Originally a solo project for singer-songwriter Ben Schneider, the Los Angeles-based indie folk band Lord Huron has grown into a full ensemble, and the band made quite an impression last week in their Nippertown debut at Jennings Landing in Albany. Headlining the latest installment of the free Alive at Five concert series, Lord Huron is touring in support of their debut album, Lonesome Dreams, and they’ve landed such choice gigs as South by Southwest, Outside Lands and Lollapalooza.

Opening the show was Saratoga singer-songwriter MaryLeigh Roohan, who came armed with an all-star batch of backing musicians for her set in support of her latest album, Skin and Bone.

The Alive at Five concert series continues at 5pm today (Thursday, July 17) with a Local 518 triple-bill of homegrown music from Eastbound Jesus, Stellar Young and Hard Soul at Jennings Landing in Albany’s Corning Preserve. Admission is free, of course…

Meanwhile, you’ll have two opportunities to catch MaryLeigh Roohan in concert this weekend, as she plays a pair of free hometown Spa City gigs – 7pm Friday (July 18) as part of the Hats Off Saratoga Festival; and 12noon on Saturday (July 19) at Skidmore College’s Tang Museum.
