CD Release Party: Formula 5 @ the Hollow on Saturday
It’s been almost exactly one year since the release of Formula 5’s sophomore album Edging on Catastrope.
Now the Local 518 jam-band faves are slated to roll into the Hollow Bar + Kitchen in Albany on Saturday night (April 18) in celebration of their new album Live Five, Vol. 1. And to up the ante and make the evening extra special, the band will be joined by the Chronicles’ horn section of Bryan Brundidge and Jeff Nania.
Featuring eight songs – including covers of War’s “Low Rider” and Talking Heads’ “Uh-Oh, Love Comes to Town” – the album was recorded live in December at the Perfect Wife in Manchester, Vermont and in February at the Arch Street Tavern in Hartford, Connecticut.
Opening the show at the Hollow will be Boston-based progressive electrofunk/rock/jam quartet Strange Machines.
Showtime is 9:30pm, and tickets are $10 in advance; $12 at the door.
