Thanksgiving Eve at Hotel Lafayette: Music, charity, chaos
blog by Kathryn Przybyla • October 01, 2013 @ 11:09am
One of Buffalo’s biggest reunion nights of the year, Thanksgiving Eve is known around WNY as a party night where friends from school all meet up before feasting with their respective families.
MNM Presents is proudly hosting their own major event that night to keep the evening going—The Night B4 Thanksgiving kicking off at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 27 and going through the early hours of the morning at the Hotel Lafayette.
Tickets to the 21+ event are $17 in advance, $20 at the door and can be purchased through the Facebook page. Additionally, this event is a proud sponsor of Toys for Tots.
Guests who bring in one new unwrapped toy will receive a gift card for their first free drink of the night. Pay it forward and help out some kids for the holidays.
Below you can find the evening’s schedule of events and sets.
Pan American / Mezzanine Space
Featuring Lazlo Hollyfeld, the 12/8 Path Band, Cutler, Lopro, Josh YourMoms and Funktional Flow.
A midnight balcony set from area post-rock legends Lazlo Hollyfeld. A fully-mobile, unplugged onslaught from world-beat street parade 12/8 Path Band. All-night 4-deck record-droppin’ from Buffalo’s finest. And some “flow” from the city’s favorite 4-piece dance-rock-funk outfit Funktional Flow. Welcome to the party.
Upstairs Den of Debauchary
Featuring the Knowmatic Tribe Soundsystem, God Morgen, Marcos Udagawa, Xotec, 3PO, DJ Matty and special NYC guest Queen Majesty.
Once upon a time in 1994, in the basement of this very building, the Knowmatic Tribe was born. With a few crackling speakers, a big sense of humor and a bloodlust for the funk TKTSS began, forever changing Buffalo’s EDM underground. On this night—through music, shock factor, unity and the spirit of their late brethren and co-founder Christ Sinister, they’re back. The legend and the reality. The Knowmatic Tribe.
The Igloo Music Room
Featuring Paul Kuenzi, Rufus Gibson, 222Oceans, Cloud11, Greg Howze, Bill Bacon, DJ Lalka and John Patrick.
Igloo Music is the new breed of Buffalo house music. Formed by co-founders Paul Kuenzi and Brandon Chase, they’ve redefined our area’s more intimate scene. Focusing on the deeper, minimal, sexy side of techno house, their events range from underground warehouses, to small clubs, to patios and battleships. Come join in.
