So the Albany Capital Center is a concert venue now, too. A trio of shows that are coming up in the next month...

February 14: An Intimate night w/ Ashanti on Valentine's Day
It's "seated general admission event" with the R&B star. 7 pm -- $40 and up

February 23: Empire State Fest 2k18 featuring Jay Critch and Blak Ryno
Hip hop. 9 pm -- $25

February 25: Dropkick Murphys
A general admission floor show with the Celtic punk band. 6:30 pm -- $35

That's in addition to the usual convention center-type events such as conferences, expos, and group meetings.

Over at the Biz Review, Mike DeMasi looked at the 139 events the ACC hosted during 2017 -- 27 were events new to Albany County. (The convention center opened in March 2017.)

So comforting to know that thanks to my hard earned tax money the drop kick Murphy’s can now have their pick to play at the ACC or the Egg or the Palace or the troy music hall or the armory or the Times Union center or the Empire State plaza or the riverfront park or the cohoes concert hall or the UAlbany sefcu area or the on and on........no wonder why our taxes are so high and our cities are such dumps..........not sure anyone else around here sees the insanity of paying millions and millions of dollars to build a place that showcases roller derby and washed up pathetic rock bands with one notable song!
