Slyfest 8 is going to be held at The Yard at Rock Harbor in Black Rock.  Admission is $10 and all proceeds go to help Slyboots relocate permanently to Buffalo.

We’ll be there and serving on Sunday (Sept 22) only and it’s going to be a blast!  Make sure to ride your bike!  It’s great exercise, finding parking sucks, you’ll look cool and if you use the GO Buffalo Bike valet…. your FIRST BEER IS FREE!

Here’s more information about the event from 464 Gallery’s website:

Rejuvenating silent film classics with live music, the Andrew Alden Ensemble brings an exciting new score to the iconic Nosferatu.

F.W.’s Murnau’s German expressionist horror film is revered as one of the scariest Dracula adaptations ever made. The film was shot in the Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania during the early days of film.

The new score by the Andrew Alden Ensemble compliments the horror of the film, and the classic story of Dracula with the sensibilities of classical chamber music and the distinct edge of rock. The music–featuring piano, strings, synthesizers, percussion and electric guitar–will be performed in person during the showing of the film, giving audiences a new experience of this memorable classic.
