Silo City Alive
[MUSIC FESTIVAL] You want Americana? How about this: A music and art festival the weekend before the Fourth of July, in the shadows of Buffalo’s iconic grain elevators, with a lineup of roots music artists assembled by the folks at the Sportsmens Americana Music Foundation. Silo City Live happens next Sunday, July 2 at Silo City, with two stages featuring music by Leroy Townes, Black Rock Zydeco, Ten Cent Howl, Shaky Stage, Mr. Conrad, the Brothers Blue, the Legendary Longjohns, and Tyler Westcott. Plus local artists will produce interactive pieces on-site, and Buffalo Aerial Dance Company will perform aerial ballet. GoBike Buffalo and Slow Roll will offer a bike tour of the city that ends at the silos in time for the festival’s 2pm start. Other sponsors include Flying Bison Brewery and Buffalo’s Best Grill, along with Silo City itself, of course. Tickets are just $7, kids get in free, and proceeds benefit the foundation, which Sportsmens Tavern owner Duane Hall started to support and promote the music he loves. It’ll be a beautiful day by the river.
