Concert Review + Photos: B. Dolan @ Duke’s Bohemian Grove
By Lauren Garbutt -

It was a cold and blustery night in downtown Buffalo, when indie-rapper B. Dolan of Strange Famous Records hit the stage at Duke’s Bohemian Grove Bar (affectionately referred to as DBGB’s) on Saturday night. The venue was cozy, dark, small and intimate, and despite the cold, a sizeable crowd showed up for Dolan’s appearance which promised the feature of a live backing band.

Dolan took to the stage around 12:30am, without the back up band that was originally promised, but with good reason. He explained that one of his bandmates whom suffers from celiac disease had unfortunately consumed a salad with croutons that nearly killed him. His humour about the situation and the fact that he promised to play an extended set as compensation led to no disappointed fans, as Dolan was more than capable of holding his own alone on stage, with only the help of a DJ playing his beats.

Dolan opened his set with “Still Here”, King Bee”, and fan favourite, “Kitchen Sink”, and continued his performance that mainly comprised of his regular material such as “Film the Police” and “Which Side”, but with some added treats like a spoken word piece about ODB (Who killed Russell Jones?), an introduction to his new poem he is writing about the one and only Bill Murray, and a dance-off with a crowd member to LL Cool J’s “You Can’t Dance”.

Toward the end of a great set, Dolan did a “fake encore”, pretending to hide behind a beam on the side of the stage to the laughter of the audience. Dolan did a great job of entertaining and interacting with the crowd throughout the entire duration of the performance, and proved that indie hip-hop is alive and well.
