Last call for Live at Larkin
blog by Morgan Culhane • September 14, 2013 @ 9:11am
Live at Larkin, Buffalo’s 14-week free summer concert series, will come to an end Wednesday with a performance by Peter Case and Leroy Townes from 5 to 8 p.m.at Larkin Square, 745 Seneca St., Buffalo.
The series exclusively features live local talent, with over 30 bands or artists taking the stage this summer at Larkin Square. Not only are the concerts free, but Larkinville has a marketplace open during the concerts with a variety of local vendors.
Peter Case, a three time Grammy nominee, will be sure to draw in a large crowd for the summer’s final concert. Raised in Buffalo, Case dropped out of high school in ninth grade and started his music career as a street musician in San Francisco. Then he joined two bands, The Nerves and Plimsouls, before launching his solo career in 1986. Case has since released six CDs which vary in style from blues to folk rock to new wave music.
Case has been touring frequently, performing roughly 100 gigs in the past year. While touring, he is also working on finishing a new album and a book, “As Far As You Can Get Without A Passport.”
Leroy Townes will also be performing on Wednesday. The band made up of one acoustic guitarist, two electric guitarists, a bassist, a dobroist and a drummer, will play some more rock tunes and also some alternative country.
