LIVE: LarkFest @ Albany’s Lark Street, 9/20/14

When the first LarkFest took over Albany’s Lark Street back in 1981, the concept was two-fold – showcase the considerable Local 518 musical talent and bring folks down to shop, eat and drink at Lark Street businesses. Heck, Lark Street wasn’t even closed to to traffic that first year.

Over the course of more than three decades, LarkFest grew to unmanageable proportions, and the bands came not from the neighborhood or even the city. Instead there were regional and then national bands grabbing the stages at Albany’s annual end-of-summer/back-to-school celebration.

It took a while, but this year’s LarkFest party marked the return of the original musical concept – an all-local line-up of bands. And it was a solid homegrown line-up, too – eight bands on two stages spanning a pretty fair range of musical genres with the Graham Tichy Trio, the Chris Dukes Band, the Chronicles, Conehead Buddha, Holly & Evan, Wild Adriatic, Titanics and Mirk.

Welcome back – Live. Local. LarkFest…

Sometimes you’ll find her behind the bar at the Low Beat serving up cold brews. And sometimes Meg Duffy steps out from behind the bar, grabs her guitar, steps onto the no-pepper stage to serve up some mesmerizing music with her band, Hand Habits. That was the case one night last month when Hand Habits topped a whopping four-band bill, that also featured Free Cake for Every Creature, Bellows and Eskimeaux.

Albany’s fall street festival season kicked off last month with PearlPalooza, but unfortunately, the weather didn’t cooperate.

The chilly, rainy Saturday left fans waterlogged at the fifth annual PearlPalooza, which took place on Saturday, September 13 on downtown Albany’s North Pearl Street. And while other fests taking place that day scurried to the cover of their rainsite (like the Jazz at the Lake, which relocated to Lake George High School), there was no dry place for PearlPalooza to go. The fans got soggy, and the bands were singing in the rain.
