The Restoration Festival

restoration festival posterThe Capital Region has a lot of great local bands and musicians -- and there's a prime opportunity to check out a bunch of them coming up at the end of August.

The Restoration Festival will feature more than 15 great acts over two days at St. Joseph's in Albany. From the festival blurb:

The current lineup includes [in no particular order] Matthew Carefully and Swamp Baby [of Collar City Records], Aficionado [of No Sleep Records] Alta Mira [of Indian Ledge Records] the Mathematicians, Railbird, RESTYS, El Duke, The Red Lions, Grainbelt, Que Caro, and Barons In The Attic, Scientific Maps, We Are Jeneric, Beware! The Other Head of Science and Sgt. Dunbar & the Hobo Banned [of B3nson Records].
Musical and Visual interludes as well as after party will be exploded and controlled by Goodship. All of which are contributing equally to making this celebration a success.

It's like an all-star game of local music. We hear there's more to come -- you can stay updated by following the festival on Twitter and Facebook.

The Rest Fest will August 28 and 29. Early bird tickets are just $15 (includes both days) and $10 (includes one day). Twenty-five percent of the proceeds will go towards St. Joseph's restoration fund.

... Much of what makes the area special is the suburban and rural experience and public natural resources. If that stuff isn't really your thing, you're not an asshole, you just have personal tastes that don't mesh well with the region. That said, you do have to put in effort to like this area. It doesn't come to you; for better or worse, you have to seek it out. And that's not for everyone either. ...
