Clown Around With Deer Tick At The Kessler Theater, Bounce Off Clouds With Tori Amos At The Irving Music Factory And Hit The L With Wiki At Club Dada.
Football season is a sacred time in America. The best tailgates of all sports, elaborate watch parties, people screaming at TV’s across the nation and beer. Lots of beer. It’s the kind of thing that gets people excited. Maybe even excited enough to streak across a field with thousands of people watching in the stands? (If you can manage to reach the grass before they drag you off to NFL jail.)
Nowadays, stadium security is over-the-top, so streaking incidents aren’t too common. But one Buffalo Bills super-fan managed to sneak on the field at this past Sunday’s home game against the New Orleans Saints.
To make things even more hilarious, and slightly embarrassed for his beloved team, is that he managed to run more yards than the entire team did the WHOLE GAME. And almost by double.
In 15 rushes, the Bills managed to gain 69 yards during their 47-10 loss to the Saints. The scores and stats along are devastating enough for any Buffalo fan, and to add the fact that the streaking man made a run over 100 yards, even slipping away from security in a cutback move that rivaled most pros, before he was dragged off the field is a little sad. I wouldn’t know whether to laugh or cry for my home team.
With the Tennessee Titans playing the Pittsburgh Steelers tonight, we can only hope for another epic moment like this, but it’s pretty unlikely. Here are some cool events tonight that won’t be as much of a disappointment.
Wiki at Club Dada
The 24-year-old from NYC is making a trip to the Dirty D riding his recent album release of No Mountains In Manhattan.

The group credits most of their success to Patrick “Wiki” Morales for his chaotic hip-hop and cut-up rhymes.
