Tonight the Chicago-based duo North by North will take the stage at The 9th Ward, the bar located in the basement of the multi-use facility Babeville at 341 Delaware Ave. North by North’s brand of hard-hitting, riff-oriented rock will be the go-to rock show in town this evening. Also on the bill are buzzing up-and-coming local act, Witty Tarbox, indie rockers The Rifts, and perhaps the busiest grunge revivalist act in Buffalo, Nylon Otters. The show will start at 8pm with an $8 cover.
