Well the leaves are a changing and you all are a grammin’. And that’s the way uh huh uh huh we like it! Please keep tagging your photos with #RiseBFLO and we’ll take the cream of the crop top six and send them over to The Public. Once a month, the top three of those submissions will be chosen to make it into their print edition. Catch the top 20-30 ‘grams from last week below.

Every week, we invite a local small business, non-profit, artist, or advocacy group to DJ this Friday blog party of ours. This week, you’ll hear from Rich Casey of Rust Belt Barbering & Salon Co. Check out their musical selections, their story, and their work below.

What’s up Buffalo? Rust Belt Barbering & Salon Co brings you a barbershop/salon like no other in the area. We have an award winning staff that are eager to please, and fun to work with. Always a Master Barber on staff, and a Color Specialist for the women. If you are not looking to get services from us at the moment we encourage you to at least drop in, see the shop, and strike up conversation. Look forward to meeting you, and having you become part of the Rust Belt Family, we know you’ll find your home for all your grooming needs/wants.

Before we head into the instagram round up, please remember that this blog party is not only about featuring incredible photography each week. It’s also about our DJ’s. We don’t cover Buffalo’s largest property owners, or the corporations that are here because of the tax breaks they received. We cover the people who make Buffalo great by working their asses off, doing something unique and meaningful. We want to cover you too, so reach out to us at risecollaborative@gmail.com.
On with the show!
