Throwback Thursday: The Figgs @ Skidmore, 1995

Thursday, May 19th, 2016

Yeah, it’s a bonus Throwback Thursday post…

We just couldn’t resist – a vintage performance by Local 518 rock & roll heroes the Figgs bashin’ it out at Skidmore College in their hometown of Saratoga Springs on April Fools Day, 1995.

And if you want to see what they’re up to these days, well, just head over to Club Helsinki in Hudson on Friday night (May 20) and catch the Figgs on a fab co-headlining bill with the bewigged Boston bad boys the Upper Crust.

Showtime is 9pm, and tickets are $18 in advance; $22 at the door. Rock on!
