Humble Braggers live in the 9th Ward with Zealot, Darling Harbor and Instead of Sleeping co-headling the show!
Local indie rockers Humble Braggers haven’t been around for long, having debuted in July 2013, but that hasn’t stopped them from gaining some well-deserved recognition. Since having one of their tracks, “What’s Fair”, thrown into rotation on Buffalo’s popular alternative radio station WLKK 107.7FM, it’s been an uphill roller coaster of continued success.
Their debut EP, Safe Haven, features a blend of hypnotic ambience, new-age haziness and a handful of other alternative characteristics into a unique sound that truly belongs to Humble Braggers. From catchy guitar lines to hard hitting choruses, Safe Haven traverses a wide sonic landscape while still maintaining a consistent sound. Lead singer Tom Burtless’ pipes backed by an almost 80s instrumentation, makes Humble Braggers a band you can bring your mom to and a discog you can post on social media.
Also performing this night is Zealot, a fuzz rock three-piece who debuted late last year with their heavy, No Age-esque single, “Magic Eye,” and has slowly been building a nice following between bouncing between Fredonia and Buffalo.
Darling Harbor’s debut EP was released shortly before their one year anniversary. Truth in my Lies is part love letter, part confessional, part soapbox that has been on regular rotation on radio stations across the state of New York. Prior to their EP’s release the folk-rock group had a busy year being the go-to Buffalo opener for international touring acts like Field Report and Said the Whale. “With infectious melodies followed by captivating hooks, it’s no wonder that Darling Harbor’s new album, Truth in my Lies, will leave catchy songs brimming off your lips for days.” ~ narmeensays.com
Hailing from the industrial-hub of Pittsburgh, PA, comes the last performer, indie-rock band Instead of Sleeping. Comprised of Shaun Sweeney (guitar/lead vocals), Jeff Binando (bass/backup vocals), Woody Wright (guitar/keys/auxiliary percussion) Corey McClaine (drums); this four-piece has been demanding the attention of the Steel City and beyond with their signature blend of contemporary indie rock since their 2008 inception.
