Once again, no first Thursday at Sportsmens for McCarthyizm in February. Instead we’ve got the Saturday Night B-day Special show on February 13th! (Who’s b-day? hmmmm) Special guests the Hillary Capps Band from NYC will be opening at 8 pm. It’s gonna be an event, folks. Be there!
Another great year for Friends Helping “Friends”, the annual benefit for Friends of Night People hosted by McCarthyizm which took place on Saturday Dec 12 at the world famous Sportsmens Tavern. The Friends that joined McCarthyizm on stage were just amazing: Poor Ould Goat, Paul and Claire Weisenburger, Timbreland Whiskey Band, A Potter’s Field and the Rear View Ramblers. Just awesome, thank you! And a big Thank You to our sponsors Left Bank Restaurant and Kegworks! Families from the Amherst High School Varsity Baseball Team also kicked in a very nice donation. Thanks! Much appreciation also to Kim Miers for doing our poster for the event, musicians from the Steve Earle Tribute show who donated their earnings that night and also to everyone who donated baskets for the the silent auction, which was a big hit! And of course the Hall Family, owners of Sportsmens Tavern, who not only provide Western NY with a premier live music venue, but do so with such love and grace. They also made a very generous monetary donation to FoNP. Merci beau coup!
All told over $2,300 was raised for Friends of Night People, plus food and winter clothing! Those of you who could not make it, please help this great organization which does so much for the poor in Buffalo. www.friendsofnightpeople.org
Bad news is McCarthyizm will not be playing their 1st Thursday slot at Sportsmens Tavern in December. Good news is they WILL be at Sporto’s on Saturday December 12 for the Annual “Friends Helping Friends” benefit! Joining McCarthyizm will be A Potter’s Field, Poor Ould Goat, Timbreland Whiskey Band, Paul & Claire Weisenburger and the Rear View Ramblers. This is always the feel-good event of the year: folks in the holiday spirit, great line-up of music, Buffalo’s premier live music venue, an expanded silent auction of some great gift baskets. What else could you ask for? As always, all proceeds go to Friends of Night People. Be a FRIEND. Be THERE. And a BIG thank you to our event sponsors Keg Works and Left Bank Restaurant, and of course to Kim Miers for the great work on the poster!
