St Albans MusicCity - Sat 6 March to Sun 14 March 2010

St Albans has a rich musical history and continues to foster a vibrant live music scene. St Albans MusicCity celebrates this by encompassing everything from swinging samba to psychedelic space rock; from classic blues and jazz to hardcore metal and alt-rock; from folk and acoustic balladeers to volume pumping DJs and even karaoke. MusicCity hopes to remind you of the variety and quality of local music venues and promoters who make St Albans such an amazing Music City all year round! You can join in too, learning didgeridoo, junk percussion or even step up to the mic yourself. Immerse yourself in the twilight leafy metropolis that is St Albans MusicCity!
