September 5th, 2014, 12:00 pm by Greg

It’s that time of the year for Albany’s fall street festivals, and the line-up has already been announced for the big LarkFest bash on Saturday, September 20. But before that, PearlPalooza is just about a week away from taking over North Pearl Street in Albany.

The fifth annual PearlPalooza takes place on Saturday, September 13. It’s a free, all-ages street fest in downtown Albany featuring seven bands playing non-stop music on two stages from 1-8:30pm.

And if you’re too cool to hang with the hoi polloi, you can opt to buy a PearlPalooza VIP pass ($20), which will give you access to a VIP-only access viewing area right up front and close to the stage. VIP passes are on sale now here.

Here’s the line-up and complete performance schedule of the bands at the 2014 PearlPalooza:

SOUTH STAGE:
1pm: The Weeks, indie rockers from Mississippi in support of their new EP, Buttons
3pm: Slaptop, funky dance music from San Francisco
5pm: Wild Adriatic, Saratoga’s own soul-rockers

NORTH STAGE:
2pm: Northern Faces, homegrown rockers
4pm: Royal Bangs, indie rockers from Tennessee
6pm: Broods, brother-and-sister dream-pop duo from New Zealand
7:15pm: Terraplane Sun, sunshine pop-meets-dirty blues from California

And then of course, there’s the official after-party, which kicks off at 9pm at the Hollow Bar + Kitchen right there on North Pearl Street. Local 518 faves Mirk and Rival Galaxies will be pumpin’ out the tunes, and admission is FREE.
