Somewhere on the outskirts of reality, the denizens of that edge world need music. Soft and full of light, this place deserves someone like Buffalo Rodeo to play for their. Ethereal sounds echoing of early Pink Floyd stirred with the modern, rock quirk of Tame Impala - there is a perfect balance here. (Think Brian Jonestown Massacre without all that heaviness.) Every few years we get to work with the provocateurs of these psychedelic waters. Not since Puerto Rico's Fantasmes graced the Outlaw stage in Austin TX in 2012, have I felt so strongly about a band in this category, however. Buffalo Rodeo are gifted everything and nothing all at once and that's exactly what we need! Welcome to The Outlaw Roadshow.
Formed around 2008 in a music-thirsty gulch of the hills of Bowling Green, KY around the likes of Cage the Elephant, Sleeper/Agent, and Morning Teleportation, Buffalo Rodeo has worked tirelessly as an independent band securing shows at festivals such as Riot Festival (Chicago), Moontower Music Festival, The Big To-Do Festival, Starry Nights Music & Arts Festival as well as booking tours and traveling through most of the eastern half of the United States. Comprised of original members Nate Davis (guitar), Zach Preston (vocals), and Ryan Gilbert (drums), Buffalo Rodeo added Jordan Reynolds (keys, vocals) in 2012 along with Patrick Duncan (bass) and Kevin Creambus (van) the following year to result in a road-hungry combination ready to bring vibrations to all the right eardrums.
The band's latest release, "123 Water" is what you're listening to and is completely worth every second of your time. I would recommend you not miss the band's set with us in Nashville on Friday 7/17.
The Outlaw Roadshow is absolutely free to the public (ticket giveaways begin soon!) July 17 & 18 at the Mercy and High Watt in downtown Nashville. New artists announced each day!
