Infringement picks: day four

A typical scene from the College Street Block Party, shot during the 2007 Infringement Festival. Robert Kirkham / The Buffalo News.

Yesterday's Infringement Festival was off the hook, with at least 58 separate performances and dozens of art installations running concurrently. Today, things are a little bit lighter (but only a little) on the Infringement scene. Check out today's schedule, and alos these picks for today's Infringement events not to be missed:

The 9th Annual College Street Block Party, which kicks off at 2 p.m, has become one of the most popular events during Infringement week in Buffalo. The party takes place in the middle of College Street where it meets Allen, and features a lineup of seven bands, includin the always popular Global Village Idiots and Ramforinkus.

In the Manny Fried Playhouse at 2 p.m. until 3 p.m., the Western New York Playwrights Alliance presents "10-20-30," three short plays by Melody Von Smith, Donna Hoke and Gary Earl Ross.

If you happen to be moseying down Elmwood Avenue this afternoon, you'll want to catch the avant-garde solo sax serenading of Steve Baczkowski, who'll be playing outside El Buen Amigo from 3 to 5 p.m.

"Taste This Voice," a glitch poetery performance from Geoffrey Peters, the man behind the popular one-man-band Shapes of States, gets going at 8:30 p.m. at Filigree's.

Aaron Water Piepszny, the wildly eclectic dancer whose style ranges from ballet to b-boying, performs his show "ThisIS: Dance/Being," in the Manny Fried Playhouse at 5 p.m.
