For the third consecutive year, jam band favorites moe. played New Year’s Eve in the spotlight at Albany’s Palace Theatre. And this year, they also kicked off Greater Nippertown’s 2016 concert calendar with a follow-up concert on New Year’s Day.

For the first big concert of 2016, moe. stuck with the “Star Wars” theme, which they launched with their Halloween concert, weaving selections from John Williams’ classic “Star Wars” scores throughout the evening’s proceedings.

And if that wasn’t enough to keep moe. fans in a happy, festive mood, the Palace concession stands were also selling Hoppy Hour Hero on tap, the custom craft beer conjured up by moe. in collaboration with Saranac Brewery.

Now that’s how to start the new year off right…
