Festival Fever: Barrel Fest @ the Barrel Saloon, 9/10/11

If you’re in downtown Albany on Saturday, and the Albany Riverfront Jazz Fest isn’t your thing, you might want to head over to the Barrel Saloon Rock & Roll Country Bar for the inaugural Barrel Fest celebration.

The fest – which is actually being held outdoors in the park across the street from the Barrel Saloon – will feature music by Jonesville and Skeeter Creek. You’ll also be able to test your strength in the keg roll, tire roll and lasso competitions. And, of course, don’t forget the Barrel’s mechanical bull.

Plenty of food – including smoked pulled pork, burgers, hotdogs – and beer will be available, too.

Admission is $10, and a portion of the proceeds from the gate will go to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation.



Be Here Now: It’s the Barrel Saloon’s Grand Opening Weekend

The Barrel Saloon
Yup, there’s a new saloon in Nippertown.

The Barrel Saloon – located at 942 Broadway in Albany at the former site of Club Matrix – is celebrating its official grand opening this weekend with plenty of festivities. Billed as a “rock and roll country bar,” the Barrel features food, drink specials and lots of giveaways throughout the weekend.

And like any urban honky tonk worthy of its name, the Barrel Saloon will be featuring live music as well. Skeeter Creek kicks things off at 9pm tonight, while Jet Crash Billy steps into the spotlight at 10pm on Saturday.

Slip on your boots, grab your hat and come on down…
