Restoration Funstival in Albany soon

The folks at WEXT are getting pretty psyched to be a big part of the Restoration Funstival that’s happening at the end of August. A two day music festival in Albany! It’s happening from noon to 10pm at St. Joseph’s Church on Saturday, August 28 and Sunday, August 29.

The poster for the event is pretty cool looking and the musical lineup is gigantic. Here are a random few: Matthew Carefully, Aficionado, the Mathematicians, Railbird, RESTYS, The Red Lions, Grainbelt, Scientific Maps, Beware! The Other Head of Science and Sgt. Dunbar & the Hobo Banned.

There are lots of great things about this Funstival but this is my favorite:  25% of all proceeds will go to the St. Joseph’s Restoration fund to support their $300,000 matched grant from the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation. I hear that the inside of St. Joseph’s is very cool, a good place to let a mind wander during a music set.

Right now, tickets are on sale online for the early bird price of $10.00 per day and $15.00 for the whole weekend at www.restfest.net. (I love that there’s an early bird feature.)
