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!
