Concert review - Firehouse - Brauns Concert Dome - Akron, NY - 08/30/2013

Review/photo by Thomas S. Orwat Jr.

Akron, NY - Multi-platinum, 90's hard-rockers, Firehouse, turned up the heat on an already hot night, when they performed last Friday, at what is quickly becoming the most popular concert facility in WNY- Brauns Concert Dome. The decent-sized crowd was ready to party after local cover band, Hit N Run, played a predictable, high-energy set of classic rock and 80's covers. This was the first WNY performance for Firehouse in eight years, and it certainly turned out to be worth the wait.

Concert review - Goo Goo Dolls, Darien Lake PAC, Darien, NY - 08/24/2013


Darien Lake, NY- The Goo Goo Dolls made their triumphant return to their hometown of Buffalo, NY (Darien Lake is about 20 miles East of Buffalo) last Saturday evening. This show was a one-off from their extremely successful current co-headlining tour with Matchbox Twenty. The crowd of approximately 8,000 was in a party mood right from the start on this perfect, sunny summer day. Many tailgated in the parking lot prior to the show, with pop-up tents and beer pong tables set up. It was surprising to see so many younger college-age adults in the crowd. It a true testament to the Goo Goo Dolls’ ability to remain relevant, 18 years after their first major hit, "Name," dominated the air waves in 1995.

Monster Truck - The Waiting Room, Buffalo, NY 08/15/2013

Review/photos by Mike "Suicide" Santoro

Buffalo, NY -I grew up on the US/ Canadian border, and grew up listening to Canadian bands. Canada gets a bad rap for their music in the states, i.e. The BareNaked Ladies, Nickelback, Bryan Adams, Justin Bieber, and some of others that I will leave nameless. The fact is, Canada also has a long list of incredible bands that more than make up for that cesspool of examples. Monster Truck could single-handedly make up for every shitty band that ever came from the great white north.

Concert review - Bret Michaels - Braun's Concert Cove, Akron, NY - 08/16/2013  

Review by John Jeffrey, Photos by Diana MacDonald

Akron, NY - Being a lifelong KISS fan, I never thought I would see and artist shrewder about their merchandising until I went to go see the Bret Michaels (Solo) Band on Friday night at Braun’s Concert Cove. While the stage announcer was offering the crowd the opportunity to buy everything from Bret’s stage clothes, to his stage-played guitar, to the chance of a lifetime to meet Bret Michaels for a mere $200, (and I swear there was some mention of them literally auctioning off the keyboard player for the night), I couldn’t tell if I was at a concert, or a gathering for a snake-oil salesman.
