The Palace Theatre, the City of Albany and Mirth Films are pleased to

announce the next edition of The Palace Sessions featuring

Eastbound Jesus – Wednesday, August 19 at 7 p.m.

Eastbound Jesus is a six piece acoustic/electric band from the small town of Greenwich, NY.

They formed in the fall of 2010 in an old barn on the outskirts of their hometown and huddled

around a hot wood-stove, they began writing music right away. Adam Brockway, Carl and Luke

Anderson, Dave Wright, Dylan Robinson and Zack Infante take inspiration from all over the

music spectrum to form a style all their own. Over a tight rhythm section, the group blends

clever lyrics, unique vocal harmonies, solid strumming and picking, and rounds out their sound

with lead instrumentation that is nothing short of on-point.

The Palace Sessions is a monthly live music series featuring some of our favorite regional acts

performing in unique spaces within the historic performing arts center. The series kicked off on

July 15 with a live performance by Wurliday – currently available to watch HERE.

Mark your calendars for these special live streaming concerts on August 19, September 16 &

October 21. Performances will stream live on the Palace Theatre’s YouTube Page beginning at

7:00 pm. Additional performers will be announced.

“We are thrilled to be able to welcome live music back to the hallowed halls of the Palace

Theatre,” noted Billy Piskutz, Executive Director of the Palace Performing Arts Center. “This

historic building exists to entertain and create memories and after a nearly four-month absence

due to COVID-19, it is a thrill to know that it will again. We hope that our patrons will enjoy

these performances as much as we do!”

“Summer in Albany is synonymous with music and entertainment and it is wonderful to have the

Palace Theater hosting local musicians albeit in a different way this year,” said Albany Mayor

Kathy Sheehan. “I applaud the ingenuity of the Palace Theater, the Office of Cultural Affairs,

and Mirth Films in bringing entertainment to people during COVID-19. I continue to be

impressed with how our community has risen to the challenge of keeping the arts alive during

this time and look forward to tuning in to the Palace Sessions.”

During the stream, donations can be made to benefit the Palace Performing Arts Center,

Inc. – the 501(c)3 non-profit organization that owns and operates the historic Palace

Theatre. Donations can be made HERE or directly through the Palace Theatre’s Text To

Give program, by texting Palace2020 to 44321.
