A Few Weekend Things

Welcome to the weekend! Because your humble Albablogger took an actual day off for the fourth of July, your roundup of events happening this weekend in the city of Albany will only cover Saturday and Sunday in detail. Thanks to,, and all of the folks out there who actually bother posting their events on their websites. Posting of events depends on my whims: recurring events may or may not be posted depending on how much other stuff is going on. Anything already sold out by noon on Friday won't be posted. Items in bold are taking place over multiple days or locations. *Asterisks* indicate an Albablog-recommended event. Happy weekend!
