FRIDAY (JULY 18)
Party Boat, Pony in the Pancake and Linear North
The Garage Bands concert series kicks off with a triple-header. The Saratoga Springs-based Party Boat has a signature beach-punk sound, while Pony in the Pancake is a psychedelic surf quartet with songs that revolve around the innocence of love and heartache. Linear North twists the blues into psychedelic slabs of sound that will leave you feeling like you’re free-falling through the center of the earth.

AUGUST 15
Big Frank & the Bargain Bingers and Blackcat Elliot
Big Frank and the Bargain Bingers is a broiling gumbo of amped-up country, surf-twang and classic R&B, while the three-piece Blackcat Elliot writes garage rock songs for the blue collar folk, the broken-hearted, the walked-on, the unlucky and the unsung heroes.

SEPTEMBER 19
Hammer Hawk and Hill Haints
Hammer Hawk is a “post-hamburger” rock trio that enjoys “pro-wrestling, hockey, and long walks on the beach.” Hill Haints is a primal garage-punk trio that brings a sonic assault to every show.
