Lark Fest 2009: Moby

moby

His real name is Richard Melville Hall.

Moby (yep, that Moby) will be headlining the musical slate for LarkFest this year. Also on the bill: Bell X1, Matt & Kim and Company of Thieves.

There's also a great group of local bands lined for the second stage: Matthew Loiacono, We Are Jeneric, Scientific Maps, Barrons in the Attic, Beware! The Other Head of Science and Sgt. Dunbar & the Hobo Banned.

LarkFest is September 19.

Holy S*. Apparently the stage will be expanded on Washington Avenue; considering the mob at Tom Morello last year (see video), I expect even more peeing discussions this time around :)

Must say, I am surprised and disappointed that LarkFest is the same day as Rosh Hashanah. I think it shows a real lack of sensitivity and poor planning on the part of the Lark BID.

Wow... Herman Melville's progeny has returned to Albany. Sweet.

@ Kate, that blows. Hasn't Lark Fest always been on the third Saturday of September though? Has it always been on Rosh Hashanah?

As a Pastafarian myself, I double-checked and September 19 is alllll good. Phew.

So excited for this! Moby AND all of my favorite local bands?!

I was already looking forward to Lark Fest, but this is just epic!

Sounds awesome. I've seen Moby once before - he put on a good show, especially for a electronic-type artist. Matt & Kim were really good at last year's SoCo festival in Altamont too.

So many good local bands... maybe I will be willing to brave the hordes of drunk suburbanites to see them.

@Kate..

I share in your disappointment. Oh well.

Lark fest is great but it is usually too crowded with idiots for me to feel that upset about missing it.

yeeessss moby. i think this is also the day that oktoberfest begins in germany, i wonder if wollf's has any plans

The stage hosting the B3nson Family Affair is going to have some extra fun on top of a musical lineup we are at the recording company are super excited about. Lets just say we have a few tricks up our collective sleeve.

Yay for Scientific Maps!

In addition to the 19th being Rosh Hashanah, it is also the date of another (very less celebrated) Holiday. International Talk Like A Pirate Day will take place this year on the 19th of September (as it does every year). Anyone celebrating either of these (or both or neither) observances will be more than welcome at the B3nson Family stage. Celebrating is something that we excel at.

@Matt

Thank You for bringing up Talk Like a Pirate Day. I hope somewhere there is a synagogue that will find a way to celebrate both wonderful holidays.

Wow, talk about reeling in a big fish....

Scheduling musical acts with the potential of attracting even more people to an already maxed out Lark Fest is actually pretty stupid and may border on irresponsible.

Moby might want to update his site under the Live and News sections. Otherwise, he might not even know he's coming.

Although I will miss LarkFest because of Rosh Hashanah, I'll be repping LarkFest and International Talk Like a Pirate Day: I plan to wear a Moby t-shirt to synagogue and sing all prayers in the manner of sea shanties.

Moby sucks. The Lark st bid are so out of touch is retarded. They don't even help any of the businesses on Lark Street anway- all this does is bring degenerates in from Rensselaer. Great. I know its not easy to find people to play free festivals but enough with the hacks. Lark fest has sucked for years. Tulip fest too. Get some new people running the show, please!

Lark was AMAZING this year- EQX did a great job of getting the bands that people deserve to know about like Company of Theives and Matt and Kim- who, in my mind- stole the show over Moby. :o)
