Our picks for the music fan in your life.
Tickets for Dr. Dog
$25, Town Ballroom, 681 S Main St., Buffalo
One of the better concerts coming through town post-Christmas is psychedelic rock band Dr. Dog. The band has played Buffalo a few times and never disappoint. Tickets to see Dr. Dog would be a great gift for a music lover of any age. They come to the Town Ballroom on Wednesday, March 9.
Montage of Heck Box Set
$149, Record Theatre, 3500 Main St., Buffalo
Montage of Heck is not a perfect documentary about Kurt Cobain, but the vinyl box set is damn near perfect if you’re a Nirvana completist. The set includes 31 “home-recorded” tracks, meaning rough drafts, recorded to cassette tape—the way Cobain probably recorded them. It comes complete with a full-color booklet and a jigsaw puzzle so you can literally put the pieces of Cobain’s life back together
$59, Allentown Music, 1113 Elmwood Ave., Buffalo
Bongo drums are great for musicians of all experience levels. Beginners can easily learn to keep a beat, and for seasoned musicians the portable instrument is a great addition to any musical arsenal. Allentown Music located on Elmwood Avenue has a pair for only $59.

Antique Hohner Accordion
$55 House of Jacob, 1453 Hertel Ave., Buffalo
We found this neat antique Hohner accordion at House of Jacob, which recently moved to a new location on Hertel Avenue. The owner says that it still works, but it would even look great just sitting on a book shelf.
