Extending a tradition that has helped establish Larkinville as a unique entertainment destination, Holiday Live at Larkin is returning for a third year with even more fun added to the free event that supports the Food Bank of Western New York.
Set for Friday, December 5th, in Larkin Square, Holiday Live at Larkin will once again be headlined by a two-hour performance under the heated, covered boardwalk from Robot Holiday, the local collective known for original, nontraditional holiday music which has again recorded a new album full of songs, “Between the Snowflakes.” In a new twist this year, Read more
Building on the success of last month’s four-band bill and instrument donation drive for Music is Art at Nietzsche’s, The Good Hood returns this Saturday, November 22nd, with a wildly different lineup.
Over the past couple weeks, Starlight Studio & Art Gallery staff and artists have dropped what we’ve been working on to see the 17 community artists and their completed artworks. When Nancy Parisi brought in hers, she had a chance to talk with her Co-Artifact partner artist, Ricky Hogan, and see how he had finished the work she started. Read more

Good Neighbors, yours requests have been answered – we’re bringing back our monthly Friendraiser!
Join us at The Filling Station in Larkin Square, on Monday, December 1st, from 5:30-7pm, for an informal mixer to connect Good Neighbors with common causes – feel free to bring business cards and any promotional material. While everyone will be introduced formally for the sake of networking, we spotlight one specific cause at each Friendraiser, with this month’s focus on the reformed Give for Greatness (G4G) program, now supported by Arts Services Initiative of WNY (ASI). With ASI’s providing of office and administrative support, G4G is again awarding grants to local arts and cultural organizations; we’ll introduce their new director and committee members, who will discuss future event plans, including one in an exciting new location near Larkinville.

As Larkin Square’s Food Truck Tuesday has become one of Buffalo’s biggest dinner parties, the success of the six-month season that ended in October called for an encore – enter Food Truck Turkey, set for the perfect occasion of one of Buffalo’s biggest social nights, Thanksgiving Eve.
While the 30+ food trucks from Buffalo and Rochester will not necessarily be serving Thanksgiving dinner staples, the spirit of the season will be felt in Larkin Square – live music will be provided by Buffalo band Gravy, named after their claim to “cover everything” with a fresh and funky twist, and the Salvation Army will be on site with a goal of “stuffing the truck” with donations of food and winter clothing.

Here at BBBSEC, we work hard day-to-day, but we also like to hang out with our friends, enjoy good food and get to know new people. That’s why we regularly host our “Big Mixer” events.

Starlight Studio and Art Gallery, a division of LDA of WNY, has begun a new project with local community artists called Co-Artifact. The Buffalo community, especially the community of area artists, has always been very supportive of what we do at Starlight. With this in mind, I happened across an online story of a graphic illustrator, her very young daughter and their collaborations. The wheels started turning. Read more
