Photo of the day: The Coats at the Night Glow
"The Coats" are an extraoridinary acapella quartet based in Seattle. My family and I have been following them for years, since stumbling on them at the Washington State Fair about 1995. The last two years, by a lucky convergence, they've also been the highlight performers at the Albany Art and Air Festival's "Night Glow" event; you can see the hot air balloons going up in the background as the guys sing. They did most of their set on a temporary stage, of course, but even there it's in their nature to interact with the audience, so it made for a great photo when they came down into the crowd for one of their songs.
