The Return of the Exit Dome!

It all started back on Friday, January 30, 2009 when Greater Nippertown musicians Bryan Thomas, Matthew Loiacono, Railbird, 28N, Ramblin Jug Stompers and Sgt. Dunbar & the Hobo Banned donated their time and talent for a concert to benefit public rock & roots radio station WEXT-FM, commonly referred to as “The Exit.” The benefit was held at the radio station’s sister television studio, WMHT-TV, in North Greenbush. The studio was unofficially re-named the Exit Dome for the event, and the name stuck.
Exit Dome II was held later that same year with the re-united Blotto headlining. The fundraising concert was held again in February, 2010 and returned again and again in January of 2011 and 2012.
Then the Exit Dome was no more… until now.
Yes, the WMHT-TV studio will once again be transformed into the Exit Dome on Friday, September 7. Dubbed Exit Dome 11 in honor of the radio station’s 11th birthday, the one-night fest will feature Troy’s own international troubadour Sean Rowe and an acoustic performance by Super 400, both of whom performed at Exit Dome II.
The concert kicks off at 7pm with main stage performances by Darling Valley, Sorrow Estate and Motorbike. During the band-to-band change-overs Steve Candlen and newcomer Taylor Wing will entertain in the lobby.
Tickets for Exit Dome 11 are now available for a donation of $20 or more to the station. GO HERE to donate…
