Comments

Saw Sharon Van Etten at Club Helsinki a few weekends ago, she was absolutely fantastic. If you like her CDs, don't miss the the live version of her singles (wait, what's a CD?).

Hey folks, you can still get $40 pre-sale weeeknd passes, until Sept. 1. Last time RestFest was hands down the best show in Albany all year, and that was in the middle of Irene. And Brian Dewan is absolutely worth seeing live. The question is not do I go to RestFest, but do I wear that circa 1996 Dryer t-shirt.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
