Normally First Niagara Center is the place to see the Buffalo Sabres perform, but Saturday night they entertained fans in a very different way.
The first UnPucked event was held to benefit the Buffalo Sabres Foundation, and it featured both current and former players. They were joined by a number of songwriters: David Lee Murphy, Doug Johnson, Tony Arata and Jim Peterik, who have…
Even though the life of Sublime’s lead singer Bradley Nowell was cut tragically short 18 years ago, Sublime’s memories and music still live on to this very day.
It could quite possibly be due to their style and originality of music, along with the help of the cover band Badfish.
Badfish is one of the premier Sublime cover bands in the world. If you close your eyes while sitting…
Buffalo has cascaded into a Golden Age of firsts: the first downtown stand-alone breweries and distillery since Prohibition, the first forays into reviving the grain elevators, the first Dinosaur BBQ, Popeye’s and Sonic Drive-In, and even the first Stanley Cup.
To say that Spooky Business, the collaborative product Stephen Pieroni (right in header) and Sean Heidinger (left), is…

It’s not easy to write an article about Badfish.
The circumstances surrounding the Sublime tribute band don’t waver much: the band plays the same covers and incites the same live-performance energy from both band-mates and crowds over the last 14 years.
Sometimes, there’s nothing wrong with consistency—especially when a good product maintains a high standard.
Remember when the Buffalo Sabres’ locker-room obsession with Kings of Leon made the news in 2008? In the half-decade since, it appears the musical taste of our local skaters has matured.
Beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, current and former Buffalo Sabres will host a music-centered event, UnPucked, on the floor of the First Niagara Center, inviting major songwriters for a…
A thawed out and flooded downtown Buffalo welcomed Brooklyn’s Bear Hands to Waiting Room on Friday night.

Cults, an indie band that formed in NYC when guitarist Brian Oblivion and singer Madeline Follin were students, brought its beautiful and dreamy pop sound to Tralf Music Hall on another cold Monday night.
This was their fourth appearance in Buffalo, at the fourth different location, which just reinforces the wealth of riches that Buffalo has in its music scene. The crowd was…

There are typical band narratives—stories that hinge on personality conflicts among band members, bands falling victim to drug use and perceived invincibility, and other divisive events that quickly turn harmony into dissonance.
