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
Just another hardcore troubadour
In this era of all the music in existence being available for the streaming on the Internet, it can be surprisingly difficult to find something to listen to. More truly lovely music than I could ever hope to hear in my lifetime is out there, waiting for me to discover it, but it’s…
Music at the MBT
Clear your calendars
It is common for Bellingham’s many music venues to offer live entertainment several nights a week. That is, after all, how you make your living at a music venue.
However, it is a little more unusual for the Mount Baker Theatre to have that kind of a busy schedule. Don’t get me wrong,…
Music at the Movies
From Peter Pan to Ben-Hur
After several months of partaking of music in the great outdoors, judging by the fact that I wore sweaters more days last week than I donned T-shirts, I’d say fall is definitely happening, despite my efforts to deny it. For some of you, the changing of the seasons is an excuse to clamber…
