    1995: Alejandro Escovedo, Hamell On Trial, Grainbelt @ Valentine’s Music Hall, Albany–one of the all-time best nights of music; seeing Hamell and Escovedo was life-changing. Coal Palace Kings was the opener as I recall. The power went out during Escovedo’s set, so he took the band to the pool room and played an unreal acoustic set and virtually everyone sat on the floor.

    2012: Green River Festival that year was one for the ages. Still the best outdoor music event every summer!

    7/14/2000 – The infamous Up In Smoke tour touched down in Albany. Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Xzibit, Tha Dogg Pound, Ice Cube, WC, and many many more. It was epic.
