Northern Faces

Yeah, it’s all a little confusing…

Last week, Northern Lights in Clifton Park changed its name to the Upstate Concert Hall, and it appears that a lot of folks are still flummoxed by the change.

And on Sunday, the Upstate Concert Hall will play host to Around the World And Back as the opening act for British pop-rockers the Kooks – but they’re not Around the World And Back anymore. The band has changed its name to Northern Faces. (Well, at least something will still be Northern at the former Northern Lights.)

Oh, and by thee way, there’s been a personnel change in the line-up for the newly dubbed Northern Faces, too. Mike Ryan has taken over the drum throne formerly occupied by Jared Bashant back in the ATWAB days.

Sunday’s show will mark the debut of the band’s new name, as well as their new drummer.

In support of their latest album, “Junk of the Heart,” Brit pop-rockers the Kooks headline at the Upstate Concert Hall in Clifton Park on Sunday (May 27) with Northern Faces and Louisiana band Royal Teeth opening the show at 7:30pm. Tix are $18 in advance; $20 at the door.
