Free Concerts

Artpark hit it out of the park literally. I know Buffalo Place has their lineup next week but at this point I really don't care what they throw out there for Thursdays. I'm just excited that the company that runs it finally put together a plan that puts it at the pinnacle of the "free" shows in the area. Basically they put together a way to have the people that want to see a show without dealing with drunken idiots a way to enjoy it and at the same time raise revenue to keep it free for the people that just want to enjoy outdoor happy hour. What impresses me is that they were able to get a Livenation Amphitheatre show Peter Frampton - Frampton Comes Alive 35 Tour and put it out there for "free."

Which makes me think; Why doesn't Buffalo Place just close off the Memorial, charge $25 and make that VIP seating with beverage service?

My Response to: "If I could live anywhere else I would choose to live in ...." suggested by e:paul

Southern California

Well at least not in the smog someone a bit out of the smoke if that is possible, but the place is one of the chakra's of the planet (throat) and the place just seems to be another dimension entirely. I love that the "retroness" of the town is the 1950's and not 2 centuries ago. If I could go to the Hollywood Bowl to catch shows once in a while that would be sweet. Also how can you beat the fact that I would be able to go to Santa Monica and Venice Beach on a regular basis?

Airfare! Seriously

Who the F in their right mind would pay this much money to fly from Buffalo to Florida [through Cleveland & Toronto & deal with Customs] for the price of $2,248 when you can fly other alternative airlines for around $300-$400 for the same destination one way ticket?

Totally WTF!?!

Who is Arcade Fire?

It's just sad how American Idol and Dancing with the Stars this country has become. The Grammy's are not a popularity contest, it's a group consensus of the 12,000 CREATIVE people who WORK IN THE INDUSTRY! That's the beauty of it to be honest. I remember back in the 90's when Bonnie Raitt cleaned house and people were like "Who is Bonnie Raitt?"



I am just happy that a Canadian group got to sit on top of the musical world Sunday night with Album of the Year. It's funny reading these comments on this tumblr
The Suburbs is the name of the band??? Look Tiffany, just because you never heard of them doesn't mean that they're not Phenomenal, the world does not revolve around you or started when you were born. It's funny and yet sad to sort through that thing.

But I have to say their sit eating grin at the beginning of Ready is just priceless and EPIC.

Emo Starbucks Run

For some reason last night as I was driving home I searched Niagara Falls Ontario for a Starbucks I stumbled upon WBNY 91.3 as it was the station that I had my iPod Belkin set to. They were playing some emo tunes, I have to admit I did find them appealing and actually got into them as the totally matched my mood. A part of me wishes that I was able to pull the Buff St station during my "Prime" when I was sniffing around Lundy's Lane. After searching the Lane, Fallsview Casino & Embassy Suites I was able to find a Starbucks open at the Sheraton next door to Casino Niagara. Apparently they are open to Midnight Sun-Thurs and close at 1am Sat & Sun. Finally I was able to grab my Calm tea for a nightcap before I started the week.



The beauty is that I was driving down the Lane, Ferry St and then Clifton Hill. It was pretty quiet as the Super Bowl ended 1.5 hrs ago. But driving down Clifton Hill with the Get Up Kids "Long Goodnight" just was a perfect song for the moment.





Now I also realized just by looking at their website how lame WBNY is most of the time. This is compared to what I am exposed to when I listen to WBER out of Rochester. It is not even close, WBER has much more of a dynamic range and also gives you in detail what they play. I just so wish I was able to play WBER in my car.

  • Linnie 10/17 06:57 Hi Neighbors - I just bought a groovy renovated carriage house on Linwood Ave, and I'm so excited to live in our wonderful city! The large house in front of the carriage house burned down in the 70's. An article I found about the property cited that 'Matthew' on this site had posted a series of photos called 'Lost Linwood" (article was from 2012). I thought maybe Matthew was still on this site or perhaps someone could help me find the photos. I'd love to see the original house and carriage house
