Quilt and Mutual Benefit Playing Mohawk Place

Psychedelic rockers Quilt pay a visit to Buffalo’s Mohawk Place on Saturday, September 24 in support of their fantastic new album, Plaza, released in February. The band formed while Anna Fox Rochinski and Shane Butler were attending the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in 2009, though they now call New York home. Through three albums, they have solidified to a quartet with John Andrews and Keven Lareau and honed their sound with what Pitchfork describes as “diligently crafted songs, savvy arrangement instincts, and a discreet, almost unassuming way of asserting their own voice while embracing influences.”

Mutual Benefit, the brainchild of Jordan Lee, is also touring behind a new record, Skip a Sinking Stone, released in May. His touring band rotates on a regular basis. The album is in fact shaped by collaborations with friends and recurring members of the band’s ever-changing cast: drummer Dillon Zahner, violinist Jake Falby, guitar by Mike Clifford, vocals from Lee’s sister Whitney, flute by Noah Klein (Cuddle Formation) and keys by Dan Goldberg (The Spookfish).

The show this Saturday night at the Mohawk Place will get going around 8 p.m. Tickets are $12 in advance or $14 at the door. Don’t miss this chance to see two superb national acts on the indie-rock scene Buffalo!
