Albany’s Alive at Five Announces First Concert

The City of Albany’s free Alive at Five concert series returns to Jennings Landings (formerly known as Riverfront Park, remember?) again this summer, kicking things off with a real doozy of s show at 5pm on Thursday, June 11 – the eclectic jazz trio the Bad Plus joined by super saxman Joshua Redman. Opening the show will be the Local 518’s homegrown jazz-funk-hip-hop combo the Chronicles.

How’s that for a great way to kick off your summer of free concerts?

As usual, in case of bad weather, the concert will be moved to the rain location at the Corning Preserve Boatlaunch underneath the I-787 overpass.

The full line-up of concerts for the Alive at Five series – which takes place at 5pm on Thursdays from June 11-August 8 – will be announced next month. But if the initial teaser announcement is any indication, it’s looking like a mighty fine summer of music…
