Saturday, March 17
St. Patrick’s Day weekend is always an infamous one in Buffalo. If you’re looking to do more than just drink this weekend, then the Shamrock Shakedown might just be your godsend. Featuring dozens of DJs including veteran clubbers John Acquaviva and Anthony Attalla, every local DJ worth his weight in wax, live bands, and contests spread over multiple genre specific rooms, the Shamrock Shakedown should leave a lasting imprint on the east side’s Dnipro Ukrainian Cultural Center on Saturday (March 17). Headliners John Acquaviva and Anthony Attalla are no new comers to raves like this one. Since the dawn of rave, Acquaviva has taken his techno and tech house beats worldwide, constantly touring and releasing new music on his Definitive Recordings label. Attalla on the other hand, has spent the last two years making a name for himself as one of the top up and coming DJs in Detroit and beyond, charting over 30 Top 100 tracks on Beatport.com. In addition local DJs like Medison, 3PO, Arehouse, HXLY, Swagglerock and many, many more will keep the party going all night. If you do end up surviving until last call at 5am, don’t worry, you’ll get home safe with the free taxi service available at the event. For more information go to shamrockshakedown.co.cc. —cory perla
