Mark Turley of Syracuse indie label LRS Records dropped me a line about a cool event taking place this Saturday … Which happens to be the same day of the Hoo-hah that is the annual downtown Syracuse St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
“We recently partnered with this new building downtown called The Cosmopolitan (1153 West Fayette St.) … There is a new brewery called Beard Stout Brewery that is opening on the first floor with its new tap-room,” Turley writes. “LRS is providing 12-hours of music from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. for the event in their big, open first-floor performance space.
“A bunch of LRS bands as well as other local and regional bands will be playing. There will also be a food truck inside (Shattuck’s Paddy Wagon).
“LRS will be doing raffles and giveaways and stuff. We really want this space to take off as a cool all-ages spot in the city where people can attend shows, get a drink at the tap room, and frequent the other local businesses that are opening in the building in the near future.”
Sounds like a hot spot in the making.
Performing will be Ohne-ká and the Burning River, The Stacy White Suite, The Amazing Shakes, Bridge Under Fire, Judge Gazza, Shore Acres Drive, Dave Mallon, Stonelord Brothers, The Cuddlefish, Mattydale Music Collective, All Poets & Heroes, Steve Tarnow and acts to be announced. Admission to the all-ages show is $10.
Would you be more interested in a St. Patrick’s Day Parade or a festival inside a building, and why? Would you be most drawn for the music, indoor food truck or craft beer tap-room, and why? How do you usually celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?
