Let the good times roll… Fat Tuesday is just around the corner and Buffalo is going to be celebrating New Orleans style as Artvoice presents its 18th annual Mardi Gras Parade and Festival.
On Fat Tuesday (February 12th), Historic Allentown and surrounding areas will become Buffalo’s own French Quarter. Start partying at 5pm when the parade takes an all new route down Allen St, and keep partying until we get kicked out!
All funds raised by $5 bracelet sales benefit Give for Greatness, a not-for-profit organization that raises funding and awareness for Western New York’s beloved arts and cultural institutions.
It’s Buffalo’s biggest party night of the year… so come out and party for a great cultural cause!

I heard thru the grapevine that the Westboro Baptist church is planning to protest the funerals of the firemen in Webster who just got murdered while they were trying to put out a fire.
All my Rochester friends: Please, please, PLEASE pass this on to EVERYONE you know! Those Westboro Baptist church are planning to protest the funerals of the fireman that were just killed. PLEASE gather as many people as you can to form a human wall to block those jerks from causing mental/emotional harm to already suffering families. Share this with everyone! Details of when and where will follow shortly.”
I’m from Webster and this sort of noise is not tolerated and I will not let these idiots cause my hometown more pain than we’ve already suffered this week.
It’s still not known when the funerals will be but I’ll edit this post or re-post once it’s known.
SPREAD THE WORD, SIGNAL BOOST AND ROLL THE HELL OUT
I’ll spread the word as best as I can to my volunteer firefighter friends here in Buffalo and hopefully some of my followers can help as well!
Walmart, which has been rumored to be looking for a North Buffalo location for years, apparently is close to buying properties at the northwest corner of Hertel and Elmwood avenues for a new store. A commercial real estate insider says the retail giant is said to be buying a string of properties “from the donut shop to the Home Depot plaza.”
Walmart on Hertel and Elmwood, good idea or bad idea?
It is with sadness we have to announce that for reasons out of our control, we will be closing after January 12th. None of us will forget the friendships made and the great music all of us have witnessed over the many, many years. With the sadness comes a little bit of joy that we still have time left to go to shows, and time to share how important this place is to so many people. A big thanks to Marty, Bill, Mike, Donny, Chris, Bryce and countless others of the past and current staff for making the place more than just four walls with a stage. We thank each and every one of you who played a show, bought a ticket, and drank our beers.
