Join us for The Figgs: Forever, a celebration of the Capital Region’s biggest rock & roll export of the past twenty five years. Recorded during The Figgs‘ recent west coast tour, The Figgs visited Josh Norek in sunny California for a one hour radio special. In this WEXT exclusive program, The Figgs take us through their musical history, including 12 albums and career milestones including serving as the backing band for Graham Parker, performing on the Jon Stewart Show, and landing music in a Lexus commercial. Not bad for a couple of lads from Saratoga!
With the release of their new album, “Other Planes of Here,” we thought it was about time to honor the Local 518’s rock and roll heroes with their own radio program. It’s time for The Figgs: Forever. Read on for more on this special excursion into all things Figgs.
