Real Good for Free: Pearl Street Live

Looking for something to do after Albany’s weekly Thursday night Alive @ 5 concerts? Well, you don’t have to look far. Just walk a block up the hill from Riverfront Park and check out the free Pearl Street Live series.

Blocking off North Pearl Street to traffic from Pine to Columbia streets, it’s a weekly block party at 8pm each Thursday:

June 4: The Schmooze
June 11: The Brian Tice Band
June 18: The Refrigerators
June 25: The New York Players
July 2: The Electric City Horns
July 9: Ten Year Vamp
July 16: Vivid
July 23: Nuts in a Blender
July 30: Philip the Meatbox
August 6: The Audiostars
August 13: Moxie

UPDATE: Be aware that the City of Albany has announced a crackdown on alcohol at the Alive At Five concert series, sparked by increased DWI arrests and widespread underage drinking during previous city-sponsored events. The common council didn’t have the votes to ban alcohol completely, but new rules will be in place and undercover police will be in the crowd.

Have fun but please be careful out there.
