Rockin' on the River 2012

green island bridge roadwayThe Rockin' on the River concert series in Troy starts up its season Wednesday night. First up: celtic rock with Hair of the Dog (in the photo on the right).

The shows are in the parking lot just north of the Green Island Bridge (and just south of the strip that includes Ryan's Wake, Jose Malone's, and Brown's). They start at 5 pm. They're free.

Comments

It looks to me like Rockin' on the River would be the perfect venue for my band. We're called The Tribute Band Tribute Band.

In our paying tribute to tribute bands, we surpass them in tributality. Look on our tributes, ye tributers, and despair!

They should turn Maiden Lane into a stepped pedestrian street, like they have all over Europe. We don't need to reinvent the wheel, they do steep small streets pretty well across the pond, let's look for some precedents... Human scaled lighting is critical too, that goes for the whole city. And we don't need paint on the road, just signage perpendicular to the flow of traffic at the bridge entrance. I also echo the call for basic, ongoing maintenance to our current infrastructure. How about some weed removal in sidewalks, etc?
