Canalside concert series kicks off tonight with The Hold Steady

Night & Day — Perhaps your last chance ever to see The Rolling Stones in this part of the country takes place in Toronto this evening. The Stones and Toronto have a storied history and tonight’s show may be the final chapter for the band and one of their favorite cities to perform in. It will be a great show — if you can afford the ticket.

Tonight is the first night of Buffalo’s free “Thursday at Canalside” series. The show features The Hold Steady with Hollerado and Johnny Nobody. I saw Hollerado last year in Lockport and they are a really fun band live, I highly recommend you get to the show early enough to catch them.

Also going on this weekend there is an eclectic mix of music, including a free show featuring a legendary bassist in North Tonawanda, a slide legend in Niagara Falls U.S.A and a legendary Canadian rock group from the 1970s over the border in Niagara Falls Canada.

Tomorrow night an up and coming band out of New Orleans is playing The Tralf, the band is named Royal Teeth, and I like their music a lot better than their band name. They are a young indie pop band whose current claim to fame was a spot on CNN’s website where they performed a special session.

Royal Teeth’s debut album doesn’t come out until August so you can take a gamble that the band will hit the big time and catch them while they are in a smaller club. By all appearances, it looks like they have a solid promotional effort behind their forthcoming album, and that means they should be generating a buzz later this year.

On Saturday, Chilliwack performs at the Niagara Fallsview Casino. The band has been around since the 1970s. One of the great things about living in Western New York is that we have been exposed to some great Canadian bands over the years that are unknown in most parts of the United States. Chilliwack falls squarely in that category. Their best-known songs are “I Believe,” “Fly at Night,” and “Lonesome Mary.”
