Around Town: Something for everyone

Ate too much Moe's? Burn it off at an EDM show or while rocking out to Led Zeppelin


The Spectrum staff members made their choices for fun things to do in Buffalo this weekend – what will you do?

For the partier:

Put on those furry boots, colorful tutus and sequin eye makeup because EDM DJ RL Grime is performing Saturday, Nov. 8 at the Waiting Room at 8 p.m. and Rusko, an English dubstep producer and DJ, will take the stage the same night at Town Ballroom at 8 p.m.

For the intellectual:

Canadian translator and poet Erin Moure will give a poetry reading and lead a discussion at the Western New York Book Arts Center, (WNYBAC) 468 Washington St. in Buffalo at 7 p.m. The WNYBAC is an educational non-profit organization that has a letterpress, screen-printing studio, gallery and working museum. You can peruse the handmade cards, postcards and posters as well as the small library of books on book arts.

For the athletic type:

Catch the Buffalo Bills play the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Nov. 9, 1 p.m., at The Ralph.

For those staying on campus, the Buffalo women’s soccer team plays Ball State Friday in the MAC Tournament semifinals, 4 p.m., at UB Stadium. If the Bulls win, they’ll compete in the MAC Championship Sunday at UB Stadium. Games are free for undergrads and are streamed through UB Athletics’ website.

If you haven’t taken the trip downtown to check out the sparkly new HarborCenter, the brain-child of Terry and Kim Pegula, ECC men’s hockey plays Hudson Valley Saturday, Nov. 8 and Sunday, Nov. 9 at 7:25 p.m.

For the artsy type:

The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra (BPO) is performing the music of Led Zeppelin Friday, Nov. 7 at 8 p.m. Brent Havens leads the BPO with the vocals of Randy Jackson as they pay homage to one of the greatest classic rocks bands of all time.

If you’ve finished Sherlock on Netflix but still want some deduction in your life, the Screening Room is having a Sherlock Holmes Double Feature Saturday, Nov. 8 at 7 p.m. You can catch the Hounds of Baskervilles and Dressed to Kill for only $6.
