This frankly astounding year of live music in Buffalo continues tonight at the Town Ballroom when The Black Angels return to Buffalo, with Night Beats in support. Austin's Black Angels made a hell of an impression when they played the Tralf a few years ago on the Dropout Boogie Tour with Black Mountain thanks to their mesmerizing sound, excellent 60's American psychedelia (think The Doors, Velvets, The Zombies, and Jefferson Airplane... all at once), and seriously fantastic light show. Night Beats, from Seattle will be opening the show with their intriguing psychedelic r&b influenced rock. Doors open at 7 PM, tickets are $22, and yes they are still available.
Yeah Buffalo, can we not have a repeat of Yeasayer? How could that happen for Yeasayer? And you were doing so good up to this point. Anyways, city of mine, here's your chance to redeem yourself. Hipster doofuses of Elmwood in particular... here's your chance to really redeem yourselves, and to not just pose but to actually make yourselves useful.
OK, I'm done. Black Angels. Killer show. Be there.
