Halloween Night Part 2 :: JTNY

Halloween Night Part 2 :: JTNY
Brothers Curry and Fluvanna Beachcomber have been throwing this monthly shingdig at Forte (our favorite downtown dining option) for nearly two years now, and still can't grok what their own secret formula is that keeps 'em coming back.

The big idea is to spin a different genre of music every 20 minutes or so (surprise!), just to keep things interesting. In one night the tunes can swing from Hot Pink Delorean to The Sweet to Little Feat to Vivian Girls to Afrika Bambaataa to Loretta Lynn to PiL to Junior Boys and there's no telling what tipsy Jamestonians will dance to after 1 am, but it's usually a hot mess. Add guest DJ Andrew Harrington and costumes to that ... yeah!

Free. 10 pm, FORTE, 114 East 3rd Street (716) 484-6063.

Thanksgiving Weekend :: JTNY
Posted September 25, 2009
Thanksgiving 2009 will mark the 5 YEAR anniversary of the AAAlliance's creation. We will be celebrating in style somewhere in our beautiful, historic hometown, with all of our closest friends.

We are currently working out details for the weekend, and have some space available for interested visual artists who will be in WNY on November 27-28 to party with us and display some work as part of our group showcase.

We also have a VERY LIMITED number of slots left for bands who want to get involved by donating some performance time in exchange for exposure, hugs, and maybe some gas money.

Anyone interested in participating or helping out in any way should contact Bill Thomas through facebook or email:

show details for the weekend are TBA.
