The only rock festival in the Albany area was a huge success - thanks to everyone who came out to see Q-Ruption at SPAC on Friday night. After the jump check out the galleries of performers Selfish Needy Creatures, Egypt Central, Sick Puppies, Skillet, Five Finger Death Punch, and Godsmack. Selfish Needy Creatures kicked off Q-Ruption after competing in and winning our play for the stage contest. A great start to a great night.

Egypt Central joined Free Beer and Hot Wings at their national broadcast from Saratoga Racecourse first thing this morning and then rocked it at SPAC.

Sick Puppies are nearly done with their US tour and made a special trip to the Albany area to play Q-Ruption. They're heading back to the land down under for some much needed rest.

Skillet brought the stings, masks, and the music and put on one of the most high energy performances of the night. Definitely memorable.

Five Finger Death Punch always rocks the house and they are no stranger to audiences in the Albany area. They got the crowd pumped for Godsmack too.

The band that everyone was anticipating for months definately was worth the wait - Godsmack returned to the stage at SPAC for Q-Ruption and rocked the house.
