From Louisville, Kentucky, hardcore noise punks Greyhaven delivers their full length debut Cult America with ten tracks of southern hardcore. A year in the making, bassist Johnny Muench describes the record: “We've gone in a bunch of different directions with the record so I hope that people are caught off guard by what they hear.” Since the album’s debut in 2014, the band released a new single “Blondie” in 2015 and have been touring the country with their southern, metal rock music.
“It’s big, loud and aggressive, but not stale. While the songs provided certainly have a bit of a classic hardcore foundation, I feel more of a rock n’ roll attitude. Cult America is impossible to ignore. If you are currently really into abrasive, loud music, this album is for you. If you were into really abrasive, loud music fifteen years ago, this album is for you.” – Never Nervous... See MoreSee Less
Intrepid Travelers are here to celebrate the coming of their second EP, "Everday Is Your Birthday," this summer with you! Joining the party will be good friends, Witty Tarbox! So get on down to Buffalo Iron Works on Thursday, June 29th to join in on the birthday fun!
18+ $7/$10 DOS
Founded in 2013 on friendship, fun, and a sense of freedom, Intrepid Travelers is a musical quartet from Buffalo, NY that defines itself through boundless improvisation and eclectic evolution. Treating each live show as a journey with the audience rather than a performance, Intrepid Travelers pride themselves on a form of focused, collective expression that showcases a medium where cerebral musicianship meets heartfelt, soulful songwriting.
Quickly building a following as an improvisational band that draws influence from the diverse catalog of American music, each show delves into the unknown, throwing aside setlists and traditional arrangements for explorations in all genres, from heavy roots in jazz-funk fusion, rock, bluegrass, to even classical and electronic music. Party music for the head and heart that also keeps the dance floor grooving.
Since 2015, “IT” has been busy both in the studio and out, with the release of second EP “Flash Drive in a Bottle”, as well as a live, in-studio video of the track “Conquistadors”, embarking on multiple national tours, and the inauguration of its family-run festival, “IT Fest”, all on its resume. Already breaking 100 shows in 2016, the young band has been on a meteoric rise like no other, and with the inclusion in national festivals such as Summer Camp Music Festival, Cobblestone Live, and Night Lights, people are beginning to notice. With the completion of only their third year, Intrepid Travelers are already continuing the great tradition of bringing people together, and do so with the same musical honesty and rawness of improvisation giants before.
"Improvisation does indeed play a role in Intrepid Travelers' sound, but so to do strong, sturdy and well-conceived songwriting, something in ample evidence on the "Rainbow Monkey?" EP"- Jeff Miers - The Buffalo News
" 'Intrepid' describes them well: they are fearless and resolute and own their musical style, which is melodious and placid, while improvisational rhythm, solid riffs, keys, and jamming keep it elevated. Fun, fantastical lyrics complete the feel of their live performance, demonstrative of their crafting abilities. I look forward to further exploration of Intrepid Travelers."- Mary Mistretta - UpstateLIVE... See MoreSee Less

“My best moe.down memory will always be opening moe.down 7, backing up my brother Michael on the main stage.”- Jim Loughlin
“To me, moe.down has always been a mix the best ‘laid back, friends and family, backyard throw downs.’ Musical and non-musician loved ones come from all over and as a result, we all have this special atmosphere where everything is better. Friends revel, everyone gets together with almost a singular communal purpose and the band reflects that onstage throughout the weekend. I look forward to having that back again this year and hopefully many more to come!
My favorite memories are of the amazing musicians that we get to share the stages with every year. Ha Ha The Moose, too.” - Chuck Garvey
“moe.down, for me, is a family event in many ways. My children have grown up there, and have made friends there. We look forward to it the same way one would look forward to a family reunion.”- Rob Derhak
Although the stages may have been dark and the ski lifts still over the past two summers, the moe.down discussions never stopped between moe. and Chuck Chao of Creative Concerts. The seventeen-year partnership knew it had something unique to offer when they threw their first moe.down in 2000, and the goal has always been to make each year more memorable than the last, while still retaining its intimate vibe.
The eclectic lineup of past moe.down performers includes: The Black Keys, Gary Clark, Jr., Cracker, TV On The Radio, Amos Lee, Ani DiFranco, Galactic, The Avett Brothers, Umphrey’s McGee, Grace Potter, Levon Helm w/Bob Weir, Cake, Ween, Perry Farrell's Satellite Party, The Roots and many more.
2017 will see moe.down returning to its roots. Originally conceived as a weekend reunion the band could host for their friends, family and musical cohorts, the festival will once again focus on moe. and the extended famoe.ly. moe.down 16 will keep all of your favorite moe.down pastimes, but try to add some mo' moe. and a little less stress.
New festival options this year will include layaway payment plans, and an enhanced VIP experience including downloads of every moe. set, golf cart escort upon arrival and a commemorative laminate.

Celebrating their debut release 'Bedtime Blazer' Wurliday will be at The Hollow on June 30 along with The Rechorduroys and Olivia Quillio!
Wurliday // Hailing from Albany, NY, brand new ensemble Wurliday brings together some of the most exciting, dynamic musicians in the live music scene for a lively injection of soul-funk goodness, direct to your ears. The latest brainchild of Albany own's guitarist/songwriter Justin Henricks (Beau Sasser’s Escape Plan/The Chronicles), and fronted by vocalist Arielle O’Keefe (Girl Blue) the group brings forth a new take on combining funk and soul music. Their latest release, ‘Bedtime Blazer’ was recorded and produced in the fall of 2016 by Alan Evans (Soulive) at his Iron Wax Studio in Millers Falls, MA.
The Rechorduroys // Wily band manager, Pony Dan helped a small town band achieve big time success when they released a Josie & The Pussycats-style pop song in 2017. The Troy, NY band, formerly known as "Ben Garrett & The Break-Up Kings," featuring Dan Wilson, August Sagehorn, and Raurri Jennings, became a sensation after their drummer broke his arm, and was replaced by nature enthusiast, Bryan Hogan, who injected something a bit different into their strange brew of psychedelia and shower rock. Ladies and gents, welcome to the stage, your new favorite family, The Rechorduroys!

Individually, the members of theSHIFT are highly sought-after musicians who’ve recorded and toured the world with music royalty. Together, John Shannon (vocals/guitar), MJ Lambert (drums) and Ben Geis (bass) craft earth-shattering, anthemic rock with vibrant depth and a forceful punch. The New York City powerhouse trio’s defiant sound is perfectly captured on its debut album 7th Direction, released on April 14, 2015. theSHIFT’s multi-layered riffs and heavy driven groove are in full effect with “Kobra”, the first single off of 7th Direction. The song received its world premiere with Loudwire. 7th Direction was recorded at Brooklyn’s Mission Sound and Manhattan’s JRock Studios and co-produced by Jamie Siegal (Taking Back Sunday, Mary J. Blidge, Santana). Referencing the Native American concept of directions, the track title further reflects a deeper meaning behind theSHIFT’s approach to music. “theSHIFT is about altering your consciousness through the sheer power of rock n’ roll,” declares Shannon. “Our lyrics don’t question the government, they question the nature of your reality.”
Having each attended the famed Berklee College of Music, theSHIFT comes from a wide-ranging music spectrum. Shannon has recorded and toured with top-national acts like John Mayer, Lauren Hill and Ben Harper, and also composed music for comedian Louis CK’s live specials and hit FX series, Louie. Lambert and Geis’ musical roots lie deep in the world of hip hop, having backed legends Big Daddy Kane and Slick Rick.
After a year and a half of non-stop touring and gathering diehard fans across the United States, theSHIFT’s song “Dreams” was mysteriously added to a mainstream rock radio station in Lima, Peru where the song went to #1 and soon became #5 of the year 2015 amongst Coldplay and Florence and the Machine. theSHIFT were the only independent band on the top 150 list. Shortly after this they were then noticed on YouTube by the legendary songwriter/producer and co-creator of the Woodstock Festival, Artie Kornfeld, who has taken them into the studio to begin work on their next album. theSHIFT is constantly on the road, bringing its vivacious rock n’ roll spirit to life onstage.
“The anthemic and vibrant depths of destructive, face-melting power that theSHIFT boasts is not lost in their lighter vocals. Without having to strain too hard to make a statement like some younger crowds, they’re a band that has certainly put itself to the front on talent alone.” – AXS.com... See MoreSee Less

Green Jellÿ (pronounced "green jello") was formed in 1981 in Kenmore, NY by founding member Bill Manspeaker. Originally named Green Jellö, the band changed its name due to legal pressure from the owners of the Jell-O trademark, Kraft Foods, who claimed that it was an infringement of their trademark. Throughout the early 80’s, Green Jellÿ performed throughout NY, opening for bands like The Ramones and New York Dolls. Their reputation for over-the-top live performances and food-hurling audiences got them banned from most local venues.
After finding local success, many of the members relocated to Hollywood, CA where they quickly became a fixture of the underground scene. Green Jellÿ then struck up an instant friendship with GWAR bonding with their mutual love of costumes and onstage antics. By this time, the band consisted of usually 20 members including new characters such as "Cowgod", "Rock n Roll Pumpkin", and "Satan's Ham." At one point even Danny Carey and Maynard James Keenan of Tool made the Green Jellÿ roster.
In 1992, Zoo Entertainment, a subsidiary of BMG, released Green Jellÿ’s “Cereal Killer,” an all video album including MTV hit, “The Three Little Pigs.” The following year, Zoo released an audio version of the album called, “Cereal Killer Soundtrack.” This album went gold in the US, and sold nearly 2.5 million units worldwide. The success led BMG to open Green Jellÿ studios in Hollywood, where the band recorded Grammy nominated, “333.” “333” includes “The Bear Song” from the Farrelly Brother’s film, Dumb and Dumber.
In the following years, Green Jellÿ continued to break the mold as they wrote the first ever video game soundtrack for Acclaim Entertainment video game, Spider Man & Venom: Maximum Carnage. Although they never officially broke up, band members went their separate ways until early 2008 when they reemerged for a US tour supporting a re-release of the Cereal Killer and 333 video/albums on DVD followed by a full lenght album entitled “Musick To Insult Your Intelligence By”. Their tour continues to be bigger, better and fatter than ever & promises to be more along the lines of a traveling Mardi Gras parade; with enough costumes and enough foodstuff to make Anthony Bourdain’s mouth water.
