A group of entrepreneurs, lawyers and business people are bringing a national entrepreneurship program to Albany, New York to help startups improve their business plans.
One Million Cups is a weekly meet-up for early-stage with free coffee and food meant to “caffeinate your entrepreneurial community.”
“This start-up community from when I was 18 to now is night and day,” said Brian Selchick, an entreprenuer and lawyer who’s helping bring the program to Albany. “So many more organizations and infrastructure and people are dedicated to the industry. I wanted to bring them together.”
Albany’s first weekly meet-up will be at The Albany Barn, on Wednesday, June 3 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m, and will meet every following Wednesday morning.
Join us 1st Friday, May 1st, from 5-8 p.m. for the opening receptions of “Lost & Found” a group mixed media exhibition, and “Metamorphosis” a solo exhibition by abstract mixed media artist Sarah Holub Schrom. (more…)
On Thursday, May 28th Albany Barn, in partnership with Creative License will present “Throwback Thursday” an evening meant to walk guests down memory lane to the ‘glory days’ or ‘horror day’ of the high school experience. With Creative License taking the lead on curating live performances to include storytelling, stand up comedy, dance, improv, and a preview of their own ‘sophomore’ production- Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead, the evening promises to be one you won’t soon forget.

Join us on Thursday, April 9th at 3:00 p.m. for an afternoon with Sweet Plantain: a dynamic classical string quartet music influenced by jazz, hip-hop, and latin rhythms.
Artfully fusing the western classical traditions in which they were trained with the hip-hop, jazz improv, and Latin rhythms on which they were raised, their unique repertoire and live shows educate and entertain. Through original compositions and arrangements, and with their use of extended percussive techniques, Sweet Plantain awakens audiences to new possibilities in chamber music. Separately hailing from The Bronx, New Jersey, and Venezuela, together these musicians give voice to a sound that is contemporary, multicultural, and very New York.
The show starts at 3pm and is powered and made possible by the Albany Barn & Troy Music Hall. Admission is free- all ages are welcomed.
Haven’t been to The Barn to check out our rehearsal rooms yet?! Well now’s the time! New renters who book 3 hours of rehearsal time between February 16 and March 30th will receive their 4th hour free! (more…)
Join us Saturday, March 7th at The Barn for an evening of “Motown & More” with Derrick Horton & The Jay Street Band with special guest Nite Train to benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital District’s programs to support families of pediatric cancer patients. (more…)
