In this week’s show Pete talks with comedian and HBO talk show host Bill Maher, who’s performing at Shea’s Performing Arts Center this weekend. Maher talks about his roots in standup comedy, and the politically correct culture we live in. We also have a ticket give away to his show! Also in the show Cindy Batista talks about her project to bring a hospitality house to families with loved ones staying at Mercy Hospital, Willard Brooks talks about the Buffalo craft beer bubble, and Artvoice BOOM Winners, Uncle Ben’s Remedy is in our music spotlight.
The 9th annual Artvoice Battle of Original Music (BOOM!) Grand Finale takes place tomorrow! In anticipation of tomorrow night’s show, we thought we’d share some clips from three of our prior winners. Catch these $5000-winning performances from Folkfaces, Randle and the Late Night Scandals, and The Tins.
Tomorrow’s show will feature Intent to Sell, Erica Wolfling, Luanjie, and Uncle Ben’s Remedy. It all takes place at The Tralf Music hall on Main St. downtown. The show starts at 8pm, it’s an 18+ event (w/ID), and is $7 at the door. Everyone through the door gets a vote – come on out for a night of local original music, hand picked over the course of six months by Artvoice readers, and have your say in who this year’s $5000 grand prize winner will be!
