Weekend Roundup

September 16th, 2009, 3:29 pm by Greg

This just might be the single busiest weekend of the year, so we really don’t want to hear a single peep out of anyone complaining that there’s nothing to do in Nippertown. Seriously.

Here are just a few suggestions:

Los Lobos

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

September 15th, 2009, 11:14 am by Greg

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…
