Thursday, September 11th, the rock will invade Albany at The Low Beat. From the ashes of Valentines, this new venue over on Central Avenue has risen, and has already brought some great live acts to the area. This night aims to be no different, as some locals and some out of town bands will help send off The End Men on their two week tour of america.
Henry’s Rifle, straight out of Albany, will bring his one man, dirty rocking banjo music to the stage. Fresh of of the Muddy Roots festival in Tennessee, and poised to drop his brand new album, “Barroom Weather” very soon, his rackus, infectious sounds will surely brighten your day and get you ready for the night.
Sun Voyager, out of Orange County New York, will be slinging psychedelic garage rock licks at the audience in full helpings. Usually hitting the Brooklyn scene, it will be a treat to see them in Albany, alongside such luminaries of local rock and roll. They are part of King Pizza Records, and definitely check out their Bandcamp if you haven’t already.
Charmboy, another Albany based band, are a product of the no nonsense rock and roll of the 70’s and they are proud to produce guitar laden rock without gimmick or pretense. Tight riffs and tasty jams will feed the hole in your soul where rock and roll lives. They will be sure to do what they do best; melt faces and hearts alike with their pure inspiring music.
The End Men, from Brooklyn New York, definitely call Albany their home away from home at this point. Joining up with the fine collective of musical folks at Built4BBQ, they have made the pilgrimage upstate a number of times to great crowd response. The two piece, though rumoured to be rounded out by a mysterious saxaphone player for this tour, bring an incredibly huge sound with them wherever they set up shop. They have been tearing up stages in America as well as Europe for over four years now, and they show no signs of taking a break. Each time they come to this area they try out new material, engage the crowd on and off the stage, and make for an immersive experience full of their own brand of psycho dirty blues laden rock and roll.
Show starts at 8PM at The Low Beat, for only 5 dollars. Check out the Facebook event.
