Alive at Five on Thursday, July 25 in Albany
ALBANY — The Capital City was treated to its second triple-bill of free outdoor music at Alive at Five, on Thursday, July 25, at Jennings Landing.
It was an evening featuring bands with familial and academic ties as WEQX presented co-headling acts Wild Adriatic and Jocelyn and Chris Arndt, and opening act Hasty Page.
Wild Adriatic promised to garner a large crowd to Jennings Landing when Albany first announced the lineup for the summer concert series. The jam band out of Queensbury has a large regional following. The quartet took one more step in front of a larger audience just a few days before. It opened for two nights before Lynyrd Skynyrd, Marshall Tucker Band and 38 Special at Xfinity Center and at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts.
The sister-brother act of Jocelyn and Chris Arndt released its fifth album, “The Fun in the Fight,” in February. It’s the follow-up to “Go” which produced the band’s first Billboard chart single “Red Stops Traffic.” The 2017 hit primed radio stations for this album which has now breached Billboard’s AAA chart twice as of this week.
Hasty Page, enjoying a busy summer this season, performed in front of a crowd for the third time in one week. The trio, also out of Queensbury, had performed at Troy’s Rockin’ on the River just the night before.
