With less than 24 hours until the plug is pulled on Mohawk Place for good, many of Mohawk's local staples and up and coming national acts are going to need a new home. One of the venues in Buffalo that has already taken advantage of this opportunity is Duke's on Allen. The bar has transitioned away from their mostly electronic acts to a wide variety of genres, and in turn, has really taken off.
Tonight, the bar hosts one of their better bills yet as they welcome Rochester's electro pop act Joywave to Allen Town. We just recently named their track "True Grit" our favorite Rochester tune of last year, and if you haven't had the chance to see them yet, tonight is as good of a time as any. For the local part of tonight's bill, the Rochester group will be joined by electro dance duo Love Scenes, who just last week made the hour long trip east to join Joywave at the Bug Jar, and soaring throw back emo rockers All Blondes Go to Heaven.
Music kicks off tonight at 10pm with a cover of $5. Duke's resident house DJ Bearskinrug will keep the tunes going all night long following the final act.
