The unexpected Damian Weber farewell tour may hit the end of the line Nov. 2 at Nietzsche’s.
The recently married singer/songwriter, better known as simply Damian, is leaving Buffalo for New York City at the beginning of 2016 and, since Damian shows are a "once in a blue moon" type of affair, his set at the Nietzsche’s weekly songwriter showcase may be your last chance to catch the humble musician perform locally.
As a member of Heart Parts and Difficult Night, in addition to his solo work, the never-satisfied Weber has contributed a strong collection of songs, poems and art to the scene for over six years, “his lost weekend” as he calls it. His most recent album, the open diary musings of “You Don’t Need It,” dropped last year, and a new record from Weber is hard at work, set to be shared whenever he sees fit, so expect a mix of new and old at Nietzsche's. Requests will be welcomed.
Not only can you enjoy a set from Weber at Nietzsche’s, but if the mood strikes, you can perform a set of your own. It is an open mic after all. So bring a guitar and maybe you will be inspired to join him on stage. At the very least, buy the guy a beer. The city is losing one of its finest musicians, after all.
Damian Weber performs at 9 p.m. Nov. 2 in Nietzsche’s (248 Allen St.). Entry is free. Click here for the Facebook event.
