FRONT BIZ: Open for Take-Out Virtual Concert Series
November 16 at 8:00 pm - November 17 at 9:00 pm
The Linda WAMC’s Performing Arts Studio presents The Open For Take-Out Virtual Concert Series Featuring Front Biz.
Front Biz is an Albany/Troy-based quartet forging ecstatic sounds at the crossroads of rock, funk, and psychedelia. The band formed around Erik Pravel’s electronic drum kit in 2016 to play glitched mashups of Charles Mingus and Black Sabbath in the basement of a Presbyterian church. The project soon evolved into a double-barrel guitar workout fronted by Raurri Jennings, the holographic result of Rick Moranis singing Prince karaoke, and Peter Lavery, the world’s fattest man. Josh Potter plays himself, also the bass. Front Biz has performed at a number of regional events, including Beatshot, LarkFest, Tulip Fest, Pearlpalooza, Troy River Fest, and Superdark, shared stages with White Denim, Naked Giants, Rubblebucket, K. Flay, and won a battle of the bands held at a bowling alley in the mall.
Their debut, Lunch Money, was released in 2019 on Five Kill Records.
The impacts of COVID-19 have been dire for working musicians and the music industry as a whole. The goal of this series is to help restart the local music economy by bringing a wide array of eclectic and diverse, local and regional musicians back to the stage in a safe environment and to provide fans with a professionally produced concert delivered directly to their homes via YouTube stream. Similar to some of our in-person concerts, the virtual concerts are ticketed events and just like all concerts at The Linda, the productions will be of the highest quality visibly and audibly.
-The virtual concerts take place every Monday night at 8 pm.
