Buzzing Brooklyn trio Sunflower Bean will make its Buffalo debut at 8 p.m. May 8 in Mohawk Place (47 E Mohawk St.).
While best know for its jangly breakthrough single "Easier Said," the trio's Fat Possum debut "Human Ceremony" tends to veer down a riffier, psych rock territory, nodding to acts like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and Tame Impala over the record's 11 tracks. Dripping with nostalgia, the well-received album has caught wind across the pond, landing the group on NME's Ones to Watch 2016 list earlier this year, as well as a handful of choice opening slots for acts like DIIV, Best Coast and Wolf Alice.
Tickets are available for $10 - $12 (door, Ticketmaster). Fresh off opening for El Vy at the Rapids Theater, Buffalo's urban surf outfit the Get Money Squad will provide local support. Further event details can be found here.
