Hello out there! Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather... seems that Summer may have actually made it to Western New York this year after all (better late than never I guess). Anyway, we've got a few announcements to make on some upcoming shows and then we'll let you get back to the beers and bar-b-que. This Friday, June 27th, Kosmic will be appearing at Merlin's Pub. Merlin's Pub is located at 727 Elmwood Avenue in Buffalo, NY (right at the corner of Elmwood Ave. and Breckenridge St., a block north of West Ferry). Kosmic is scheduled to perform two sets beginning around 10:30 PM. For more info. or directions please contact Merlin's at (716) 883-7964 or check out our website. Kosmic is VERY excited to announce that this Sunday, June 29th, they will be performing a FREE, afternoon long, outdoors show on the patio of Frizzy's Bar & Grill as part of the Artvoice Street Festival. Kosmic plans on performing two to three sets beginning around 2:30 PM. Frizzy's is located at 140 Allen Street, in the historic Allentown section of Buffalo, NY (about a block or two east of the intersection of Elmwood and Allen). For those of you that don't know, the Artvoice Street Festival is an annual day long celebration of music, dance, food, beverage, arts, and crafts hosted by the people behind the weekly Artvoice newspaper. Allen St. will be closed down from noon until 8:00 PM and there will be a number of bands performing at bars along Allen, Elmwood, and Delaware with other bands playing from street stages. For more info. or directions, as well as a listing of other participating performers, check out this week's Artvoice or call Frizzy's at (716) 883-5077. We'd also like to prep you for a great show coming next week, Thursday, July 3rd, at Nietzsche's. Kosmic will be setting the stage for Buffalo rockers, The Feast, with a 90 minute set beginning at 9:00 PM, right after the Thursday at the Square festivities. More info. and directions on this show soon... in the meantime check out The Feast at www.thefeast.freehosting.net. Please, please, please don't forget about the 10th Annual Blind Baby's Holiday which is set for July 25th, 26th, and 27th.
