This weekend, Nashville (by way of Mississippi) rockers The Weeks will be taking over Mercy Lounge for a two-night stand, featuring two different fantastic local and regional openers each night. Can you think of a better way to spend your last weekend before the holidays kick into high-gear? We can’t. Check out the schedule below:
All week long, we’re celebrating The Weeks’ Week, where we’ll tell you more about a different great act from the lineup each day. Yesterday, we kicked things off with first night opener Chrome Pony. Today, we’ll be filling you in on the Bowling Green group kicking off the show on night two, BUFFALO RODEO. If you like what you hear, be sure to snag your tickets. In addition to single nights, which cost just $12, weekend passes are available for $20. Both nights are 18+, and begin at 9 p.m., with doors at 8.
After the jump, get to know Buffalo Rodeo:
Hailing from right up the road in Bowling Green, K.Y., indie rock outfit Buffalo Rodeo seemingly came out of nowhere to land on our radar in a major way in recent months. After initially coming to our attention last fall, as part of the lineup for the Starry Nights Festival on their home turf, BR have helped our friends release records, brought down the house at DIY shows, and are even alumnis of our fave local fest, East Nashville Underground. We’ve had the pleasure of catching the group on several occasions, so we speak from experience when we say, this is one band definitely worth showing up early for (and a perfect compliment to the rest of their bill).
Buffalo Rodeo are an indie rock band through and through, but also pull influence from prog-rock and alternative, with a flair for ambience. The group’s self-released catalogue dates all the way back to 2011 (if not earlier), but it’s their latest EP, Home Videos, that really caught our attention in a major way. Supported by lead single “Treehouse” (listen below), Home Videos is a fun, energetic, indie romp of a record, and provides a perfect glimpse into the unstoppable force of a band Buffalo Rodeo are well on their way to becoming. We know where we’re going to be on Saturday night.
