Dog Days of Summer Concert at Sportsmens to Benefit Pet Emergency Fund

This post currently has no comments.

Some summer nights, it seems the entire community is outdoors with music in the air, which is wonderful…unless your business depends on people gathering indoors. In effort to beat back these “dog days” at indoor concert venues and support a dog-related cause in the process, a tenured team of Buffalo musicians who care about both are gathering for an indoor-outdoor benefit at one of their favorite places to play, the Sportsmens Tavern.

Goodness gracious, our weekly dual band encores at Live at Larkin have been a blast! Here are videos of the past three for anyone who’s missed them or would like to relive the “magic” - official term explained below. The first is the most recent, when Jony James Band and Dive House Union united to create what in my opinion was the greatest musical moment in Larkin Square history to date, and certainly the loudest ovation we’ve heard there.  Read moreRead more

Summer has arrived.  Time to soak up some sun, reunite with old friends, meet new people and enjoy the many blessings the season has to offer.  Just a short drive from the City of Good Neighbors you will find one of my all-time favorite summer spots – the Griffis Sculpture Park.  From my first visit to the 200+ acre park, I simply fell in love.  Laden with brilliant sculptures of all shapes and sizes, the stunning landscape of hills and ponds comes alive with thousands of visitors each year to come and explore, hike, picnic and become inspired.

We’re two-for-two with our new feature of a dual band encore at Live at Larkin free Wednesday concerts in Larkin Square - just as Week 1 was a winner with Vinnie DeRosa joining Neville Francis & the Riddim Posse for a couple classics from The Wailers, the Week 2 combo of The Albrights and Aircraft was “killer” – “Psycho Killer,” that is, the Talking Heads hit that was one of four songs performed before a roused crowd as each band took the lead for two.

Herd Fest Hits Tonight – Here Are 3.5 Reasons to See More Than Just Our 7 Bands

This weekend marks a potentially big moment for Buffalo’s music scene, as Buffablog’s inaugural Herd Fest hits Allentown for a two-night stands 43 acts across nine showcases in six venues. Envisioned as our own spin on showcase-style music festivals such as SXSW and CMJ, Herd Fest is starting relatively small but has the makings of much more – first, for the quality of acts such as those sampled below, and second, for the spirit of collaboration that is driving much of Buffalo’s rebirth.  Read moreRead more

Being Beastie Benefit to Return to DBGB

I’ve got redemption on my mind. Back in 2012, at the time of the first Being Beastie benefit in which the public was invited to take on the Beastie Boys song of their choice backed by the band Rhubarb, I wanted in – both to have fun honoring the influence of one of the legendary trio in the wake of the passing of their own Adam “MCA” Yauch to salivary gland cancer, and to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society fundraising effort led by DTR45‘s Tony Caferro and Live for a Cure‘s Damon Bodine, the latter having put the disease in remission.
