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.

Price Chopper has presented New York State’s annual Fourth of July Celebration at the Empire State Plaza in Albany every year since 1976, but this year there was one big change.

The steps of the NYS Museum are being overhauled this summer, which means that the stage was re-located to the north end of the plaza in front of the State Capitol Building. And because the museum steps have traditionally been utilized as seating for the celebration, it also meant that the crowd was packed into a considerably smaller viewing area than in years past.

But with musical headliners Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes – who had played inside the plaza at The Egg just a few months ago – yes, we were definitely havin’ a party, even before the fireworks filled the sky.

Led by Michael Farkas – who can conjure some powerhouse polyrhythms from his frottoir adorned with an array of noise-making devices from hotel desk bells to pots ‘n’ pans – the Wiyos nestled under The Egg on Albany’s Empire State Plaza for a free lunchtime concert earlier this month.

The Made in the Shade of The Egg concert series continues at 12noon on Wednesday (July 22) with a free concert by the up-and-coming San Francisco-based progressive bluegrass band Front Country, direct from their featured appearance at the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival in Oak Hill.

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.
