Festival Fever: Bogies Repair Fest, 5/9-11/14

297 Ontario St., Albany.

Bogies in Albany is hosting a three-day festival of head-bangin’ fun this weekend. More than that, however, it’s a benefit to help raise funds to spruce up the venue and keep it running. The doors open at 6pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday )May 9-11), so it you’re looking for something a little heavier than the usual Tulip Festival fare, Bogies is the place to be.

The bill features at least a half-dozen bands each night – including the Clay People (that’s right, the Clay People) on Saturday – as well as Shyste, Odd1, DezMatic, Scribe 1, Mr. Blackout and DJ RawThreat performing in the front room during setbreaks.

Admission is pay-what-you-will, or as the folks from Bogies put it “pay-what-you-can-afford.”
