Garage Bands Concert Series Returns

Garage Bands Concert Series Returns

July 21, 2017 | Adult Services

The award-winning Garage Bands in the Garage concert series returns to Albany Public Library this summer with a kickoff concert on Friday, July 21.

Each all-ages, after-hours show features live music by two talented local bands.

The free concerts take place in the garage of the Washington Ave. Branch (behind the library at the Elk St. parking lot entrance).

All shows are free and take place on Friday evenings from 6 to 8 pm:

July 21 | Front Business and Rob Boss
Front Business | “Soul/rock band…we want to give you something to feed your mind.” – Front Business
Rob Boss | Trio. “Alternative rock, indie rock.” – Rob Boss

Aug. 18 | Stoker and Sun Natives
Stoker | Three-piece (guitar, bass, drums) band. “Alternative, acoustic depression, electric anxiety.” – Stoker
Sun Natives | “Garage, indie rock, psychedelic.” – Sun Natives

Sept. 15 | Blind Crow and The Lazy Suns
Blind Crow | “The Albany-based string band…plays bluegrass, folk and ‘dawg music,’ the term often used to describe pioneering mandolinist David Grisman’s blend of bluegrass, jazz and other musical genres.” – Daily Gazette
The Lazy Suns | “If you took the Flying Burrito Brothers, the Beatles, Townes Van Zandt, Tom Petty, Hank Williams and put them all together in a stewing pot to simmer you would have The Lazy Suns.” – The Lazy Suns

Each show also features a CD garage sale with $1 items. We encourage you to bring a lawn chair and some snacks to enhance your enjoyment of the concert!
