Flashback Foto: Name the Band! Win a Prize!

Flashback Foto


Yes, we had another big winner in last week’s contest.

And now it’s time to do it all over again. It’s FLASHBACK FOTO Thursday, so we went digging, digging, digging through the vast underground 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 9th 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 Sixpence None the Richer, Sepultura or Salamander Crossing.

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 correct, working email address, too. We won’t publish it, but we’ll use it to contact you if you win. Good luck!
