Real Good for Free: Eddie Money @ Monument Square, 9/19

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

Raise your hand if you’d rather hear Eddie Money than Moby.

OK, that’s what we thought…

But that’s not gonna stop Mr. “Two Tickets to Paradise” from heading back into downtown Troy for what we’ve decided to call the second annual Free Money in the Collar City Concert. (You may recall that Money was in Troy for a free concert last August as the headliner at the New York-Penn League All-Star Fan Festival.)

Kicking off Troy’s Hudson Quadricentennial Celebration on Saturday, September 19, Eddie Money will once again be belting out his hits at a free outdoor performance in Monument Square. Rockabilly faves Johnny Rabb & the Jailhouse Rockers get the musical festivities underway at 2pm, followed by Money at 3pm.

Or of course, you could go to LarkFest…
Or the Irish 2000 Music and Arts Festival…
Or the Lake George Jazz Weekend…
TOO MANY CHOICES!!

Real Good for Free: Johnny Rabb & the Jailhouse Rockers @ Powers Park, 9/5/09

Monday, August 31st, 2009

Yes, the summer-long series of free concerts in Troy’s Powers Park was supposed to have ended this past weekend with the big Uncle Sam Jam.

But the August 22 was rained out, which means that the always revved-up rockabilly favorites Johnny Rabb and the Jailhouse Rockers were postponed. If you want to add a little old-school rock ‘n’ roll to your Labor Day weekend, Rabb and the boys will fire it up at Powers Park at 6pm Saturday, September 5.

Of course, it’s free.
