June 8th, 2016, 11:00 am by Greg

The Rock the Block concert series in Cohoes might have some people a bit confused. Why? Well, the 12-concert series takes place on Thursday evenings during the month of June, but then switches to Friday evenings for July and August.

All concerts start at 6pm and take place at Canal Square on Remsen Street in Cohoes. The series kicks off on Thursday (June 9) with the Jersey-based Bruce Springsteen tribute band, the B-Street Band.
