Tonight: buffaBLOG’s 6th Birthday Party

There’s something great to be said about the camaraderie that has formed between buffaBLOG, Buffalo musicians and honest music lovers over the past six years. We’re celebrating the all-around enthusiasm for the local music scene as well as the DIY essence of that camaraderie tonight at Nietzsche’s, and the lineup couldn’t be doper. Helping to kick…

Comfy

What would a birthday party be without some out-of-town charm? Well in the case of our fifth birthday party, it would be without Comfy, Utica’s buzzing indie-rock (and roll) sweethearts. We’ve had our ears on Comfy for a while now; their early 2014 debut Pillowhugger, an endearing collection of garage pop confessionals smothered in slacky indie-rock…

buffaBLOG 5th Birthday Party @ Nietzsche’s (3/28/15)

The blog crew ringed in our 5th birthday this Saturday night with a packed house and a bill full of Buffalo’s (and one of Utica’s) very best acts. On hand to shoot the evening was blog friend and local photographer, Nate Peracciny, capturing sets from Zak Ward, Comfy, Applennium, and many more, in addition to…

Wooden Waves

I’ve seen a lot different ways to describe Wooden Waves. Some may consider them surf rock, others electro-pop.  The band was even nominated as one of the best ska bands in all of Western New York by the highly regarded All WNY Music Awards. I’m the kind of guy that likes to walk my own path,…

M.A.G.S.

That Made Violent homecoming show the other week at Waiting Room was great for a variety of reasons, but one of my favorites was watching the crowd meet M.A.G.S., who played second at the show. It’s always enjoyable watching a crowd get introduced to an new act, but that Friday night something more happened: that…

Five Year Rewind: Staff Picks – Part 1

Since the blog debuted on March 28th, 2010, with a truly horrible post about a Passion Pit show (sorry Bill), our ever revolving staff of writers and contributors have spun hundreds of albums and songs, and attended more shows in and out of Buffalo than I dare to count. To commemorate our upcoming five year…

Tonight: buffaBLOG 5th Birthday Party

Later tonight at Nietzsche’s, we return to the seen of the crime: our first birthday party. Looking back at the bill from that night, a lot has changed since then. Love Scenes and Arctic Death are no longer active. The birD day moved out to Portland, and the Tins just returned from SXSW. All week…

Difficult Night

Difficult Night sits at the intersection of a handful of disparate influences. There’s the Malkmus vibe in the lyrics, the vocals and the music, but not quite so wacky. It’s a bit more conversational, if you you imagine you’re having a conversation with a hyperliterate neurotic. It noodles, it jams, it bobs your head. Sometimes…

Mr. Boneless

If you happened to miss our 4th birthday party a couple weekends ago at Duke’s, thanks a lot. I am sure you had a good excuse. Kidding of course. For those who could not make it though, we did happen to capture some footage of all of the acts performing, and over the next couple…

Just Announced: buffaBLOG 5th Birthday Party

Just about four years ago, we threw our first birthday party at Nietzsche’s. We only had about six regular writers at the time, and none of us knew the first thing about putting on a show. Half of the musicians we asked to play were underage (something Curt still won’t let me live down), we…
