It was Sgt. Dunbar & the Hobo Banned’s get-out-of-town send-off concert at Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany earlier this month, as the band ramped up for their national tour. (They’re in Austin this weekend for the big SXSW fest.) The Valentine’s performance also doubled as a CD release party for their new album, “Twelve Horse Riding Songs.”
And, of course, Sgt. Dunbar brought along some friends to add to the party atmosphere – Ashley Pond and BEWARE! The Other Head of Science.
And stay tuned, Sgt. Dunbar is slated to wrap up their tour with a homecoming concert back at Valentine’s on Sunday, April 10.
