“Super 400 just got back from Europe – five countries and 19 cities,” says Super 400 bassist Lori Friday, sounding none the worse for wear. “We’re exhausted and broke, but happy.”
Here’s a clip of Nippertown’s own rockin’ it in Spain last month:
Yes, Troy’s titanic power trio are home again after another jump across the Big Pond to support their latest album, “Sweet Fist.” And they’re celebrating with a big homecoming weekend and a back-to-back blast of intimate club-rocking right here in Nippertown.
At 10pm on Saturday, Super 400 rocks the message at McGeary’s in Albany. Please bring along a canned good or two. Donations will be collected for St. Joseph’s Church Food Pantry. McGeary’s has recently started hosting regular monthly acoustic showcases by Jim Gaudet & the Railroad Boys and Ramblin Jug Stompers, but Super 400’s show will mark the first rock show at the downtown club since Tess Collins (of Tess’ Lark Tavern) took over the management last month.
Then at 9pm on Sunday (Columbus Day eve), the band is heading back across the river for a hometown throwdown at the Ale House in Troy. “Wow, that’s weird. The Ale House will be 10/10/10,” Lori Friday points out. “That’s too much. Something otherworldly may occur, I am thinking.”
Admission is $7 at each show. “We’re hoping for some repeat customers, and two rooms full of happy faces,” says Friday.
