3 can't-miss shows: Reed Turchi, Geezer, Sugar City Soul Night

Reed Turchi, 8 p.m. April 13 in Mohawk Place (47 E Mohawk St.), $5.

Less than a year since his last local appearance, North Carolina troubadour Reed Turchi is ready to return to the Mohawk stage.

The groovy blues rocker is on the road in support of his just-released new record "Just a Little More Faith." The analog-recorded album finds the multi-instrumental paying homage to Southern, swampy blues in addition to elements of gospel, soul and R&B into the final package.

Retro boogie rock mainstays Handsome Jack and psychedelic Americana act Black Canyon Lights will provide local support.

Sugar City Soul Night, 8 p.m. April 14, Buffalo Arts Studio (2495 Main St.), $30.

Trimania, the reoccurring fundraiser event for Buffalo Arts Studio, is back to celebrate Buffalo's art, music and culture.

While the event offers a endless array of installations and performances throughout its six floor, 520,000 square feet space, make sure to spend some extra time on floor four to catch a special edition of Sugar City's popular Soul Night dance party.

Normally located at the long-running series home base venue of Milkie's on Elmwood, DJs Pat K, Reazon, Press and Steve Soulson will be setting up shop in suite 439 to spin choice cuts of vintage Motown, soul, funk, doo-wop and more all night long.

While you are up there, skip over to suite 413 D for the DIY collective's Sonic and Visual Journey showcase which features performances from the angst-ridden outfit Passed Out, electro-noise artist Sparklebomb and nostalgic DJ sets from the 1990s-indebted As If Dance Party.

Geezer, 7 p.m. April 14, Buffalo Iron Works (49 Illinois St.), $10.

Nostalgia from the 1990s will be in full effect this weekend in the Cobblestone District as two classic alternative-rock records will be covered from front-to-back.

Geezer, a local tribute to Green Day and Weezer, will tackle the two bands' breakout albums "Dookie" and "Weezer (Blue Album)," respectively. Hits including "Buddy Holly," "Basketcase," "When Come Around," "Sat It Ain't So" and more will all be faithfully performed just as you first heard them.

The tribute act features members of vintage rock 'n' roll outfit Kickstart Rumble, Irish folk ensemble Reardon & Garvey, reggae group Sexy Rock Band and surf rock act the Freshwater Four.
