Tonight: Herd Fest Day 1

buffaBLOG is proud to launch the first day of events for this year’s Herd Fest. A lot of planning and curating went into crafting these shows and we are psyched to gather some of the most buzzed about local and regional acts for your viewing/listening pleasure. We encourage you to seek out bands you are not familiar with, and bounce around from venue to venue to get a real feel for what Western New York’s music scene is like in 2017.

Mohawk Place opens it doors at 7pm for a night that will please any music fan. Set to open are up-and-coming indie rock act Hundred Plus Club, scene staples dreambeaches, Ithaca buzzing emcee Sammus, and the unveiling of the new project God Save the Queen, a collaboration between DJ Mario Bee and Mic Excel. $7 cover.

NIetzsche’s also has a stacked line-up. Starting off the night will be whiskey folk act Rust Belt Brigade, followed by a stripped down set from one-woman grunge act Stress Dolls, alternating back to the front for raw garage rock act Wren Williams and Son of Luther. Following the Sons is Albany indie-pop act Cannon the Brave, with a set by soulful loopmaster Ryan Howze and slacker core band Award Show. Doors at 8pm with a $5 cover.

There will be a small amount of all-access tickets available for pick-up at Mohawk Place starting at 7pm. If you are going with this option, we suggest buying in advance as there are less than 50 tickets left total. See you there!
