Sponsors! They help things over here at KAB, and they’re rad. If you are interested in advertising, feel free to drop me a line using the contact page and we will get something worked out.

Collar City CrossFit: Before joining, everyone that did CrossFit was ripped, and loved it. I recently joined and I totally get it now. Drop em a line, your first class is free.

The City Beer Hall: They’ve got a great craft selection on tap and even more bottles for you to choose from. Their food is really good, and if you’re not that hungry you can opt for the free pizza you get with each drink. And now, brunch on the patio.

Camp Bisco: The biggest 3-day-festival close to Albany. There is something for everyone, as well as great nights of camping.

518Prints: The only place to go if you need shirts printed. Period. Every local band shirt and more you probably don’t realize basically is done by these guys.

Sponsors! Duh! They help keep things moving over here at KAB, and they’re awesome. If you are interested in advertising, feel free to drop me a line using the contact page and we will get something worked out.

Collar City CrossFit: Each group class is headed by a trainer, complete with a warm up and cool down, and you’re in and out in an hour. The workouts are all scaled to your ability, but have you pushing yourself. I’ve been there about four weeks and feel much better already. And, your first class is free! If you’re ready to make some positive change in your life, this is the place to start.

The City Beer Hall: This place has become a real staple to this city. They’ve got a great craft selection on tap and even more bottles for you to choose from. Also, their food is insanely good, and if you’re not that hungry you can always opt for the free pizza you get with each drink. Everyone knows about their amazing patio, and they of course have plenty of space inside. Every Saturday and Sunday they’ve got their ‘Beer Brunch’ going full steam on their gorgeous patio.

Camp Bisco: The biggest 3-day-festival reasonably close to Albany. There is something for everyone, and not to mention three days of camping. We had a ton of fun there last year and expect this year to be no different.

OTS x OP1 x WCDB Interview: Jillionaire

The next round of monthly parties on the sly and OUTPOST1 (with support from WCDB) are nearing closer – current countdown reads at 10 and 11 days respectively – and the following interview was just too good to keep starred in my priority inbox any longer. This month’s headliner, Jillionaire, is hilarious (and of course, talented) and I can’t wait for us to host him in Albany on May 18th at Jillian’s, alongside Mix Pak’s Dre Skull and residents Party With Tina, Knomad and Looney.

Additionally, be sure to hit us with an e-mail at RSVP@KeepAlbanyBoring.com so we can add your name to the list for the RSVP-only Happy Hour to get the early advantage on our inexpensive-but-not-cheap drink specials. Happy Hour runs an hour prior to when we open the doors to the public too, so come hang out early.

Jillionaire has over fifteen years of experience and has created a unique sound which mashes indie dance and big room house with the caribbean rhythms of soca and dancehall. He has built up quite the resume that stretches an arms length including joining Major Lazer across the globe on a sold-out tour, curating the first Mad Decent showcase at Camp Bisco X, releasing his fair share of remixes and original tracks and plotting World Domination alongside the likes of Diplo.

To help you get acquainted with the man himself, we took some time to conduct this interview, which is a nice balance of funny and factual. Check it out beneath the cut!
