From the Figgs to Blockhouses…


This weekend, the Figgs are stirring up a big buzz with their annual holiday homecoming shows. Tonight (December 20) they’ll be at Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany with Kitty Little opening the show, while on Saturday night (December 21), they’ll take the stage at Putnam Den in Saratoga Springs with openers the Charlie Watts Riots.

But that’s not all of the news bubbling up on the Figgs front…

Former Figgs guitarist, Guy Lyons is parted ways with the band back in the day in order to complete his college education and start a family, but he didn’t stop writing music. During the past year or so, he’s been recording some rockin’ good demos.

It took a while for Lyons to gather together just the right bandmates, but bassist Christopher Peifer (the Kowalskis, Heavy Creatures, Another Saturday Night) and drummer Bill Wolf (Wolfhaven, Adam Lakes, Jet Screamers) fit the bill perfectly.

The name of Lyons’ new rockin’ power-pop trio is Blockhouses, so keep your eyes and ears open for ’em…

    Thanks for the post! Capital Region folk might also know Chris Peifer, a SUNY Albany grad, as a former member of the Staziaks. The recording of a new release is underway – sounds killer. Stay tuned for an Albany show in early 2014.
