Sweet Sounds @ Sugar City

There is a show coming to Buffalo this Thursday that you should catch. First of all, the venue is Sugar City, one of Allentown’s most eclectic venues. That means that it’s going to be an intimate show – a real close-up showing of the band Sgt. Dunbar and the Hobo Banned. What’s interesting about the band is that it started off its music career as a group of internet street musicians, traveling around Albany and posting their performances online.

Anytime someone can tell me that a band that draws comparisons to Neutral Milk Hotel is playing at a venue like Sugar City… and that the instruments of choice include trumpets, coronets, a tuba, banjos, a saw and a typewriter… then you can sign me up. Joining in on the action will be Buffalo’s Reverend Soapbox and the Rabble Rousers along with Lucubrae. It all takes place in Allentown at Sugar City with the sounds starting at 8pm. Be sure to check out Sugar City website for details.

*Show starts at 8 pm, with the five dollar cover going to support future Sugar City projects.  The Sugar City gallery will be open throughout the evening.
