Nietzsche's is one of Buffalo's truly legendary venues not only because it is a linchpin in the local scene but because of its welcoming reputation among national and regional touring acts. And because of its history as the jumping-off point for many local musicians who have moved on to bigger things; Ani DiFranco is the most famous, but by no means the only of these. Nietzsche's is a fixture in Allentown, host to parties, benefits, local characters, and night after night after night of live music.The club's owner, Joe Rubino, opened his doors nearly 25 years ago. He was a partner in a long-gone West Seneca club called Frodo's but was looking for a new venture. His accountant, a high school friend, told him about a cavernous joint in Allentown that was up for sale.
