Some bands work feverishly to clumsily veil drug-centered lyrics.
MellowHigh has little interest in making that effort—call them transparent in message, but peering through the thick cloud of smoke in their backseat is anything but.
Take the track dubbed “Yu” from the trio’s self-titled debut album for example:
I’m just tryna smoke my weed
Watch me as I’m floatin’ and I’m…

Many gentlemen and gentlewomen sporting their finest nose neighbors gathered at Brawler’s Back-Alley Deli for the third annual Stache Bash.
The event was held to raise money to benefit prostate and testicular awareness, education and research through the Movember Foundation.

People dusted off their finest ‘70s gear for the 20th annual World’s Largest Disco, held Saturday night at the Buffalo-Niagara Convention Center.
The event, which is held every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, is a great way to burn off some of those calories and mingle with friends. The VIP area on the lower floor resembled someone’s old living room, while the upper…

Buffalo is known for many different things but mostly its architecture, drinks, and music.
Thanksgiving Eve in Buffalo is known as “the biggest party night of the year.” Therefore when it is the night before Thanksgiving in Buffalo, I would expect nothing short of one large party full of great music, excellent drinks and amazing architecture. This past Wednesday night at the…
Judging by the last six months—perhaps accentuated by City of Night at Silo City and Monster 3.0 at 464—Buffalo’s art and music event planners have redefined “party.”
To draw attention—and eventually a crowd—a major event demands more than just a hyped local DJ and cheap beer. With MNM Presents’ A Night B4 Thanksgiving, the issue certainly won’t be finding entertainment—it’ll be…
Buffalo. For Real TV star Nelson Starr has highlighted many charming aspects of Buffalo: he’s explored the rejuvenated waterfront, chilled at Sportsmen’s Tavern, soaked in a Buffalo Bills tailgate and celebrated the craft-beer scene, among other activities since the “Buffalo. For Real” slogan—and accompanying video series—debuted in June 2011.
His most recent trip, however,…

Frank Turner and The Sleeping Souls stormed the stage at Town Ballroom on Sautrday night to a packed crowd. The theater was crammed with fans who knew every lyric of the English singer-songwriter. Frank paused singing multiple times throughout the performance to allow fans chime in.
Frank Turner gained fame from his lead vocalist position for post-hardcore band, Million Dead,…
If you put together a list of some of the most talented lyricists in history to grace the microphone, it better include Rakim! He recently touched down in Buffalo to give the local hip-hop heads a taste of his skills, and it was far from disappointing.
He started his career in the mid-‘80s and has been a major part of hip-hop ever since. It was when Rakim teamed up with Eric B to…
