Today marks the opening of the 10th annual Buffalo Infringement Festival
, by far the city's longest and most eclectic arts festival. For some background on the festival, read my preview of this year's events with some suggestions for major happenings to mark down on your calendar. And for more on the on the fascinating history of the festival, which began as a modest culture jam in Montreal and later blossomed in other cities, read my 2012 interview
with fest founder Donovan King.
