We The Kings are coming to Buffalo. Well, maybe.
The hooky-heavy emo outfit is the latest act to sign with Fanbassador, a crowd-funding platform of sorts that holds ticket selling competitions to help get touring acts to smaller secondary markets.
For the Bradenton, Fla. band's 10th anniversary tour, its #WTK10 itinerary has added Buffalo and Syracuse to its Fanbassador contest, with the winning city set to host the group at 7 p.m. March 1. The venue will be named once a city has won.
The young Buffalo-based company has previously worked with bands like Buffalo's Cute Is What We Aim For and Punchline and will later add Every Time I Die, Darkest Hour and Youth in Revolt to its growing alumni of acts.
"Tickets" will go on sale for $20 at 10 a.m. Dec. 7 (Fanbassador.com). The contest will run until midnight Jan. 3 or until a sell-out goal is reached. The losing city will have ticket sales refunded to all patrons.
