Photos from Restoration Fest

Bennett sent us some photos from Rest Fest, which plowed ahead this weekend in the face of Hurricane Irene while practically every other event in the Capital Region was cancelled. Organizers, bands and the audience all seemed to have a great time, even though there was a mad rush to pump water out of the building on Sunday morning. But the music was great, and it was the one place to go to get out of the house (if you could get there).

Andrew has some excellent photos up too, looking forward to seeing more.

Related to Andrew's photos: did Deer Tick's John McCauley really launch a loogie in the air and catch it?

Also: Bryan Thomas has video from our set.

And Harith has a really on The Rev Recs blog.

To all who came out on Saturday, thank you.

To all who braved Sunday, thank you for being a part of something very special.

Great photos as always, Bennett! and great blog post by Harith!

Imagine if a mixed use development - apartments, townhouses, restaurants, offices, a park - were built on the Rensselaer riverfront, and people on both sides could go to work and go out in either Albany or Renss, just by walking to a gondola station? If people had reason to traverse the Hudson - in both directions - for a reason other than commuting or getting to/from the train station, a gondola could be an awesome (and financially self-sustaining) idea, that also cuts down on the need for parking. ...
