Exile on Allen Street: A Tribute to the Rolling Stones

Exile on Allen Street: A Tribute to the Rolling Stones

Saturday, June 16

“While we are living this life, what’s with the whole speculation about the next one? It’ll either be there or it won’t,” said the Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards in an interview with Hunter S. Thompson in 1993. Thompson’s response: “There are a lot of people out there who consider that you are already in the next world.” Maybe Keith has always had one foot in the astral plane. Maybe this is the reason why he rose to be such a god of rock and roll and a person who deserves a tribute every so often. In Buffalo, we pay tribute to the gods of rock each year with Artvoice’s annual Exile on Allen Street tribute to the Rolling Stones. This year will be no different when over 20 musical acts descend upon Nietzsche’s on Saturday (June 16) to perform at the altar of Keith and Mick. As always the line up is a mix of new-comers, veteran bands, and acts that come together just once a year specifically for this event. Some veteran bands performing again this year include Charr Savage and RiffRaffDead Flowers2nd Time Around, and Chances R while new comers to the event like Pete SorkinAutopunch, and Concubine will try out their licks on the Stones’ chops. Come out and give praise to the gods of rock!. —cory perla
