None of the guys live in town these days, and they haven’t for decades, but Moe. has never short-changed its hometown audience. This weekend, the little Buffalo jam-band that could comes home for a pair of shows at 8 p.m. Sept. 30 and Oct. 1.
Moe. shows are always touched by the thrill of the unexpected, and hometown shows have routinely been magical affairs over the years. But this time around, area fans will be offered an unusual treat while the guys are in town. On Oct. 1, Moe. is teaming with Buffalo Fat Bikes for the first-ever “Moe. History Tour,” which one might imagine as a slow roll incorporating the many landmarks associated with the band’s birth and growth in Buffalo. Buffalo Fat Bikes is owned by Moe.’s long-serving sound engineer, Steve Young, and for this special tour, Young will be joined by guitarist Al Schnier –which, if you’ve ever met Al, you know will be a hoot.
For the traveling Moe. fan – and what real fan hasn’t taken to the road to see the band at some point over the years? – there’s more tantalizing activity on the horizon. On October 28 and 29, Moe. will present “Tarantinoe.Halloweenoe,” a theme weekend celebrating the grisly wit of Quentin Tarantino’s films and their soundtracks.
Remaining tickets for Friday and Saturday’s Town Ballroom shows are available here.
