If you’re not headed to the Solid Sound Festival at MASS MoCA on Saturday, but you’re still looking to catch some music, you may want to head up to Shepard Park in Lake George for the fourth annual Adirondack Homegrown Music Festival.
It’s a free, all-ages bash showcasing original music from around all around the region. It runs from 12noon until 8pm on Saturday, promising a big batch of non-stop music and fun. (Don’t forget that there’s a lakeside beach right behind the stage.)
Eight bands will be performing, including the Woodshed Boys, Flakjacket, Three Dimensional Figures, Capital Zen, Evil TV, Adam Brockway, Loaded Mojo and Center Of Detention.
Compilation CDs featuring all the festival’s local original talent will be available, and for the second year in a row, all proceeds will benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities of New York.
