Concert brings close to a thousand to Albany

Albany- Three bands brought quite a crowd into downtown Albany. The line stretched around the corner at the State Theater.

New rock 97.3 hosted Monroe Brown, Crossfade, and Strata. The March Music Madness concert was the first show at the new State Theater that sold out well in advance.

"We actually sold out yesterday. It was a build up to it, and at the last minute people were worried about not getting in the building because there's only so many people we can fit, 850, and it worked out great," said Double Down, a D.J. for 97.3.

Local band, Monroe Brown, kicked off Wednesday's show to a packed house of music lovers.
