This year the annual Troy Pig Out was scaled back from two days to one single-day festival on Saturday, July 11, but Troy’s Riverfront Park was packed with lip-smacking variety of BBQ and a smokin’ selection of music from Maurizio, the Holly & Evan Band, the Matt Mirabile Band, Super 400 and horn-fueled headliners the Refrigerators.

Local 518 musicians came together once again to help those in need. The Low Beat in Albany hosted the Rebuild Nepal Benefit Fest last month to raise money for the victims of the recent devastating earthquakes in Nepal.

The line-up of bands who performed included Troy power trio Super 400, surf-fuzz combo Kimono Dragons, rock wunderkinds Dearest Vendetta, funk powerhouse Victory Soul Orchestra, country-blues troubadour Henry’s Rifle and indie faves Bear Grass.

All proceeds from the concert benefited the Shikshya Foundation Nepal, which is committed to supporting long-term, sustainable rebuilding efforts.

Yes, every once in a long while, the Rockin’ On the River concert series veers off the path dedicated to tribute-bands-and-nothing-but-tribute-bands to showcase some of the Local 518’s finest – bands that actually play their own music.

That certainly was the case earlier this month when two of Nippertown’s hardest rockin’ trios – Super 400 and Wild Adriatic – teamed up for a dynamic double bill in the Troy’s Green Island Bridge parking lot earlier this month.

The Fabulous Thunderbirds

Were you “Tuff Enuff” to brave the rain for the Fabulous Thunderbirds?

The inaugural Alive at Five concert of the summer season got off to a mighty soggy start, and despite the best efforts of the concerts series organizers to try to get the show in before the sky opened up – the T-Birds took the stage 20 minutes earlier than the usual headliners’ start time – the blues fans in Albany’s Riverfront Park got soaked with a never hard nor heavy, but always steady rain from the moment frontman Kim Wilson launched the band into the opening “Wait On Time” straight through to the show-closing encore of “I Want to Believe.”

Wilson and his current incarnation of the T-Birds focused on tunes from their latest album, “On the Verge,” marking a distinct shift away from the blues and venturing into a deep soul groove that balanced equal influences from Memphis and Muscle Shoals. “Lovin’ Time,” “Runnin’ From the Blues” and the slinky slow grind of “Lonely Highway” emerged as some of the new album’s most potent selections, and the crowd roared with delight during the latter when Wilson moaned the lyric, “It’s a lonely stretch of highway, and the rain is pouring down…”

“Could it be true? Revolution Hall is going to be rocking like in its heyday?” That was the predominant thought likely rattling in the minds of those walking into Revolution Hall on the chilly Friday eve before Christmas Eve. With Super 400 headlining a triple bill – also featuring the Charlie Watts Riots and Fort Rooster – to ring out 2011 and stock the shelves of a local food food bank, the answer was a resounding yes!

Sure, the interior of Revolution Hall had changed quite a bit since its jarring transition to a special events venue, but the vibe before Super 400 went on was one of intense anticipation and good will. Once on stage, the finest rock trio on the scene today ripped into “Needle Down” from their recent masterpiece “Sweet Fist” and never let up. A pair of songs from “3 and the Beast” – “Push Back Now” and “It’s Gonna Burst” – realigned the shockras of everybody from the floor to the balconies, while “Green Grass End” had many singing along to its irresistible chorus. Bassist Lori Friday took the lead vocals on the funky original “Flashlight,” and “On Fire” had folks out on the dance floor.

Yes, it was the official LarkFest after party, but it was more than that. It was a celebration of a coming together, as well as a departure.

Super 400 and the Charlie Watts Riots teamed up for a dynamite double bill over at Valentine’s Music Hall that kept the rockin’ going on well past dark.
