Saturday 3 November 2012. 6 pm until ????
at Adam Mickiewicz Library and Dramatic Circle .
informally known as "The Polish Library" which is welcoming ethnic club on Buffalo's east side.
located at 612 Fillmore. GPS it, nerd---it's very close to the 33/Kensington Expressway Science Center exit. $5.
The Polish Library is an cool, multi room, separated smoky bar offering a wild selecting of Eastern Bloc Beers and a character not found in many places. The price is right, they will inevitably run out of it and it packs a punch. and you can enjoy a Poppe Shoppe™ cream soda after to enhance your hangover or replace the booze with altogether, if that's how you roll. The club was established in 1895 and is named after a national Polish Poet, activist and political writer. Active in Poland achieving independence, he wrote Lithuanian folk songs. Yes, I've read up on the man.
And let us not forget the mysterious, quietly crushing sounds of Ancients of Earth . AoE appeared on Warm Bath Label compilation 7" Buffalo Brutality last year but head towards spacey, sparse, quiet and beautiful instrumentals. An interesting band captured on tape by Mr. Ski Mask at his fabled and always improving Electric Pumpkin Patch Studio.
Hopefully, the preview was helpful--maybe you already know or maybe you're in a band. There are certainly some great bands milling around town right now who are NOT playing this show, but here's a chance to catch a good lot of them on one special night at one special place. Do it. Adam Mickiewicz would have wanted you to.
