Assuming the spirit of the late, great Johnny Cash is no small task – but for the fourth year in a row at Buffalo’s venerable music club Nietzsche’s, five acts will do so in honor of The Man in Black’s upcoming birthday.
Among the stalwarts of Buffalo’s music scene performing are both annual favorites and newcomers – The CPX, Ten Cent Howl, Stoneflower, David Michael Miller of Dive House Union, and Jim Candytree & Megan Brown of Whiskey Reverb, all of whom are sharing their song selections to ensure there will be no repeats. The 4 hours of nonstop Cash between two stages will follow the monthly 6-10pm performance of Cash classics and more by Buffalo’s Band Named Sue.
As part of The Good Neighborhood’s Tributaries series supporting Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper, signup sheets will be shared encouraging attendees to join Riverkeeper’s annual Spring Shoreline Sweep on Saturday, April 25th – their fall sweep engaged 683 volunteers at 26 sites and collected over 3 tons of trash out of our waterways.
“The Johnny Cash Birthday Bash is one of our favorite annual events in The Good Hood,” said Seamus Gallivan. “It’s an uplifting celebration honoring an all-time American icon, and we know The Man in Black would appreciate that so many attendees make time to give back by supporting the ‘Big Rivers’ off of which we live.”
