The greatest form of flattery is imitation, so what exactly does it mean to pay tribute? If you have ever checked out Buffalo’s premier Modest Mouse tribute band, Pompous Rat, the answer is simple. Overflow of love and respect. Spearheaded by The Real Movement’s Kevin Kauffman, Pompous Rat takes the main stage tonight at Nietzsche’s. Expect two sets from Modest Mouse’s expansive catalog.

In addition, tonight will mark the debut performance of former Halo Nellie guitarist, Nate Miller with his new project Olmsted. The evening will have us all float on, okay. Doors at 9pm with a $7 cover.
