FLASHBACK FOTO: Name the Band! Win a Prize!

Flashback Foto

So sorry, but there was no winner last week

But now it’s time to try again. Yes, it’s FLASHBACK FOTO Thursday once again, and we went digging, digging, digging through the vast Nippertown archive bunker to unearth yet another fabulous band promo photo from years gone by.

Post continues below...

Thanks to the fine folks at the Spectrum 8 Theatres in Albany, we’re giving away a FREE PAIR OF MOVIE PASSES to the 12th commenter who correctly identifies this band. Please keep in mind that all of the weekly Flashback Fotos are of local Nippertown bands of yesteryear, which should help steer you away from guesses like the Marcy Playground, Mr. Big or Martha & the Muffins.

To make it fair, comments on this post won’t show up until we announce the winner on Monday afternoon. One comment per person, please, and be sure to leave your email address, too. We won’t publish it, but we’ll use it to contact you if you win. Good luck! Congratulations to Susan Quatrowski for being the 12th person to correctly identify the Morons – Nippertown punk rockers who played at the very first LarkFest, 30 years ago! PS – Cherry will will playing with her current outfit the Out 2 Lunch Band at the River Street Pub in Troy on Saturday night.
