Summer Comes Early to Plattsburgh

Summer usually comes much later up North, but don’t you tell that to the people of Plattsburgh, NY. This weekend, you won’t be able to swing a dead cat without hitting a live music performance.

Plattsburgh First Weekends starts off the monolithic musical weekend Friday, at 2 pm from Trinity Park.  Street performances and other fun activities are promised, while Mambo Combo is set to perform on City Hall Pl. at 5 pm.

Then, at 7 pm, the ROTA Gallery will host several acts consisting of The Fox & The Feather, Allison Lutz, Theresa Hartford and TPZ.

But, wait, if you really want to take this crazy train you may be forced to a decision between seeing Conehead Buddha at Olive Ridley’s at 9 pm, or Mister F at the Monopole at 10 pm.

Mister F takes to the stage back in January.

Round Two of musical events gives plenty of time for recuperation, as the first show does not start until 7 pm.  Here, the ROTA Gallery will again play host to several acts – Cave Needles, Vincent & The Virgins, Jesus & The Psychonauts, and Judee Mango.

If you choose to part ways from the Gallery, it may be because you need a cup of coffee.  The Koffee Kat will have Justin Vancour on their intimate stage setting by 8 pm.

And, by 9 pm, the Monopole will play host to Albany jam band Groovestick.
