FREE: Alive at Five Announces More Concerts
Albany’s Alive at Five concert series – which will be held at 5pm on Thursdays at Jennings Landing in the Corning Preserve – continues to dole out band announcements piecemeal for the 2018 summer season. And, of course, the concerts are all FREE.
Here are today’s big reveals:
ALBERT HAMMOND JR.
Thursday, June 14
Best known as the guitarist for The Strokes, Albert Hammond, Jr.’s solo career took his music in more eclectic, and more personal, directions. His fourth solo album, Francis Trouble, available now, was created as an homage to the stillborn death of his twin brother.
Thursday, August 2
Since forming in 2012, Sir Sly have forged their singular sound by drawing upon each member’s long-honed musical talents: Landon Jacobs’ introspective yet infinitely searching lyricism, Jason Suwito’s in-studio ingenuity and Hayden Coplen’s sophisticated musicianship and sense of songcraft.
In addition, Mixed Roots have been announced as the opening act for veteran reggae band Third World on Thursday, July 19.
