50 years of Music from Big Pink at the Falcon

The BAND Band – our region’s long-running tribute to our region’s premier rock ”n’ roll icons – celebrates the 50th anniversary of Music from Big Pink, the Band’s debut album, at the Falcon on Friday, July 20 at 8 p.m. Naturally, the BAND Band will be focusing on Big Pink material, and not just its smattering of timeless hits: “The Weight,” “Chest Fever,” “I Shall Be Released.” The set will delve deep into the album tracks and beyond.

There is never a cover charge at the Falcon, but direct-to-performer donation is simply what keeps this incredible, ever-expanding venue rolling. The Falcon is located at 1348 Route 9W in Marlboro. For more information, visit www.liveatthefalcon.com.
