A couple months ago, long time Denton, TX rockers, Centro-matic brought their farewell tour through the Sportsmen’s Tavern, putting a cap on a nearly 20 year career, one that adopted Buffalo as a home away from home for the band. If you happened to miss the Centro-matic’s Buffalo goodbye, you sort of have a chance for redemption tonight at front man Will Johnson (Monsters of Folk) will be back in town, performing at the first house concert of the year in the living room Marty Boratin and Susan Tanner’s Hamburg home.
Many people point to the first Canalside show as the beginning of summer, but in my mind, despite the weather not doing a very convincing job, Marty and Susan’s house concerts are the real start to the summer concert season.
While Johnson isn’t set to go on until around 8pm, guests are encouraged to arrive around 6pm, with a dish in hand, for a potluck dinner. The suggested donation is $20 for this evening’s performance. Andy Potheir of the Evil Things and Pine Fever is set to open. If you need Marty and Susan’s address, you can it here.
