After less than two years in business, Waiting Room (334 Delaware Ave.) will expand to include a second floor concert venue and bar known as the Studio. A grand opening celebration for the new venue will take place beginning at 6 p.m. today.
Wednesdays will offer the opportunity for patrons to hop on stage with the house band for an evening of “Live Band Karaoke.” Thursdays will feature a full schedule of local original bands and DJs. Fridays will be taken over by 107.7 FM Alternative Buffalo’s “New Noise,” a weekly indie/electro dance party. Saturdays will be old-school night featuring an evening’s worth of Motown, doo-wop and ‘60s rock.
The first floor of the Waiting Room will continue to operate as a concert venue presenting both national touring acts and local bands. Upcoming shows include a bill headlined by You Me At Six on Friday and Maritime Law on Saturday. Information on both Waiting Room and the new Studio @ Waiting Room is available via www.waitingroombuffalo.com.
