Bidwell Indie 5000
Sunday, August 28th
Indie rock in Buffalo is alive and healthy, and making a stand in the heart of the Elmwood Village, Bidwell Park. On Sunday (Aug 28) twelve of the city’s finest rock bands will gang up for the Bidwell Indie 5000, presented by local record label Steak and Cake Records—a pro-bono, indie record label that offers recording and digital distribution services at no cost. Included in this first ever Bidwell Indie 5000 are some familiar names like folkish indie band the Mordaunt Sisters, pop-rockers the Tins, and electronic duo Love Scenes, as well as some new comers like tuneful garage rockers Badmilk. Also set to play are three-piece funk band Luanjie, Andrew J Reimers Country Punk Extravaganza—a band who’s name speaks for itself, acoustic guitar darling Becca Ryskalczyk, Nick Gordon, Damian Weber, the NYBRKFST, Bill Times a Billion, and Sound Shaman. This could be one of your last chances to experience the best of Buffalo’s indie-rock scene in an outdoor format this summer, and there is no better place than Bidwell Park. —cory perla
