Phantogram added to Pearl Palooza 2012

phantogram 2011-11

You remember them.

WEQX has announced that Phantogram has been added to the lineup for the free Pearl Palooza festival in downtown Albany on September 22.

This will be Phantogram's first show in the Capital Region since they played at RPI in May 2011. Over the last year plus, Josh and Sarah have released an EP, toured all over, collaborated, and generally become more famous. They've been back in the area working on a new album. In November they're headed to Europe for a tour.

Also newly added to the lineup, on the second stage: Conehead Buddha. It's return of sorts for them, too. The ska band got back together this year and has played a few shows around the area.

Here's the previously announced lineup for Pearl Palooza, which is headlined by Matt & Kim.

Perhaps they read the comments on this blog? Because I'm pretty sure I read some comments on here recently about how they have never played a show in Albany once they hit the "Big Boi on the phone/Wayne Coyne lovin' us backstage" Big Time.

Or maybe its just a coincidence. Either way, its nice to have them playing the A-town (cue hometown moniker battle with Big Boi here).

I've been waiting on another hometown show, and I swear I was just daydreaming about how cool it'd be if they played at ESP...close enough!

Oh crap. Now I have to go. There's no way I can say no to Phantogram.

Does anyone know about what time Phantogram is supposed to come on?

Although I think the city is best served by having the state decommission and demolish this section of highway, if it is to be, then a couple things to consider. First, a big challenge is integrating the trail with Broadway along the exit ramp that feeds B'way from 787.The second is covering the cost of maintenance, not only of the linear park, but of the framework holding it aloft. ...
