Slug opens Fireworks over Utica

The local American roots band SLUG opened up Fireworks over Utica on Saturday to an enthusiastic crowd. Their set featured mostly original music but closed with a Bob Dylan tribute to recently deceased local music aficionado, Paul May. The event took place at Hanna park, an unusual use of an urban area for a wide range of bands embracing all styles of rock music. The event was headlined by rock legends Blue Oyster Cult followed by a fireworks display.
