Free Fridays at the Buff
Get what you pay for
Wednesday, February 6, 2013
They say nothing in life is free. They say you get what you pay for.
I don’t know who “they” are, but they’re clearly not on staff at the Wild Buffalo.
Because, as they have done in the past, every Friday in February, the Buff is hosting free shows. They kicked the series of complimentary concerts off on Fri., Feb 1 with a show by Jon Wayne and the Pain, who arrived at the bar with a $20,000 light rig dubbed by the band as its “ReggaeTronic laser dub show.”
But the Wild Buffalo was just getting started.
Come Fri., Feb. 8, Zion I (no, that’s not a misprint) will be the next headliner in the free Friday lineup (yes, it really is free). Keeping in mind that this hip-hop performer can sell out the Buffalo on a regular night with a regular cover charge, it’s safe to say that if you are interested in attending this free fiesta of fun, you’d best be in line when the venue’s doors open at 8pm and they begin doling out the first-come, first-served tickets.
After that, Medium Troy and Jiminy Glitch will play their free show on Fri., Feb. 15, while Jokers of the Scene and Boom Box Kid will close out the month of gratis good times.
Someone also once said that the best things in life are free. When it comes to Fridays in February at the Wild Buffalo, “they” couldn’t be more right.
Free Fridays at the Wild Buffalo (208 W. Holly St.) continues at 8pm this Fri., Feb. 8 with Zion I and A-1. Cost: Free. More info: http://www.wildbuffalo.net
Hovander Homestead Bluegrass Festival
Party in the park
Several years ago, after undergoing a series of personal setbacks, I decided it was time to take my show on the road. Generally speaking, I’m a firm believer that wherever you go, there you are. But in this case, a change in geography seemed in order.
So, I moved to Ferndale.
From Minus the Bear to Macklemore
If you happened to wander past the Wild Buffalo last weekend, chances are pretty good you found that the normally lively music venue had gone dark, save for a private event Sunday night. This darkness probably confused you, as it is not the norm for the Buff, a place where a blank space in…
Northwest Washington Fair
An affair to remember
By now it is no secret that I love the Northwest Washington Fair above almost all things in my life. Perhaps that sounds like hyperbole, the kind of exaggerated statement a person makes when they’re trying to grab your attention.
But with me, it’s stone cold truth.
It’s also not…
