If you like your music hard, fast and loud, then Artpark was the place to be on Tuesday. Megadeth unleashed an assault that the beautiful outdoor stage of Artpark had never seen before. Playing one of just a handful North American dates this summer, they opened with one of their most well known songs with “Hangar 18″ as they came out blistering as they tore on to the stage.

The Little Black Dress tour touched down in Lewiston, NY at the Artpark outdoor amphitheater Wednesday evening.

It was clear on Wednesday night when Justin Timberlake took the stage at the First Niagara Center, Buffalo had been waiting a long time for this concert. Earlier this year Justin had to postpone his Buffalo show due to scheduling conflicts. The show was well worth the wait, even the extra forty minutes it took for him to come on stage.

In 2011 I attended what turned out to be the final Thursday at the Square concert at Lafayette Square. Grace Potter & the Nocturnals headlined but I was there early enough to see the band right before them, Fitz and the Tantrums. The two bands combined to produce a show that was the best free show I have ever seen. Continue reading

When it was announced way back in February that Styx, Foreigner and Don Felder were going to team up for a huge summer tour it was quite staggering to see the amassed sales total of their music catalogs. Styx and Foreigner certainly are no strangers to each other as they have toured in the past, but by adding an amazing talent like Don Felder, the former Eagle to the bill was the icing on the cake.

Despite some heavy downpours throughout the day, classic rock band Boston managed to get the show in. The weather cleared up just in time for the band to complete their soundcheck. Local favorites Bruce Wojick & The Struggle got the crowd warmed up. The venue filled up very nicely by the time Boston took the stage as the sold-out crowd didn’t let mother nature alter their plans. Continue reading
