Rhubarb sucks. At least that’s what their website “rhubarbsucks.com” would seem to indicate. However, the music of Rhubarb, self-described as “twisted psychedelic funk”, that also contains elements of surf rock, grunge, jazz and more, most certainly is the polar opposite of suck. The band’s been on the Buffalo music scene for 15 years now, most recently supporting their 2013 release Shoot Yer Body Baby. Buffalo fans are no doubt psyched about this upcoming show, not only due to the excellence of the ‘barb, but also due to the killer support coming along for the ride.
Rochester’s Ocupanther, birthed in 2011 from elements of the now defunct Pia Mater, plays their own brand of psychedelia and electronica-infused funky rock and roll. Fresh out of studio sessions for their upcoming new 3rd album, Ocupanther will likely feature a mix of brand new material and classics for the Nietzsche’s faithful. Special guest sit ins are always a possibility as well.
Along for the ride up front is the brand new University of Buffalo jam club birthed Brown Sugar. Debuting a few weeks back for the brilliant Aqueous “mystery artist” themed night, this trio brought the jams more like it was their 50th show much to the delight of onlookers.
Music starts promptly at 10PM and is a mere 5$. Put down your smart phones, lock up the cable remote, and come dance. It won’t suck, we promise!
