Every Time I Die is playing at Buffalo Riverworks Dec 10-11

December live music is best known for once-a-year holiday parties that serve as unofficial fan reunions. The biggest one is easily the annual Every Time I Die party – ‘Tid the Season. This year’s two-night holiday bash features hardcore veterans (Poison the Well), latin punk (Mariachi el Bronx), live wrestling and rap legend Ice T!

Speaking of hometown heroes and music legends, Benny the Butcher just signed to Def Jam and his first show back in the area is at The Rapids Theater.

As always, this is not a comprehensive list of live music to see throughout the area, but these are the absolute can’t miss shows happening in WNY this month. Friendly reminder, these shows may or may not be sold out as you read these words. Although rising COVID-19 numbers threaten to change the situation, there are currently a lot of good shows, so let’s keep it that way. Please be sure to follow all venue guidelines regarding proof of vaccination, COVID testing, masks, etc. Now get out there and enjoy some live music!
