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.

LIVE: Albany Tulip Festival @ Washington Park, 5/9/15 (Day One)

The Kooks

Albany’s Tulip Festival is typically the harbinger of spring, the first big volley into the vast array of outdoor music fests that populate the Nippertown concert calendar. But with temperatures in the mid-80s and the sun blazing down in Washington Park all afternoon for Day One of the fest, it felt more like a hot, mid-summer celebration.

And the Kooks delivered the goods with a bristling headlining set on the Parade Grounds’ main stage, drawing from a surprisingly wide variety of contemporary pop styles. Led by singer-guitarist Luke Pritchard, the British quartet (plus one guitarist-backing vocalist semi-hiding behind a stack of amplifiers), cracked open their 75-minute show with “Around Town,” the opening track of their latest album, “Listen.” They quickly won over the crowd – which was seemingly at least twice as large as it was for the two earlier bands – diving right into the call-and-response of “Bad Habit,” with the audience heartily shouting back at the band.

Halestorm

As you may recall, Halestorm was one of the bands that got the ax when Albany’s Washington Avenue Armory put a ban on all upcoming concerts after the melee at the Migos show back in March.

Fortunately, the promoters were able to re-locate the show to the Palace Theatre, and Lzzy Hale got a chance to strut her stuff with the boys after all.

but it was the Pretty Reckless – led by singer/actress Taylor Momsen – who made the most of the night. Yes, little “Jenny Humphrey” has gone from “Gossip Girl” to Gothy Girl, and while co-star Blake Lively got Ryan Reynolds, Momsen got one helluva band.

Led by frontman Travis Gray, Wild Adriatic hosted a wild CD release party for their new EP, Never Enough, last month at Vapor in Saratoga Springs. Sharing the stage for the Saratoga rock trio’s big bash was Vermont’s Gang of Thieves.

It was a double-barreled blast of rock ‘n’ roll fun, and it was free, too, thanks to the folks at WEQX-FM.
