Albany’s Alive At 5 Concerts Opening Up To 100% Capacity
After initially planning to go virtual this year for limited fans, Albany's annual concert series has shifted gears and will go to full capacity.
One of our favorite Albany traditions is back this summer, exactly how the live music gods intended it to be: full of live music fans! After initially planning a 'virtual' re-recorded Alive at Five, it was announced today the weekly concert series will now operate at full capacity for in-person fans, according to a CBS 6 story. Most of the concerts will still be recorded to air as part of the online virtual series.
Unfortunately for Capital Region Country music fans, there are no Country shows in this year's lineup. Nonetheless, there is still a great month of music ahead that will kick off this Wednesday, June 30th with a Reggae night featuring The Meditations and Mixed Roots. The weekly Wednesday night shows will run through July 28th, culminating with a Classic Rock night starring one of your favorite 80's hair bands, Warrant. Other shows will include a Funk night and a Folk/Pop night. All of the shows will be held at Jennings Landing from 5 to 8 p.m. and admission is free! You can see the full lineup of artists, plus a schedule when the virtual events can be viewed, visit the Albany Office of Cultural Affairs website.
Alive at 5 is one of our longest-running and honestly one of the premier concert series we have in the region. The acts are always great. the location is stunning, and well, the price is right. It's great to have another slice of our normal lives back this summer!
