If you’re going to be in Saratoga for Farm Aid on Saturday, swing by Putnam Den afterwards for the official post-show with The Infamous Stringdusters. Following what is going to be an amazing day of music, they will take the stage with their take on bluegrass for everyone who has not had their fill yet. If you didn’t get tickets to Farm Aid itself, Putnam Den will also be hosting a viewing party starting at 5PM until the show is over for free. Once the show is over doors will be open for the 11PM show for those who want to see The Infamous Stringdusters and tickets for that are available now here. Get them early as this will almost certainly sell-out. This is a special treat for the area to have along with Farm Aid and The Stringdusters have said the audience should be ready for “a performance, not a show.”
Fan and critical favorites The Infamous Stringdusters are considered as the premier live act amongst the current crop of newgrass (or alternative bluegrass) bands. Their shows offer a complex, distinctive, and groove-friendly sound on top of a traditional bluegrass foundation. Comparisons range all over the musical map, from Earl Scruggs Revue to Nickel Creek to Old And In The Way to Leftover Salmon to too-common “if Phish played bluegrass” quotes.
Bonus! This show will be sponsored by Brooklyn Brewery!
