The big long series of free outdoor concerts at the Empire State Plaza in Albany have been pared waaaaay back this year.
But they’re still calling it the At the Plaza concert series. And they’re still going to host a launch party for the series.
Three local bands – the Blue Machine, the Refrigerators and the Hill Hollow Band – are each slated to perform at the At the Plaza launch party, which is taking place on the Empire State Plaza at 5pm on Wednesday.
Admission, of course, is free.
