    Carnival vibe enhances Hard Rock series

    From the Buffalo News:

    Perhaps more than any other free, outdoor concert series in Western New York, Hard Rock Rocks Old Falls Street is presented as a community event more than just a big concert with basic concessions.

    Saturday night, the two blocks of Old Falls Street were filled with puppeteers, in-your-face mimes, vendors and even Hard Rock’s in-house Bulgarian breakdancing twins. There also was a crew from Niagara Arts and Cultural Center working the crowd to raffle a guitar donated by Generations Music and autographed by the headlining performers – veteran Canadian rockers Sloan. And, true to form of a tourism community, the guitar was won by a Californian.

    What the streets lacked, however, was a huge crowd. The third installment of the six-week series saw a significant dip in attendance since classic rock retreads The Guess Who opened.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Before she got the party started Saturday night, pop star Pink had her eye on Niagara Falls.

    “It’s my second time here,” said one of the top-selling female singers of the past decade. “I went on the Maid of the Mist last time. I was considering the barrel this time.”

    With hits like So What and Trouble, the 30-year-old Pink — real name, Alecia Moore — was in town for the grand opening of husband Carey Hart’s first Canadian location of his Hart & Huntington Tattoo Co. chain. The couple were greeted by hundreds of fans gathered at a VIP reception at Margaritaville.
