moe. Jams in Albany This Weekend | Music | Hudson Valley | Chronogram Magazine
Buffalo-born band moe. is edging up on their 30th year and continue to rule the jam band circuit, delighting patchouli-pickled throngs everywhere with their funky, freewheeling, danceable rock. This weekend, though, the quintet keeps the party upstate with a two-night run at Albany’s Palace Theater.

Originally called Five Guys Named Moe, the group came together at the University of Buffalo in 1990 and got their formidable chops together there by playing any and every campus party that would have them. After finding a welcome at New York club Wetlands, they built a live that attracted the attention of Sony/550 Music, which released three albums by the band. After a return to their own label, Fatboy, moe. signed with Americana label Sugar Hill, the home of their last two studio albums, What Happened to the La Las (2012) and No Guts, No Glory (2014).

Here, the outfit jams out on “Silver Sun” in 2016:

moe. will perform at the Palace Theater in Albany, New York, on February 23 at 7:30pm and 24 at 8pm. Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 day of show (or both shows for $65). For more information, call (518) 465-4663 or visit
