Sharon Van Etten at Rest Fest

By Patrick Dodson

This weekend was the Restoration Festival at the historic St. Joseph’s Church in the Ten Broeck neighborhood of Albany. The whole weekend was jam packed with music and art, with headliners including the Kamikazee Hearts, Sharon Van Etten, Willy Mason, and Mount Eerie. Local bands included The Parlor, Sgt. Dunbar and the Hobo Banned, Barons in the Attic, and many more. We were there on Saturday night to catch Sharon Van Etten‘s much anticipated return to the Cap Region. More pics after the jump:
