To say it’s been a trying week for indie electro-pop duo MS MR would be a wild understatement.
On Tuesday night in Miami, Lizzy Plapinger and Max Hershenow had gear and a laptop thieved that contained MS MR’s entire catalog of lyrics and music.
That second album due out later in 2014 will be in major jeopardy if the stolen goods are not returned.
Despite the adversity, MS…

Iliza Shlesinger’s comedy is expressive, fast-paced and contemporary.
She had the crowd roaring at both shows Friday night at the Helium Comedy Club in the Cobblestone District. There are two more shows on Saturday night, certainly worth the trip downtown, especially if you’re not a college basketball fan.
Austin Lafond, a talented young up and coming comedian from Rochester and…

Contemporary Buffalonians tend to view their city’s presidential history as a bit of a bummer.

An interview of disconnected questions can be—and should be—construed as lazy, a chat for which the interviewer was ill-prepared, leaving the interviewee’s mind racing between divergent topics.

A waste of time for all involved…

The United Irish American Association (UIAA) of Erie County has organized the St Patrick’s Day Parade since 1940 with the mission to conduct a great religious, patriotic and civic event in Buffalo that honors Saint Patrick and highlights the Irish contributions to…

In a world full of technology and social networking, there is something magical about seeing a community that can come together as one and celebrate their heritage.
That was the typical scene on Saturday afternoon down in the Old First Ward for the annual Old Neighborhood St. Patrick’s Day Parade that wound through the Old First Ward in South Buffalo.

Thousands of lucky Buffalonians gathered at the second annual Live at O’Larkin at Larkin Square on Friday night.
Luck would have it just two days after the Vulcan Blizzard the event celebrating the weekend leading up to St. Patrick’s Day was blessed with temperatures above 50 degrees making it an especially celebratory evening.
The happy attendees enjoyed food from 15…

As you’ll see in the gallery above, Buffalo’s St. Patrick’s Day weekend celebrations bring out quite the cast of characters.
The traditional events have a bit of a murky history—as you’ll see in Sunday’s Buffalo News—but they’re consistent and absurdly popular (and free!).
If you need a refresher, keep reading (and then read this primer from Gusto):
1) The Old Neighborhood St.…
