Saturday night is party night!
And if you want to hit all of the CD release parties crammed onto the calendar, you’d better gas up the tank ’cause the celebrations cover the Nippertown front from Albany to Troy to Saratoga Springs:
Churning up their patented brand of hardcore thrash and melodic punk, Albany’s After the Fall celebrates the release of their brand spankin’ new CD “Eradicate” with a show at Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany at 7pm on Saturday. Joining the trio in their festivities will be a whopping bunch o’ bands, including Defeater, Make Do and Mend, Coughing Fit, Legit!, All Teeth, Stereo State and Living With Lions. Admission is $7.
And Troy roots-rockers Sumac will be celebrating the release of their new self-titled, five-song EP with a party and performance at the Ale House in Troy at 9pm on Saturday. Grainbelt opens the show. Admission is $8, which includes a copy of the new CD.
Finally, Lake George singer-songwriter Rich Ortiz is a North Country favorite, who garnered quite a few new Albany fans with his performance at LarkFest last month. The 21st century one-man-band is celebrating the release of his new album, “Face of a Lion,” at Putnam Den is Saratoga Springs at 10pm on Saturday. Opening the show is Scott Sylvester. Admission is free.
