The Boys are celebrating at 8pm tonight at Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs. Tix are $18.
JO HENLEY: The Boston-based roots-rockin’ Americana quartet returns to singer-guitarist-bandleader Andy Campolieto’s hometown to celebrate the release of their third full-length album, “Mohawk,” an ambitious collection of songs which just happen to be all about the city of Schenectady. And, yes, they’ll be celebrating in the Electric City at 10pm tonight with a CD release party at Katie O’Byrne’s. With Chris Cagnina of O.W.L. opening the show. FREE.
