Comments

This is the reason I don't go to any of these. There are tons of great acts right here in the Capital Region and you bring in all these other acts. Thanks, I'll go support local music instead.

Locals will be announced in a few weeks Herbert!

The headliners help bring in people that might not necessarily know about our wonderful local artists. Ultimately growing their fan base.

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.

Hopefully these projects will all be built. It's crazy how anti-development and NIMBYist some people are around here, and then they wonder why so many people leave. It's fine if they build a house or move in, but then they want to close the door to everyone else.
