The Fray

Radio station 99.5 The River hosted its “Fall Night In” concert at Albany’s Palace Theatre this past Tuesday night, and while King Crimson was churning up a massive night of prog-rock over at The Egg, the Palace took on a more pop-oriented triple-bill with the Fray headlining the evening’s festivities in support of their latest album, Helios.

But it was A Great Big World – keyboardist-vocalist Ian Axel and vocalist-trumpeter Chad Vaccarino with their backing band – who all but stole the show with their omni-present hit, “Say Something” (co-written by Albany High grad Mike Campbell).

Pop singer-songwriter Andy Grammer opened the show, and brought out a bunch Local 518 friends and contest winners to sing along with him onstage for “Back Home.”
