Garage Bands series back at the APL

Party Boat band

Party Boat is one of the first bands up in the series.

The Albany Public Library is bringing its "Garage Bands" series back this summer. The shows feature local bands playing in the garage of the APL's main branch on Washington Ave.

The all-ages shows have an early start and end time (6-8 pm), so they can be a good event for people with young kids. And they're free.

The first show is this Friday, July 18. The full slate is after the jump.

The library's garage is behind the building, off Elk Street.

Blurbage via APL.

July 18: Party Boat - Pony in the Pancake - Linear North
The Garage Bands concert series kicks off with three hard-driving local bands. Party Boat has a signature beach punk sound and is based in Saratoga Springs. Pony in the Pancake is a four-piece psychedelic surf rock band with songs that revolve around the innocence of love and heartache. Linear North twists the blues into psychedelic slabs of sound that will leave you feeling like you're free-falling inside a locomotive through the center of the earth.

August 15: Big Frank and the Bargain Bingers - Blackcat Elliot
Big Frank and the Bargain Bingers is a broiling gumbo of amped up country, surf twang, and classic R&B. Blackcat Elliot is a trio that writes garage rock songs for the blue collar folk, the broken hearted, the walked on, the unlucky, and the unsung heroes.

September 19: Hammer Hawk - Hill Haints
Hammer Hawk is a "post-hamburger" rock trio that enjoys "pro-wrestling, hockey, and long walks on the beach." Hill Haints is a three-piece primal garage punk band that brings a sonic assault to every show.

Definitely needs a mural. Another spot that is begging for one is the Delaware Ave Price Chopper in Albany. The side along Elm St is a huge gray wall that takes up most of the block!
