3 can't-miss shows: Tough Old Bird, Honeymoonphase, Potty Mouth

Tough Old Bird, 8 p.m. June 28 at Mohawk Place (47 E. Mohawk St.), $5.

Buffalo folk project Tough Old Bird will be celebrating the release of its latest record this weekend.

Set to drop on the day of the show – June 28 – "The Old Great Lakes" finds the brotherly duo continuing to hone its weary and rustic brand of Americana, conjuring up the likes of Sam Amidon, A.A. Bondy and Buck Meek.

Those looking for a taste of the new album before the show can stream a couple of the record's tracks on band's website. A lyric video for the tune "Lake Erie Come Home" was also recently shared. The clip can be played below.

A rather-quality collection of support will open up the evening. Bare bones folk act Oats Holy Roller, dream-pop outfit coral collapse and Trumansburg's the Grand Low are all set to perform.

Honeymoonphase and Buffalo Sex Change, 7 p.m. June 30 at Mohawk Place (47 E. Mohawk St.), $5.

Mohawk Place will be hosting a mini Rochester invasion as Honeymoonphase and Buffalo Sex Change both take a quick trip down the I-90 to perform.

Honeymoonphase, a new group featuring members of Mikayla Davis' band and sister-city surf rock group the Huckleberry Finns, sounds like it would fit in nicely on Captured Tracks deep roster of dream pop acts. The trio has shared a pair of lo-fi tracks from its upcoming summer debut offering, which should appeal to fans of DIIV and Beach Fossils.

As for Buffalo Sex Change, the garage pair's most recent release, the raw and gritty "Searching Hands," dropped last year on locally rooted label Admirable Traits Records.

Velvet Bethany will represent Buffalo on the triple-bill. The garage-punk act recently shared its solid full-length record "Rock and Roll Vacation" back in February.

Potty Mouth with Colleen Green, 8 p.m. July 2 at Mohawk Place (47 E. Mohawk St.), $10.

Massachusetts pop-punk trio Potty Mouth will pay a visit to Mohawk Place. The trio's latest stop in Buffalo will be to perform songs from its long awaited sophomore offering "SNAFU." Shared earlier this year, the group's catchy collection of polished, arena-ready tunes recalls the likes of Veruca Salt, Green Day and Garbage.

Opening the show will be a set from tour mate Colleen Green. The indie punk-pop artist recently shared a track-by-track cover of Blink-182's "Dude Ranch" earlier this year, while her most recent offering of original music "Casey’s Tape/Harmontown Loops" dropped last year. Fans of Best Coast and Eleanor Friedberger should plan on arriving early to catch her.

Local support will be provided by indie rock act Stress Dolls.
