Presented by local label Altercation Records, the Upstart Fest is currently the Northeast’s largest touring punk rock festival. This week the rolling rock 'n' roll circus once again crashes through our quadrant, taking the Chance in Poughkeepsie on October 1 and blowing the Fuzebox in Albany on October 2.

The lineup for each night is slightly different, so pay attention, punker! The Poughkeepsie bill (7pm, $12) features the Virus, Left Alone, the Svetlanas, the Sharp Lads, Two Fisted Law, New Red Scare, Entropy, and Hand to Match. In Albany (call or see website for times and ticket prices), it’s the Virus, Left Alone, the Svetlanas, the Sharp Lads, New Red Scare, Bourbon Scum, and Nine Votes Short.

Here's a taste of the Svetlanas kicking out the jams earlier this year at the Altercation Records Punk Rock BBQ in Austin, Texas:

The Upstart Fest visits the Chance in Poughkeepsie on October 1. For set times and ticket prices call (845) 471-1966 or visit www.thechancetheater.com. The tour hits the Fuzebox in Albany on October 2. For set times and ticket prices call (518) 703-8937 or visit www.facebook.com/Albany.FuzeBox.
