Hozier's trip to The Palace in Albany was a huge success. What a fantastic show. Our very own Steve Richards caught up with him before the show to talk about his new album. He even gave us some behind the scenes info on how his mom's art played a role.

It's a great start to the year's alternative concerts in the Capital Region. Hozier at the Palace, Weezer at the Times Union center, and it is still only the first half of March. We're going to be out and about all spring and summer to get you behind the scenes looks into the biggest Capital Region alt concerts of the year. Stay up to date on all the latest with the ALT 105.7 app, including contests and exclusive content.
