Steve Earle Tribute Night

Back in 1955, one Stephen Fain Earle landed on this orb and in no time took to the music of Texas and beyond. Barely out of his teens, Steve, guitar on the ready, was kickin around honky tonks and taverns with his mentors Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark. He made a splash of his own in 1986 with the album Guitar Town and, besides his drug fueled 4 year “hiatus”, hasn’t stopped since, recording some 16 studio albums, winning three Grammies, while combining rock, country, folk and even blues, Celtic, bluegrass and gospel influences. He’s railed against the Nashville establishment, country radio, and anyone else who would try to put his music in a genre-specific box, while also battling drug addiction, the criminal justice system, right wing politics and more than a few ex-wives.

But the songs always won out. And that is what we will be celebrating on Saturday November 12 at the mighty Sportsmens Tavern. Some of Buffalo’s best will be taking on Earle’s voluminous catalog of music in this always satisfying annual tribute.

Artists include many friends of the Sportsmens Americana Music Foundation McCarthyizm, Flatbed, Leroy Townes, Jim Whitford & Cathy Carfagna, Dee Adams, Ten Cent Howl, Shaky Stage and Chris Jones of Skiffle Minstrels.

This is a great opportunity to celebrate one of most influential and prolific singer-songwriters of our time.

The Proceeds of show will benefit The Sports Americana Foundation and Friends of Night People. Join us!

Fall Back to Sporties

McCarthyizm at Sportsmens Tavern

McCarthyizm at Sportsmens Tavern

Fall is here, and the autumn air is slowly crackin’ thru the beautiful summer weather that has so dominated our lovely burg, which so desperately tries to hold on for one more month…week…day.

And as we ponder the inevitable conclusion of this perennial struggle, a glimmer of hope shines thru. Fore after a month off from the 1st (and dare I say greatest) Thursday of the month at the vaunted Sportsmens Tavern, McCarthyizm returns to the hallowed boards of the greatest stage in Buffalo. Yes indeed folks, let’s celebrate the changing of the seasons by awakening and stirring the spirit that equally moves both the climate of planets and the passion of man!

Or just come in and have a beer. Either way, we’ll see on Thursday November 3, 7:00 – 10:00 pm.
