No Fun Troy going hard bringing live music to Troy

There’s a ton of events on their calendar. If you’re comfortable going out and looking for live music, they have you covered. There’s something for everyone: hardcore, indie, house, etc.

If you’re looking for a lower key kind of thing, check out the Whiskey Pickle, who have had a lot of artists performing lately. It’s also a nice non-pretentious cocktail bar.

Looks like my days of hating on Troy for having zero live music is officially over.

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!

Berben & Wolff’s opening Troy location August 13

Opening up in the Brown Bag’s old spot, Berben & Wolff’s is officially coming to Troy. The new location’s menu is below, and I’m excited to see they will be offering fries in many variations, as well as an upgrade onto their sandwiches. Other new menu items include Mozzarella Sticks and Southern Fried Cauliflower. The sandwich board appears to match the Albany location.
