The Silos perform Cuba at The Hangar on the Hudson

Pioneering Alt-Country band, The Silos, Celebrate the 35th Anniversary of their seminal Album Cuba at the Hangar on the Hudson in Troy, NY. December 16th

The Silos, the still-kicking band Walter Salas-Humara co-founded in New York’s post-punk ’80s scene played alt-rock, alt-country, and Americana before any critics coined those terms. They were named Best New Artist in the Rolling Stone magazine critics’ poll in 1987 after the release of Cuba. The album has since been considered a stone-cold classic, being hugely influential in the so-called Americana or alternative country scene that followed in its wake. “Cuba is one of those albums that has become a kind of talisman among true music fans. Because you know that Cuba exists inside everyone, and this extraordinary album can take you there. It’s a journey filled with longing and loss, warmth and wonder.” (Anthony DeCurtis)

Join the Silo’s on Friday, December 16th, at The Hangar on the Hudson. Walter Salas-Humara and the band will be performing Cuba in its entirety, as well as songs from their self-titled album (AKA the bird album) and their new record Family. This will be something like a greatest hits show for Silos super fans, but any fan of Alt-country and Americana music will appreciate this performance.
