“The first record that I ever bought with my own money – and not my mom’s money – was `Cosmic Slop’ by Funkadelic. Yeah, that must have been the one.”

Guitarslinger Vernon Reid cranks it up with his bandmates in Living Colour as they kick off the Capital Concert Series at the Empire State Plaza in Albany on Wednesday (June 4). The evening’s music kicks off at 5pm with Local 518 faves Mirk, followed by Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds before headliners Living Colour take the stage. Admission is free.
