One of the greatest things about summertime in the Buffalo area is the abundance of free outdoor live shows. It's an embarassment of riches to be able to go see Peter Frampton one night (Free, Tuesday http://www.artpark.net/) and the next night Umphree's Mcgee (free Wednesday) and then Lowest of the low (free, thursday http://www.buffaloplace.com/thursday-at-the-square). This is just one week, and pretty much every week during the summer is like this. Well last night i went to see Chicago based Umphree's, and boy, it was worth every second of being there. They put on an absolute clinic in guitar and drum work, and had the crowd unable to even catch our breaths. Highly recommended.
