A Rockin’ Dance Party to benefit The Arts Center
Featuring: The Tichy Boys, vintage fashion show with date auction, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que


Troy, NY (04/12/2012) – This April 21st is “River Street Riot,” a night that promises to be one of the Capital Region’s biggest rockabilly dance parties ever.

All proceeds will benefit The Arts Center of the Capital Region.

According to Arts Center Interim President Deborah Onslow, “River Street Riot is only two years old but has already established itself as one of the most fun and creative events in Troy. Great music and dancing with plenty of food and drinks – all mixed with rockabilly costumes and vintage decorations.   The event is aptly named. It really is a riot!”

Festivities will begin at 6PM on April 21st at The Arts Center, 265 River Street in downtown Troy.

The evening will feature live music by The Tichy Boys, consisting of John Tichy, a founding member of the legendary Commander Cody and the Lost Planet Airmen, and his son Graham, a highly respected local musician, along with others.


New at this year’s Riot is a vintage fashion show, with models outfitted by Twilight Vintage Fashion in Troy, NY. The models will be auctioned off in a live date auction following the fashion show.


Tickets are $15 in Advance and $20 at the door. To purchase tickets in advance, visit www.artscenteronline.org or call 518-273-0552.


The food concession at the Riot will be provided by Dinosaur Bar-B-Que and Sticky Finger Gourmet Apples.
