About Buffablog

buffaBLOG is a weblog (in recent, common parlance, “blog”) based in Buffalo, New York. Hence, the completely unexpected and creatively daring name of this website. We write about music. Buffalo music, primarily. National and international music, secondarily. Hypothetical and imaginary music, tertiarily. We cover all of the customary views: previews, reviews, interviews, overviews, purviews.

We’ll keep you suitably well-informed about recently released music and upcoming shows in the Buffalo area by local and national acts.

Your friends will say, “Hey how did you find out about that?” and you will say, “Oh, I just saw it on the Internet,” but by “the Internet,” you will (probably) mean buffaBLOG.

Nick Kivlen of Sunflower Bean
