B3nson Family Funsgiving

by Metroland Staff on November 15, 2012


Can it really be that five whole years have passed since the first-annual B3nson Family Funsgiving?! Imagine how long your Funsgiving beard would be if you had been growing it all this time. Surely long enough to win a prize in the Rip Van Winkle category during the festivities. Just as B3nson Records has become an Albany institution, Funsgiving has become a standard part of our calendar year and, given the way the collective dissolves and reconstitutes new bands (peep their cool family-tree poster graphic), there’s always a new reason to celebrate. This year’s lineup includes Bear Grass, Boston Celtics, the Bum Ditties, Goldtooth, the Parlor and the B3nson Family Band, covering songs by other B3nson bands. A portion of the proceedes benefit the Red Cross. (Nov. 16, 8 PM, $10, 17 New Scotland Ave., Albany, 432-6572)
