When you think of Fredonia’s BJ’s, you normally think of college bands, bands like Mooses and Zealot, playing to the loyal local audiences and co-eds. In fact, one of Plainsman’s many phallic objects is still probably lying around the bar from a past Well Worn Boot show. What you don’t think of when you think of BJ’s, at least not initially, is the band Cloud Nothings. This is one of the biggest acts in indie rock right now. But, just over a half an hour ago, the bar announced via FB and Twitter that the Cleveland three-piece will be playing the college town haunt on Friday, May 8th. The bar then channeled Almost Famous with a follow up status of “ITS ALL HAPPENING.” The bar is clearly ending the semester on a high note.
The now trio followed up its breakthrough album, Attack on Memory, with 2014’s equally impressive Here and Nowhere Else last April, and then proceeded to destroy Buffalo Iron Works three days later with a show-of-the-year contending set
Despite trying to stick to Buffalo with this show announcements, this one seemed worth the time to write up. While an on-sale was not announced, tickets will cost $7 for 21+, $12 for under. Check out the now Facebook official event page for further details.
