Little Ugly live in the 9th Ward with Ahavaraba opening the show!
Little Ugly is a band born of hard work and dedication to their craft. Since their inception in 2008, they have ascended the ranks to become one of Connecticut’s most recognizable and lauded bands. Their most recent release, Where the River’s Born, which was made possible by an appreciative fan base who funded the band’s Kickstarter, has been praised as having run the “gamut of what “Americana” could possibly be and yet remains something so unique.”
Their songs come from personal spaces, emotional landscapes that are incongruently shared by all: love, hope, fear, alienation; mountains, sidewalks, trails, trains; edges, crooked lines, falling, and flying. The resulting unique Little Ugly sound has been described as “Indie rock, folk, even tiny bits of country, blues and plain old rock n’ roll.”
Seeing Little Ugly live will transcend the experience of hearing Little Ugly. You’ll be mesmerized by the foot-stomping energy, their bodies moving in a rhythmic trance, claimed by the spirits found in each song.
Buffalo’s most ravishing new klezmer band, Ahavaraba opens the show. Filled with abundant love, they are 7 or 8ish members – like an octopus on a good day. Accordions! Flutes! Clarinets! Violin! Percussion! Mandolin! Singing! Trombones (maybe!), Donkey Jaw (sometimes!)
