Alive at Five 2016 lineup

The Joy Formidable 2016

The Joy Formidable will be there June 16.

The city of Albany officially announced Monday that this summer's Alive at Five concert series will relocated to Tricentennial Park on Broadway. (As mentioned last week.) Mayor Kathy Sheehan explained that the one-year move was prompted by the construction on the pedestrian and bicycle upgrades at Corning Riverfront Park.

But the thing you probably want to know about is the lineup. And here it is...

Show start at 5 pm (thus the name). They're free.

Bloc Party? Joy Formidable? Sweet. How does Alive at Five score "bigger" bands than Tulip Fest or LarkFEST?

Bloc Party!!!!!

Correction on June 23rd Tameka Amar will be opening act for Tony Toni Tone'.

Editors: Fixed. Thank you.

As a New Orleans native, I'm PUMPED about Dr. John coming to town!

I wish you guys would bring back Bootsy Collins. Guy puts on one of the best shows you'll ever see.

Alive @ Five would be more enjoyable if more ethnic groups were chosen to perform.

The City should take a more proactive approach based on neighborhood consensus. A prescriptive design guideline with great clarity could save lots of graves for aspiring developers and other stakeholders. The City has to be clear upfront on conditions to be met such as overall allowed building volume, easy river connection, parking, pedestrian oriented ground floor usage and etc. It not seems reasonable to expect commercial developers to build something on their own initiative to both maximize ROI and please all city residents.
