We are looking to compile a list of links to bands/artists from the Local 518. If you are one, please post your link here. We will compile and post with others as we grow our Local 518 project.
Does your venue feature Local 518 musicians? Post your link, too.
Keep rockin’, Local 518!

We at EXT are deeply saddened by the fire at Tess’ Lark Tavern. Our thoughts are with you, Tess – and everyone who works there and relies so heavily on this treasured icon. Tess lets the Local 518 ROCK! and there is the weekly open mic. We want to help. Many in the community already are. This is when we all need to come together. Keep on rockin’, Lark Tavern!!!
As seen on our friends at Nippertown.com:

Jimmy Fallon’s Instant Battle of the Bands had one of our own Local 518 singers at a recent battle. Erin Harkes rocked it and has conquered a nation.
Railbird are working on a new album. To tantalize us somewhat, they are releasing an EP at Putnam Den in Saratoga (3/26, Friday).
We talk with Sarah Pedinotti and Chris Kyle and hear the EP this Thursday night at 625p. It leads up to the Exit Dome 3 rebroadcast.
