Last night, the Campus Center Ballroom at UAlbany, accomadated students looking to break up their academic week nicely, with the treat of some live music from local musicians and city folk alike. WCDB got it right on point that a concert was a more solid, positive form of distraction from prepping for next week’s final exams than getting worked up over whether or not the fountains will be turned on or other various areas of focus these days on campus. BTW, Shoenice won.
I personally have realized the past few shows that, well, these things start on time and for some reason I always assume they never do. Therefore I regret to report that this is the second time in a row that I’ve attended where I’ve missed a band that I did not want to miss. Sgt Dunbar and the Hobo Banned opened up this show, after being out on the road touring extensively for a month or so. They trekked across country playing shows all over the west coast and central US, as well as playing as a part of this year’s SXSW festival. The band is no doubt up to good things, and you can be sure to catch them at this year’s Tulip Fest on Sunday, May 8th.
