Win Tickets to Avi Buffalo w/ The Head and the Heart!Posted by Nikki Benson
“What’s in it for/ someone with nothing to do/what’s in it for me/woouuhhhooooooh”. These words ring loud and clear across the ever-expanding Avi Buffalo fanbase. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Avi Buffalo twice and both times they lit up the room with their young energy, anthemic singalongs, and warm music. It’s easy to compare Avi Buffalo to their Sub Pop label-mates The Shins, with both bands having similar falsetto vocals and uplifting indie-rock vibes. I’m sure Avi Buffalo take no offense to such a comparison, but on their own they still bring something new, fresh, and unique to the music scene. Avi Buffalo brings indie-rock back to the basics, and they do it with romance and style.
If you choose to spend your Tuesday evening with Avi Buffalo on 11/02, at the very least you’ll end the night with a smile on your face. But who knows? You might end up being inspired to go back to the basics, put on some rose colored glasses, and realize that life is what you make it–have some fun!
The Head and the Heart are on just before Avi Buffalo, so show up early. The Head and the Heart are blowing up nationwide, with everyone wanting to get a piece of the action. I think it’s actually becoming trendy to be obsessed with The Head and the Heart. They’re the new white-rimmed sunglasses, scarf, and skinny jeans. Did you know they are going on tour with Dr. Dog in January? Goodnight nurse, this group is getting buckwild. Here’s a few words Sam Boyd had to say on The Head and the Heart:
The Head and the Heart are riding all kinds of feel-good waves right now in Seattle, hot off their Block Party and KEXP at the Mural performances, getting tons of airplay on KEXP, not to mention a prestigious #1 slot at Sonic Boom’s Ballard location, for their recent self-titled release. They’ve got charismatic piano hooks and the pleasant harmonies to match, with just enough folk in the chamber arrangements to complicate the infectious sound. The Head & The Heart sound like Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes and Grand Hallway (who are headlining tonight), and they’ve been SSG favorites for quite a while.
