SATURDAY, MAY 27
The Hovelists with Poindexter
8pm, at Mohawk Place, 47 E Mohawk St.
If you prefer your music with a more aggressive edge, check out this lineup at Mohawk Place that celebrates the release of the first full length from The Hovelists and features Poindexter (pictured), a band that was featured in our May issue led by R Jeffrey Proctor. The trio just recently played at CLAW in Cleveland — if they can entertain all those preoccupied dudes in leather, surely they can entertain Buffalo.
