Artvoice Presents: Exile on Allen Street

Artvoice Presents: Exile on Allen Street

Saturday, June 18

Keith Richards once said: “You’ve got the sun, you’ve got the moon, and you’ve got the Rolling Stones.” This couldn’t be truer for the bands in this year’s version of Exile on Allen Street, a tribute to the Rolling Stones. Some of Buffalo’s most talented bands come together for this event—for a few, only this one time each year—to choose their favorite Stones tunes and show their love for Mick, Keith, Charlie, and Ronnie. This year’s performers include the Jim Crean Band, 2nd Time Around, Fred Mann’s Curve, the Trend, the Ignitors, Dead Flowers, the Squints featuring Tory Arena, No Apologies, the Travesties, and the Theresa Quinn Band playing all of the classics from the Rolling Stones extensive catalogue, which includes over 1,000 songs and dates back to 1963. From “Under My Thumb” to “Sympathy For The Devil” and “Satisfaction” to “Gimmie Shelter,” no hit will be left behind. There will also be solo performances in the front room by Chances R, Doc Licata, and Michael Abbatoy between sets. Let’s spend the night together at Nietzsche’s this Saturday (June 18). —cory perla
