Southside Johnny at Athens, NY, Riverside Park Aug. 18

Asbury Jukes to play upstate, outdoors, and free

My hometown of Athens, NY, will again host Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes for a free concert Friday, August 18, at the Athens Riverfront Park, a stones’ throw from the Hudson, NY, train station (if you are an Olympic shotputter). Regular people take the ferry ($12 round trip).

I’m looking forward to seeing one of the best, hardest-working bands playing today, out there under the stars with the historic Hudson River amplifying the sounds. With Jeff Kazee at the keyboards and John Conte on bass, who can resist “I Don’t Want to Go Home” or  “Love on the Wrong Side of Town” en plein air? It would take “Hearts of Stone” to pass on these tunes.

About two weeks to Labor Day, folksget out there now. Don’t miss the boat.
