TuneLab Upstate NY (originally known as Full Spectrum Rock) was started by Pat Schrader, a Central New York native, in April 2011 to highlight the music scene of Upstate NY. This blog is fueled by the passion for rock music in it’s many forms: mainstream, punk, hardcore, metal, alternative, indie, and everything in between. The goal is to cover the upstate region – including the Capital District, Central NY, Northern NY, Finger Lakes Region, and Western NY – regarding concert announcements, local artists, and more.
A partnership was formed with tunelab™ in July 2012 which resulted in re-branding Full Spectrum Rock to TuneLab Upstate NY. This collaboration was intended to broaden the reach of the Upstate NY music scene, including greater live event awareness, artist promotion, and overall support.
