RAQ Show Postponed (1/30)

Tonight's RAQ show at Club Infinity POSTPONED Until March 15

A note from RAQ:

Dear Fans,

We are very sad to say that we were well on our way to Williamsville tonight to rock out Club Infinity and we got the call from the club owner. Apparently there is 65 mph winds and snow in the area and all the schools have closed as well as most businesses. As you know, we don't mind playing in crazy conditions, but the venue has lost all power additionally 55,000 homes in the immediate area are without power. The power company said there is NO GUARANTEE that power will be on before tomorrow afternoon. Due to this problem, we are going to have to reschedule the show until March 15th, 2008. Refunds are available at your point of purchase, or your tickets can be kept and will be honored at the new gig at Club Infinity.

The new show at Club Infinity for March 15 is going to be a great one. This is now a Saturday night gig and we look forward to bringing the live RAQ high performance rock & roll back to the Buffalo area.

Stay tuned to www.raqmusic.com for more info and details. Thanks for supporting us and understanding that mother nature does rule the world.

The venue would like to apologize to each of you. This is completely out of their control and both their management and RAQ's management have been working to try and fix this since 8 a.m. this morning. But we have been able to reschedule to March 15, so hopefully everyone can still get a chance to catch this show.

Our deepest apologies to all our fans that were planning on attending the show tonight. Without your support we would never survive things like this. We hope to see you all at Club Infinity on March 15, 2008.


Including Dates along the East Coast and appearances at Langerado and Green Apple Music Festivals

Burlington, VT's high performance rock and roll act RAQ announces initial spring tour dates for 2008, in support of the band's latest album, RAQ Live Vol. 2. The album was recorded live at the Orange Peel in Asheville, NC on Halloween Night, 2007, and was released on New Years eve at the Bijou Theatre. Highlights of the tour include a much anticipated return to New York City - where the band has repeatedly sold out venues such as the Highline Ballroom, Bowery Ballroom and B.B. King's Blues Club - for a two night run at the Blender Theatre at Gramercy, during the Green Apple Music Festival. The Pnuma Trio will be supporting RAQ for both nights. The tour also features stops at the Langerado Music Festival, The State Theater (Falls Church, VA), Visulite Theatre (Charlotte, NC) and many more dates this spring throughout the east coast.

Used to be Shadraq! and they know where the midwest is belive me. They caboozed twice last year and one of the shows was the highlight show of the year for me!! they fucking rip it! I dont know how anyone can compare Phish to Raq? Phish...Jam, Raq...Melt and I love them both! Absent from 10KLF last year, I hope they get a late night field stage. on another note I would love to smoke with these guys they seem like a bunch of jokers.

Too bad about the weather in Buffalo, I'm sure it would have gone on if possible, these guys played through a freakin' tornado in 06 in Iowa. They bring the heat night in/night out, quite frankly one of the hardest working bands in rock. Psyched for a serious freak-out in NYC come April!

Your music will never come close to the complexity of Raq's. Keep listening to Solja boy you elitist prick.

curtbraski I would have to say no 11 yr. olds could even touch what RAQ's doing music wise. And how is it mainstream? 90% plus of the people in the U.S. have never even heard of these guys. You're just pissed off at the world cause nobody likes you or your lame ass taste in music.

Haha if there's better local music in Boone then I would like to know who...... man whats up with all these young little boys that think they know everything and because of that I have to read negative comments from little kids that could just be going thru a phase!
