…the beloved Albany stage was no more by Sunday afternoon — at least the 17 New Scotland Avenue incarnation. After a long and tiring career, it is destined for some much needed retirement on a man-cave wall. There’s a new stage in town.

More photos from the final show, featuring local favorites Sgt. Dunbar and the Hobo Banned and The Parlor following by an epic 80’s night DJ’ed by Hans. Drink specials all night brought to you by Albany Med. —

The following day was a somber gathering of employees and friends. Leftover liquor drove to Central Ave, while a bathroom stall door went to an adoring fan. The tap system will find a new home with the gang from Lucas Confectionery in Troy. A wrecking ball will claim the rest.
