Last weekend’s PearlPalooza bash firmly established the one-day free street fest as a serious contender to LarkFest. With the huge crowds that jammed North Pearl Street, it was almost impossible to imagine that the WEXT-sponsored fest started just three short years ago with a couple hundred people in Albany’s downtown listening to Rusted Root on the Fourth of July weekend.

Two stages. Nine bands. One big party…

The stage at the corner of Pine Street hosted the Local 518 bands, and while it would have been better to mix the homegrown bands in with the national acts on both stages, the crowd at the local stage seemed just as enthusiastic as the one in front of the main stage.

From Titanics, who kicked off the stage at 1pm, to Eastbound Jesus, who closed up the stage with a rousing, hot-wired, rock’n’ roll hoedown, the bands were in top-notch form, proving that the Local 518 music scene has got a bunch of serious talent ready for bigger regional and national spotlights. And the crowds responded. Encores were demanded and granted; Wild Adriatic dipped into some Led Zeppelin. Stellar Young fans exhibited serious devotion to their fave band, waving giant cut-out heads of the bandmembers from the audience. And Eastbound Jesus once again had folks do-si-do-ing on the sidewalks and foot-stompin’ on the asphalt.

Ribs, bacon-flavored cotton candy, pulled pork sandwiches and bacon-flavored ice cream and so much more… Yes, pork products reigned supreme when the annual Troy Pig Out joined forces with BaconFest NY in Troy’s recently renovated Riverfront Park last month.

But in addition to the oodles of eats, the fest also offered up plenty of great music, too, including a headlining show by Blind Pig Records’ blues-slinger extraordinaire Albert Cummings and such Local 518 faves as Mirk, Stellar Young and the Twangbusters.

Reviews and photographs by Stanley Johnson

Last Saturday I found myself faced with a list of no less than eight events, most of them involving low-cost or free entertainment. You can’t be everywhere, but you can run around and try to hit up as much as possible. The winters around here are so miserable, that when the weather is hot with no serious storm threat, I decided to wring every last drop of fun out of the day. Or at least that was the plan.

I started out not far from home at the Mabee Farm Historic Site in Rotterdam Junction on the banks of the Mohawk River. (The river theme was essential on a 90-degree day). The Mabee House and the Franchere Center were hosting the Two Row Wampum Festival and visitors were coming by way of a lot of varied means, including a bicycle rally and by canoe. The Six Nations paddlers were scheduled to arrive to welcoming drums along the Mohawk, as part of an official ceremony along with many hands-on displays and activites at the farm. There were workshops and teaching lectures, such as “Creation Stories” by Kay Olan of the Mohawk Wolf Clan and “On Water Drums” by Dawn Standing Woman of the Mohawk Turtle Clan. We listened to the drum circle, watched a yarn spinning demonstration and learned about snapping turtles.
