It was a nighty serious Local 518 music scene happening last weekend, as Overit in Albany unveiled its new Overit Studios to the public. But it was more than just a grand opening for a new recording studio.

It was a concert…
It was an art exhibit…
And most of all, it was quite the party…

In conjunction with Albany’s monthly 1st Friday, Overit hosted the five-hour “Organized Sound: The Overit Studios Launch Event” to highlight the talents of Local 518 musicians and artists. The bash featured visual art by Phil Montelone, Nippertown photographer Andrzej Pilarczyk and Brendan Halayko. In addition, there was a showcase of National guitars by Michael Eck (yes, you could play them), an exhibit of Beatles memorabilia by Rick Bedrosian and a display of Pure Sixty-Four Amps.

Of course, you can’t launch a new recording studio without some music, and last Friday’s celebration featured a nice variety of acclaimed Greater Nippertown bands, including Stellar Young, Immaculate Heart and Giant Gorilla Dog Thing.

And, yes, the party was populated by a who’s-who of musicians from the Local 518:
