As you may recall, the Local Legends Live festival was originally slated to take place outdoors on the Empire State Plaza in Albany, on Saturday, September 8, but the entire event was cancelled due to the severe weather forecast – the same torrential storm that curtailed the Albany Riverfront Jazz Festival before any of the headliners made it to the stage.
Ah, but as it turns out, Local Legends Live wasn’t actually cancelled at all. It was merely postponed.
Local Legends Live has been re-scheduled for indoors at the Empire State Plaza Convention Center at 5pm on Friday, October 19. Mike Doughty is still signed on as the headliner, but there have been some changes in the schedule of the Local 518 bands.
Doors will open at 4:30pm, and, yes, admission is still FREE.
Here’s the line-up of bands for the fest:
