Real Good for FREE: Upper Madison Monday Night Concert Series, Albany

The performances will take place at 7pm on Monday evenings, beginning tonight (July 16) with 2 Broads With Alotta Sound.

Concert goers are encouraged to bring their own blankets and lawn chairs. While outside alcohol is not allowed, the Elks bar will be open with a special “beer garden” area near the performance. In case of rain, the event will be moved indoors to the Elks Club.
