A band earns the title of WRRV Sessions alumni after they grace the stage at one of our Newburgh Brewing Company performances. The Racer, from right here in the Hudson Valley, earned that honor in the summer of 2016. You can see them headlining a show at The Loft this Saturday night in Poughkeepsie.

Their latest album Giants was released in the summer of 2016. My personal favorite off the album is 'Head Underwater'. They did an awesome job on the official music video, performing part of the song actually underwater.

The show is presented by Capital City Concerts and also features The Foxfires, Event Horizon, Little Motel, Benchmark and Mary The Station. Doors open at 6:30 and tickets are only 10 bucks for six great bands, the best value in town.

We had The Racer stop by the new WRRV performance space last week. Check out their three song set below.
