This past Tuesday, Buffalo had a lot going on. COIN at the Town Ballroom, Circa Waves at the 9th Ward, Frankie Cosmos at Mohawk, and Mitski at the Tralf Music Hall. If you ended up you picking the Mitski show that night, you made a very smart choice. Stef Chura kicked off the two band show off with a quick, charming set, equal parts bouncy and emotional.  When Mitski took the stage, she immediately demanded attention. The crowd was respectful throughout their set, in which she performed some tremendously emotionally dense tracks, focusing on her last two records, Puberty 2 and Bury Me at Makeout Creek.  Mitski made their first stop in Buffalo since 2014 a memorable one, and hopefully it won’t take them another 3 years to come back around town. Check out some photos from the night below, shot by blog photographer, Brendan O’Connor.
