This year’s Rosendale Rocks the River – the People’s Republic’s music festival – has the street to itself, as the Big One is taking the season off for reasons infrastructural. RRR has always been a very pleasant day in a pleasant town, morphing seamlessly into the raging night.
This year, seven local bands play sets in the city-standard 45-minute range. It is, per usual, an eclectic lineup, featuring the eccentric and powerful Horned Angels, Carole White, the accomplished singer/songwriter Jude Roberts, the Red Goat Vandals, Root Brew, New Paltz’s skagrass party kings Los Thujones, the Hektor Bee & Profit 333 Duo and M’Bolla.
It all goes down from 2 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, June 25 at 375 Main Street in Rosendale. Admission costs $10. For more information, visit https://rosendalerockstheriver.wordpress.com.
