Black 47

Black 47

It wasn’t the most glamorous of gigs for New York City’s Black 47, who played two sets in the beer garden pavilion at the Saratoga County Fair on Saturday night, scheduled between an auction of chainsaw carvings and Rosaire’s troupe of racing pigs. (Those pokey “racing” pigs are no thoroughbreds, that’s for sure.)

A Hulk Hogan impersonator in red tights wandered in as the Celtic rock group -led by their ever-amiable frontman Larry Kirwan, sporting green suede shoes – tried gamely to entertain the smallish crowd who entered the beer garden area to drink Killian’s Red at picnic tables sheltered from the night’s intermittent downpours.
