Tyler Harrington We'll celebrate our dear, departed friend and fellow musician's life at Mohawk Place on July 23. Roger Waters… …has shattered my heart with his incredible new album "Is This the Life We Really Want?" Yuck! New Arcade Fire single "Everything Now" sounds like ABBA, minus the strong hooks. What's happening here? https://open.spotify.com…

There's something poetic about Starry Night in the Garden, where each year, we are welcomed to the Buffalo & Erie County Botanical Gardens to take in some live music beneath the stars, not far from the Peace Garden and the Meditation Garden. These spaces are meant to promote reflection, and talk of "spiritual healing" sounds far less idealistic here than it does out…

Ready, set – festival. Buffalo’s season of all-day outdoor music extravaganzas has arrived. And though not technically summer yet (which starts this year on June 21) , the live performance party starts at 1:30 p.m. June 17 with 107.7 Alternative Buffalo’s Kerfuffle within the cobblestone-laden confines of Canalside. Now in its fourth year, the sweaty, synth-ac…

This is Chris Lane’s true Urban legend: It’s 2006, or thereabouts. Lane is a senior at UNC Charlotte. He’s a darn good college baseball player, a guy with a sterling .303 batting average and aspirations of turning pro. But with every legend comes the macabre. Lane’s plague is injuries. During his college career, he tore his meniscus. He ripped his rotator cuff. He…

East Aurora is alive with the sound of music. The Roycroft Chamber Music Festival is in full swing. The concerts feature a host of the region's most prominent musicians, many from the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. This year, the festival welcomes some new talent. Cellist Bob Donowick, a Juilliard graduate from West Seneca, is joining the roster. So is cellist Sarah …

Influential shoegaze icon Slowdive will ride its comeback into Buffalo at 8 p.m. Nov. 9 in the Town Ballroom (681 Main St.). The English band's latest, the dreamy self-titled "Slowdive," has been critically praised as a vital addition to the band's small, yet era-defining discography, since its May release. The album is Slowdive's first since 1995's "Pygmalion." …

"That's our word now, and you can’t have it back." A simple sentence, but with it, Ice Cube managed to do three things. He shut down Bill Maher, who had come under fire for casually employing a racial epithet on his previous week's show. He signified his own return as a powerful voice in hip-hop, just in time for the 25th anniversary reissue of his scathing, gam…

The continuing legacy of the June in Buffalo Festival can be judged by the impressive number of former participants who have spent a week exploring musical possibilities and then gone on to perpetuate the ideas discovered and/or honed here. That said, the players and composers filing into the classrooms and auditoriums at University at Buffalo’s Baird and Slee Halls thi…

Making sure 25,000 fans can safely and quickly enter a major summer concert is no simple feat, especially in a time where security is heightened due to incidents like the explosions at Ariana Grande's concert in Manchester or the shootings in Orlando's Pulse nightclub. WYRK and the Buffalo Bisons instituted walk-through metal detectors for the first time at Saturday's T…

Despite several presale opportunities for both U2 fan club members and Buffalo Bills season ticket holders, Monday's general public on-sale for U2's Sept. 5 appearance at New Era Field seems to have gone relatively smoothly. If you wanted a ticket, you probably got one. Whether it was the ticket you were hoping for is another story. At 3 p.m. Monday, tickets remained…

Multiplatinum rap-metal-rock hybrid outfit Linkin Park has now acknowledged what so many in-tune music lovers in the area have long known – the Buffalo region is brimming with vibrant musical talent across the genre spectrum. Jaycee Lamb, a hip-hop kid from Kenmore, and Jarrett Hoyt, a Lockport EDM artist, have both gained the attention of Linkin Park and Open Labs wh…

Beck will be the opening act for U2 when the band brings its "Joshua Tree 30" tour to Buffalo in September. Tickets for the Sept. 5 concert at New Era Field go on sale at 10 a.m. June 12. Beck will take the opening slot for U2's seven shows in September in the United States. The 46-year-old from Los Angeles, Calif., has captured five Grammys, including a 2015 upset o…

The high, concrete underbelly of Interstate 190 in downtown Buffalo was a festive pre-concert scene on Saturday night before the 18th Annual WYRK Taste of Country. There were the usual things: beer pong matches and their subsequent sticky spills, grilling, and singalongs to car stereos – loud country songs that soon would be heard live. There was also the tall guy in …
