Valentine's tribute

Buffalo experimental trio La Cacahouette is headlining "My Bloody Valentine's Day," a multi-act bill honoring, at least in part, the music of British alternative pioneers My Bloody Valentine, inside Mohawk Place, 47 East Mohawk St., beginning at 9 p.m. Tuesday.

The bill will feature, in addition to La Cacahouette, performances from Sleeping Kings of Iona, Besnyo, and Bloomington, Ind., quartet Otis & the Rufies. Each of the bands will include a few My Bloody Valentine numbers in their sets.

The gig is a tour kick-off for La Cacahouette, which will hit the road with Otis & the Rufies immediately following, for dates in the Northeast, including a stop inside New York City's venerable Knitting Factory.

In recent months, the band -- formed in 2003 by spouses Pepper Oschner Thomas and Gerald Thomas, and now including percussionist Blake Ellman -- has opened for artists such as Ted Leo, Tristeza, An Albatross and Righteous Babe's Drums & Tuba.

Admission at the door for "My Bloody Valentine's Day" will be $5. Call Mohawk Place at 855-3931 with questions.
