Albany seems to have a pretty darned active Punk/Metal scene that’s centered around a music store – Midway Music. I’ve never seen these bands and I’ve never been to Midway Music, but I’m damned curious. Google maps tells me Albany is a quick 18 miles south from Salem, and by the consistent shows I see going on down there, I’m thinking it’s worth the trip. Also, kudos for the amazing show posters they make for every show. Midway Music is located at 113 3rd Ave, Albany. 503-881-8432. $7.
