After a considerable hiatus, Swamp Baby is back in the saddle once again. In fact, the band is playing twice this week.

On Thursday, Swamp Baby will share the stage with Andy Sink (of the Sifters) and Dan Johnson & His Expert Sidemen at Grand Street Community Arts in Albany for the first in a series of seasonal cocktail parties dubbed Grand Street Eats with lots of locally produced food, art and music. The event runs from 6-9pm, and admission is $20.

Then on Sunday, Swamp Baby steps into the spotlight once again, performing at the second annual Restoration Festival at St. Joseph’s Church in Albany at 2:40pm. Eric Krans of We Are Jeneric will be joining the band for their entire set on drums/percussion at Rest Fest.
