I know that people are really going to be stoked when they hear that Pearl Jam is coming to town. I’ve never seen the band live before and I’d like to catch a performance, but for me they are an added bonus to the opening act coming to The HSBC Arena – Band of Horses. It was only moments ago that I learned that the group was even coming to Buffalo… the press release announced that Pearl Jam was hitting downtown on Monday May 10th. Then, as I gleaned the release the opening act jumped out at me.
I always thought that when I finally caught Band of Horses it would be at a more intimate venue, not The HSBC Arena. Of course I had not taken into account that they would be opening for Pearl Jam. The Indie rock band is preparing audiences with the release of its new album titled, Infinite Arms. With songs like “No One’s Gonna Love You” and “The Funeral”, Band of Horses has been climbing the ranks of stardom… maybe it’s appropriate that they have teamed up with Pearl Jam and will be piggybacking on major production effects.
If you want to get a dose of one of their most acclaimed songs, then you might want to check out this YouTube video featuring BMX rider Danny Macaskill. The video is insane – and you’ll never be able to get the images out of your head the next time you hear “The Funeral”. Turn it up loud and let the video send shivers down your spine!
