Alive at 5 Line-Up Announced

Adding to recent line-up announcements to annual Albany events such as Tulip Fest (not that good) and Art on Lark (actually good) is this year’s Alive at 5 schedule.

This free summer concert series hosts notoriously humorous and/or so-bad-its-good acts and didn’t disappoint this year. Obvious highlight this year is Smash Mouth.
