Co-orchestrator Paul Blake said that his team is keeping busy keeping up with the growing number of acts, and the throngs of people that attend year after year.

“We here at Can You Dig It, inc.

Calvary Episcopal Church, 20 Milton Street at South Cayuga Road in Williamsville, will offer Ashes-to-Go from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm in the church parking lot drive-through on Ash Wednesday, February 26th. Calvary’s Rector, The Rev. Dr. Robert W. Harvey, assisted by members of the parish, will provide this service which has been offered for the past five years, growing to nearly 200 persons served last year. Although serving those whose busy schedules may not allow them time to attend church in a conventional way may seem unusual, the trend is appearing throughout the country, as people find new ways to remember and expand their faith in God. Father Harvey will also officiate at Holy Eucharist and Imposition of Ashes within the church at 7:00 am, 12:00 pm, and 7:00 pm. All are welcome to attend any of the services. For additional information, please call the church at (716) 634-4710.

About The Mattson 2: Mattson 2 are Jared and Jonathan Mattson, identical twins who have been collaborating almost literally from birth. They grew up in San Diego, CA, where in middle school they started playing music; decades later, they had earned Master’s degrees in Music from the University of California Irvine. They formed their psych-jazz group Mattson 2 in 2003, and released their first album, Introducing the Mattson 2, in 2009. Subsequent releases include collabs with pro skaters Ray Barbee, Tommy Guerrero, Farmer Dave (of Kurt Vile), and Money Mark (of Beastie Boys). Since then, they’ve released an album with Chaz Bear — 2017’s Star Stuff, recorded under the name Chaz Bundick Meets The Mattson 2 and which peaked at #1 on the Billboard contemporary jazz charts — and reinterpreted Coltrane’s legendary A Love Supreme which Jazz Times said “manages to hold Coltrane’s revered album in the highest esteem while absolutely shredding it to pieces.” Paradise, their 8th record, marks the first time that the brothers have added vocals. The album is a masterful piece of psych-jazz, conceptually elegant and thrilling it its execution.

Panel Discussion: Contemporary Culture, Contemporary Art February 28, 2020, 5:00-8:00 pm Part of M&T Fourth Friday @ TriMain Center Panelists: Jay Carrier, George Hughes, Jodi Lynn Maracle, and Sepideh Pourhang

This panel discussion will focus on the ways artists are influenced by the intersection of their cultural histories and contemporary experiences. Panelists include Jay Carrier, George Hughes, Jodi Lynn Maracle, and Sepideh Pourhang. This panel is taking place within Buffalo Arts Studio on Friday, February 28, 2020 from 5-8pm in tandem with Jay Carrier’s solo exhibition, “We Took Things with Us: A Collection of Recent Work”, on view at Buffalo Arts Studio from January 24-March 6, 2020.

Each of the panelists combine formal elements from their cultural heritage with mixed-media processes, producing artwork that is truly transnational. These artists ask the viewer to think across boundaries, challenging colonialism and its legacies. This discussion will also address the way(s) that artwork made by transnational artists is too often relegated to anthropologic sections of cultural institutions, suggesting that the art and artmakers exist only as relics of a “pre-American” past.

Green Buffalo Productions (GBP) continues to push boundaries in February 2020 with their first feature production, Liquidation. Written by local playwright, director, and dramaturg, Samantha Marchant, this play will make its world premiere at the Sugar City Arts Collaborative located at 1239 Niagara Street. As always for GBP, the piece will fully feature Western New York creatives.

Liquidation will be directed by Niagara University graduate, Nicholas Edwards. Nick returns to GBP after performing in their 2019 Spooky One Act Festival and 2019 spring feature production In Crazy Love. He is thrilled to take on the challenge of directing this experimental play about relationships with Samantha Marchant on board for nearly every rehearsal. He will be assisted by GBP veterans, Sarah Henderson (Assistant Director) and Sarah Emmerling (Stage Manager).

GBP Co-Founder Ellen Scherer is the lead producer for Liquidation. She says “I love this team! They are so dedicated to making Samantha’s vision come to life. I don’t think that just anyone could pull off Liquidation. Directing takes a lot of experimental work. Understanding the characters requires deep introspection. I am itching to see what the team brings to the stage.”

Tickets for the Liquidation are $25 per person and can be purchased online via Brown Paper Tickets at gbpliquidation.bpt.me. There will be four opportunities to see the show: Friday, February 28 at 7:00 pm, Saturday, February 29 at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm, and Sunday, March 1 at 2 pm. Doors open 30 minutes prior to start time.

Tickets will also be available for purchase at the door while they last. There will be items available for raffle; raffle tickets can be purchased via cash or Venmo. Seating is limited, so GBP strongly recommends buying tickets online.

This production is set in the round and has some interactive elements. The audience will be seated within the set. The play includes references to, or representations of, the following: drug and alcohol use, intimacy, sexual intercourse, implied masturbation, implied nudity, partial nudity, same-sex kissing, suicide, and abortion.

Friday, February 28th: TOOL Tribute Band SCHISM w/ Anger is a Gift (Rage Against The Machine Tribute)

About Tool Tribute Band SCHISM: Not many cover or tribute bands out there ever attempt to engage in the raw talent, mysticism, and magic that is TOOL. But if you talk to four brave souls from New York City (Angelo Rivera- Vocals; Sean Murray- Bass; Donald Pusateri- Drums; Keith Williams- Guitar). Their love and passion for this music led them to form SCHISM. New York City’s premier TOOL tribute band, the world’s first tribute to TOOL.

“We started this back in 2001, after seeing a TOOL show at Madison Square Garden. We simply loved the music and wanted to share it live with other TOOL minded fans” says SCHISM guitarist Keith Williams. “We’ve been a national touring act for over 10 years now. This isn’t something you tap your foot to, this is more of an interactive experience for the listener. These songs are compositional masterpieces, which will be studied for years to come”.

If you’ve never had the chance to see TOOL live, here’s your local opportunity. We invite you of the collective unconscious to share with us the experience of TOOL.

World’s first Tribute to Tool. World’s longest touring national tribute to Tool. The only Tool tribute to be listed on Tool’s websites.
