Real Good for FREE: The Dana Park Concert Series @ Albany’s Dana Park

The fifth annual Dana Park Concert Series takes over Albany’s Dana Park this summer, beginning with the inaugural show tonight by the Dylan Perrillo Orchestra.

So, where is Dana Park, you ask? It’s that cute little pocket park located at the corner of Madison Avenue and Lark Street. So come on down and enjoy the free sounds at 7pm every Monday evening throughout the rest of the summer.

And in case of bad weather, the concerts will be moved indoors to the Lionheart Pub on Madison Avenue…

Here’s the line-up of Dana Park concerts for 2014:
