No Fun Troy to open December 10, announces shows

From their Instagram:

Here is the plan. We are slated to officially open FRIDAY DECEMBER 10TH! First show is 12/11 with @godblesstheabyssmals, @dyr_faser & @y33ba. Lot going on here right off the bat thanks to @100psychicdreams. Go to our Eventbrite page to secure a spot for the @ponyinthepancake Holiday Party ($5) & No Fun NYE with @candyambulanceband, @lavedamusic, @cindycanesvcks & ($10 with champagne toast). Opened up some more @anothermichaelofficial tickets too! While the size of the room is decent, space is finite, and these two will most likely fill up. Link in bio for the Eventbrite ticket page. Everything else is free. STOKED to open the doors and see how this evolves. See you soon. Spread the word. Can’t wait to enjoy some really good beers with you all. Have a nice weekend. ✌️

Eventbrite link here. So pumped for Troy to have a proper music venue!

Upstate Mixtape Vol. 1

Upstate Mixtape is a compilation of musicians and artists hailing from the Capital Region of NY. This mixtape is part of antiracist grassroots fundraising efforts, spearheaded by Jammella Anderson. 100% of the proceeds of this compilation album will be redistributed back to the Black musicians and artists who contributed to it. We carefully selected the white musicians that were asked to be a part of this project as being in line with our values of antiracism and commitment to amplify Black voices.
Songs contributed here are anything from demos, to B-sides, to album loose ends to showcase the multifaceted musicians from the 518.

1983 – Saturday’s Child
