Artvoice Presents: Night Shift
11pm Allen St. Hardware Café (882-8843 /allenstreethardware.com) $3 until 12, $5 after
Revelry is a nice word. It means “lively and noisy festivities, especially when these involve drinking a large amount of alcohol.” If all goes according to plan, there will be plenty of revelry, and some great music, at the first edition of what we hope will be a new monthly dance party at Hardware we’re calling Night Shift. Artvoice is known for a bunch of key events each year. Our annual Mardi Gras parade went off without a hitch earlier this week; we run an annual battle of the bands—B.O.O.M., which is in progress right now—and we host perhaps one of Buffalo’s most divisive events, Best of Buffalo, each spring. Night Shift however will allow us to do what those events do not but that we do each week in this paper, which is curate a selection of artists and musicians who we believe deserve your attention. For this first attempt we’re going to start simple with a couple of Best of Buffalo winning DJs who are guaranteed to get you moving. Those DJs include Hardware mainstay, hip hop aficionado, and all around funky dude, DJ Cutler and Rick Jameson aka Seabass, half of Spooky Business; as well as hip hop selector Josh YourMoms. Perhaps next month we’ll feature a visual artist along with a new selection of DJs. Maybe after that an indie rock band. There are many possibilities, but most of all we hope that it is possible that you will join us for a night of revelry and dancing this Friday (March 7) at Allen Street Hardware.
