A five-piece rock combo with roots extending from Sri Lanka to the Bronx to the North Country will showcase music from their new album on Friday, July 9, at Plattsburgh’s Harborside Stage, with some beloved rock classics rounding out what promises to be a spirited, impactful evening of original and familiar music.
Ursa & The Major Key — comprised of Saranac-born brothers Eli and Nelson Moore on guitar and drums, respectively; Bronx native Edward Morris on bass; Adirondack-born Tyler Bosley on guitar, and Vihan Wickramasinghe, born and raised in Sri Lanka and musically educated in the North Country — will feature music from their newest album, Daytime/Nighttime, created in their basement studio during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Daytime/Nighttime is a concept album in the tradition of The Beach Boys’s Pet Sounds and Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here, tracing the emotional arc of a single day. The album ranges from the day’s awakening in Only the Sky Is Blue to the tongue-in-cheek poetic sarcasm in Don’t Think It Even Matters to the ‘60s soul-infused emotions of Yeah You’re Gonna Be Something to the gritty, jam-heavy White Sands, an unfiltered musical look at the military industrial complex.
The Harborside Stage is stationed in the parking lot near Dock Street, behind the D&H Railway Station and close to the Plattsburgh City Marina. Attendants will begin parking vehicles on a first come, first served basis at 6:30 p.m. for this concert, with tickets available at the gate. Admission is only $20 per carload — not per person — with the box office proceeds going to the artists.
