Pipe Dragon Memorial Expo, Featuring Lubsfest 2018

The 6th (nearly) annual homage to the legendary, late, lamented late-80s underground venue, this year with a tribute to one of its regulars. On Aug 3, 1998 the Buffalo Music Scene lost Eric Lubsdorf, lead guitarist of Mystic Eyes, 60s-style garage combo, who had recorded for BOMP, Get Hip, ROIR Records and other labels. To celebrate his life and his presence on the Pipedragon scene and other venues, we have organized a rockin' celebration in his honor. Artists that worked with Eric will be playing, such as the first area appearance in twenty years of Mystic Eyes, who will be playing material written by Eric and other hits of theirs. Also playing will be a new combo of Cathy Carfagna and Dave Meinzer (with Bob Kozak and Patrick Heyden) playing Byrds material (Eric's favorite) and other selections. Eric replaced Dave Meinzer in Mystic Eyes. Also appearing will be the Irving Klaws who are preparing some special numbers for this show, and always bring the house down. The Good will be playing and will have a special segment honoring the legendary band the Wad, with an appearance by Joe from The Wad. Buffalo's legendary art rockers, The Vores, will be playing and might be playing some material that was featured in the 2017 film, "Crash Pad" with Christina Applegate. Buffalo's poet laureate, Bill Nehill will also be dazzling the crowd with his fantastic wonderful songs. To round out the evening, and keeping with the free-wheeling nature of the Pipe Dragon, will be appearances by the multi-talented Bad Ronald, Japanese indie rock trio The Molice, sparkly glam disco trio Sparkle Star Dream Survival, angular dream fuzz from Manic State, and experimental electronica from Imaginary Number. $5 suggested admission, with a portion of the procedes going to the American Cancer Society.
