But three new CD releases will be celebrated at Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany at 8pm on Friday (December 4).
And they’re all rolling out of that magical musical factory known as the B3nson Recording Company, Nippertown’s most charming and hardest working local independent record label and music collective.
B3nson is pleased to welcome brand new homegrown debut from the solo acoustic act Littlefoot (aka, Seth Tillinghast), who brings lush vocals to a sparse musical setting on “If You Give a Grouch a Guitar.”
Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics (Ryan Stewart and Richard Nolan Jr. of fellow B3nson band Beware! The Other Head of Science) serve up a haunting batch of a dozen thoroughly original tunes on their full-length debut, “The End of Mont Pleasant.”
In addition, Friday’s celebration and performance will also serve as the launching pad for the fourth full-length CD by original B3nsonites, the Hoborchestra. The brainchild of Sgt. Dunbar & the Hobo Banned‘s multi-instrumentalist Tim Koch, “I Only Eat You to Make Me Stronger” finds him collaborating with a who’s-who of B3nsonites, including Aaron Smith (Scientific Maps), Matthew Loiacono (courtesy of Collar City Records), Alex Muro (Sgt. Dunbar), Richard Nolan (the Boston Celtics), Jen O’Connor and Eric Krans (We are Jeneric).
At Friday’s celebration, all three new B3nson records will be available for sale individually ($5) and in a package deal for all three ($12).
