The University at Albany has quite a reputation as a party school. So it should come as no surprise that the college’s radio station knows how to throw a party, too.
The festivities will feature radio station alumni DJing on the floors in between band sets, a variety of prizes from bands and local businesses, and, of course, it just wouldn’t be a birthday party without party hats, balloons and birthday cake.
And naturally, the bash celebrates a wide swath of music, too.
Want hot local music? Barons in the Attic will wrap up the musical festivities on the downstairs stage.
Here’s the complete schedule for WCDB-FM’s 35th Anniversary Bash:
11:45pm - The Pains of Being Pure at Heart
