If we move past the obvious party metal comparison and the unpleasant imagery of the name (sorry if you’re not already picturing an entire planet of diarrhea), Diarrhea Planet is a hardworking band with a more-than-devoted fan base that has successfully transitioned themselves from a “buzz band” to a mainstay in the rock scene.

The sextet from Nashville, TN consistently owns and stays true to their image and sound, one that is eccentric, a little droll, but never hackneyed. They are a well-oiled arena punk machine with classic riffage and the energy of a loaded bottle rocket. Think Andrew W.K. meets The Afghan Whigs meets Heavy Cream.

Buffalo’s own psychedelic blues rockers Sleepy Hahas will also be gracing the stage, along with punk rock outfit Left & Right from Charlottesville, VA.

Last time Diarrhea Planet was in town, the guys played Mohawk on a Monday, and it looks like they’re keeping up this trend. If you’re feeling lethargic from the work week already, showing up at Mohawk Place tonight is a no-brainer.

Doors are at 7pm, and if you don’t already have a ticket, you can grab one for $12 upon your arrival.
