Welcome back grilling season with Built4BBQ! We’ve got a pair of big shows in the works, and we hope you’ll join us for the party.
First up, B4BBQ’s prodigal punk band The Slaughterhouse Chorus returns for their first local show in nearly a year on March 24 at the Low Beat! Joining our beloved twang-punks and fresh off the release of a fantastic new LP, Syracuse dudes Bridge Under Fire are back in town and ready to make you feel things with their patented brand of post-hardcore. Featuring faces you might recognize from the dearly departed Bad Friends, Albany’s best new band The Spirit of Violence kicks things off. They’ve retained that Bad Friends bad-assery but traded the powerviolence for righteous rock and roll riffing we can’t get enough of. Earplugs might be a good idea for this one. Facebook event here.
We flip it to quieter side of things for a one-man-band bonanza at Pauly’s Hotel on March 31, featuring our Built4BBQ’s banjo-bashing country-blues troubadour Henry’s Rifle! Here’s your first chance to pick up a copy of HR’s brand new “Arkansas” EP, and you’re not gonna want to pass it up. As if that wasn’t enough to drag you off your couch, we’re really stoked to host the Albany debut of Boston’s Coffin Salesman, a brand new solo folk-punk project from Aria Rad of The Radicals/Live Nude Girls/Jason Bennett & The Resistance/etc fame. Albany alt-folk mastermind County Mike and After the Fall frontman Mike Moak round things out with more killer songs straight from the heart. Go on and RSVP.
Mark your calendars, friends. We’ll see you soon.
