aides are a power trio that likes to play loud music that is also kind of pretty…sometimes. Mod Fiction is an alternative rock band with a sound that merges early ‘90s alt-rock with ‘60s pop-garage rock and ‘70s punk rock.


July 19 — The Pistolwhips and The Mysteios

6-8 p.m., Main Library, 161 Washington Avenue

The Pistolwhips are a trio of plaid-clad rockers that gets the audience dancing with its own blend of rock, punk, and indie music. The Mysteios are billed as one of Albany’s premier garage bands with a “raucous, trance-inducing, three-chord, fuzzed out” sound according to Nippertown.


August 16 — Boxer Brown and New Red Scare

6-8 p.m., Main Library, 161 Washington Avenue

Boxer Brown is a family punk band. New Red Scare plays fancy, fast, raw rock from the harbingers of the Whiskey Revolution.


September 20 — Goldtooth and Masai

6-8 p.m., Main Library, 161 Washington Avenue

Goldtooth features real emceeing with a fresh, loud, live band. Masai has a unique brand of music that demonstrates contemporary influences of modern rap combined with the essence of the Golden Age of hip hop.


The shows are co-sponsored by 97.7 WEXT. For more information about the concert series, call the Main Library at 427-4349.
