3 can't-miss shows: Julie Byrne, Son of the Sun, more

Julie Byrne, 8 p.m. July 28, Silo City (Silo City Row), $15-$20

After becoming a sleeper blog darling over the last few years, Julie Byrne's stunning new album "Not Even Happiness" has seen the former Buffalo-bred, currently NYC-rooted folk musician break through. The record has been included on countless best-of lists at the halfway mark of the year, and received a clutch "Best New Music" distinction from Pitchfork.

Her latest local appearance will find her performing within the acoustically rich grain elevators down at Silo City. Joining her will be frequent silo Lara Buckley, as well as Noah Falck from Just Buffalo Literary Center.

Pre-sale tickets are currently available for purchase at Gutter Pop Comics and Cafe Taza.


Son of the Sun, First Ward, the Soft Love, A House Safe for Tigers, 8 p.m. July 28, Buffalo Iron Works (49 Illinois St.), $7-$10

When long time Buffalo act Son of the Sun disbanded a few years back, its members continued to work on music.

Frontman/vocalist Zak Ward, after dropping a couple stellar solo releases, recently debuted his driving rock project First Ward.

Meanwhile, guitarists Jeremy Franklin and Joe Stocker began making music as the dark and brooding garage-rock quartet Soft Love, and finally, drummer Brandon Delmont has continued to work with his dreamy, psych-pop project A House Safe for Tigers.

With that being said, Buffalo Iron Works is set to host "Spanning Time," an evening of music that will bring those three groups, in addition to a Son of the Sun reunion, all under one roof. If you missed out on Son of the Sun, or have been sleeping on the members new projects, this night is as good as any to catch up.
