THE BLOOD AND TRASH TOUR
Mohawk Place/8pm/ $13 advance/$16 day of show
Jonny “Two Bags” Wickersham (guitarist for Social Distortion) comes to Buffalo this weekend with fellow Americana guitarists Jesse Dayton, and Scott H. Biram. Biram describes his sound as “the bastard child of punk, blues, country, hillbilly, bluegrass, chain gang, metal, classic rock” and this would aptly describe the style of all three. Come get down and dirty with them this Sunday at the Mohawk.
Iji is some seriously groovy pop music from Seattle musician Zach Burba. The band is him, plus 30 or so of his friends who sometimes assist him, as they did for his latest album Soft Approach. He’s got a definite Daniel Johnston-esque tone and a soft indie style that fluctuates between mellow instrumental and synth pop bouncey. Joining him Monday night will be Welks Mice & Peter Kirsch.
COLM WILKINSON: BROADWAY & BEYOND
UB Center For The Arts/7:30pm/ $61, $51, $43
Irish tenor Colm Wilkinson is probably best known as the original Jean Valjean in the very first run performance of Les Miserables. He then took the title role in Phantom Of The Opera in the Canadian production and made it his own. Broadway legend and vocal powerhouse, Wilkinson comes to UB’s CFA this Tuesday night to perform his most famous musical theatre hits, Irish classics & more.
Minnesotan Country Blues guitarist Charlie Parr comes to Sportsmen’s Tavern on Wednesday night. He plays a National resonator guitar, 12-string guitar, banjo, and harmonica, with a true roots, folk blues, raw, beautiful, Piedmont style sound.
