Moby is coming to LarkFest.
The techno-pop experimentalist heads up the musical acts on WEQX’s main stages for this year’s free festival, which takes place Saturday, Sept. 19.
Best known for hits such as “Porcelain,” “We Are All Made of Stars” and “Southside,” a duet with No Doubt leader Gwen Stefani, Moby first made a name for himself in the hardcore punk scene of the 1980s, eventually moving to DJing. His music has touched upon everything from electronica to alternative rock in the past two decades, with this year’s “Wait For Me” focusing on instrumentals.
The other national headliners for LarkFest include Irish band Bell X1, the Brooklyn-based duo Matt & Kim, and the Chigago-based trio Company of Thieves.
Call the Lark Street Business Improvement District at 434-3861 for more information, or visit www.larkstreet.org.
Local openers featured on EQX-posure include Queer for AstroBoy, Lunic, The Burnham Brothers and Ten Year Vamp.
Along with the two main stages, acts for the Townsend Park Stage, organized by The Albany Barn, and the Hometown Stage were also announced today. The Townsend Park Stage will feature performances from Barrons in the Attic, Matthew Loiacono, We Are Jeneric, Scientific Maps, Beware! The Other Head of Science, and Sgt. Dunbar and the Hobo Banned.
The Hometown Stage features presenter MotherJudge, Albany Poets, Rick Whispers, Discard Avant Garb, Marcus Ruggerio and The Ameros.
