Early last fall, the Elmwood Village threw its inaugural Buffalo Porchfest. Sporting a pretty simple concept (you register your porch/balcony and a band plays on it), October’s event was nearly washed out after some nasty rain in the early morning hours. I hosted my own show and didn’t have power until about an hour before the band arrived. No matter. The rain held up and the fest was deemed a success. Porchfest will return for its spring installment next month on Saturday, May 17th. If you are a band/musician who wishes to play the fest, you can register here. If you want to donate your porch, you may register here. Keep an eye on Porchfest’s website the week leading up to the event for a full map of participating homes/apts and bands.
