The Columbia Arts Team is gearing up for its Local 518 music showcase, the Capital Area Indie Fest at The Egg in Albany on Saturday night (October 6). But before that concert rolls around, CAT is also prepping for the Exit Factor competition at The Linda in Albany at 7:30pm on Thursday (October 4).
Ten performers – both solo acts and bands – have thrown their hats into the ring for the Exit Factor, and they’ll each have 10 minutes in the spotlight to perform their original music. The grand prize winner will perform at the Capital Area Indie Fest on Saturday at The Egg. The runner-up will win 100 duplicated CDs digi-printed in clamshell packaging, donated by HAVE, Inc.
Thursday’s competition will be hosted by CAT co-founder Christina Dellea. And the panel of judges will include Chris Wienk (WEXT-FM), Paul Antonell (Clubhouse Studios) and Mary Darcy (All Over Albany). But the audience will also be voting, so come on down and support your favorite local musicians. Tix are $12; seniors and students $10.
