Sunday, Jan. 17

Shoegaze is the name of the game on Sunday, Jan. 17, with local and regional indie bands taking the stage at Basement Transmissions.

For those not in the loop, “shoegaze” is a term used to describe certain styles of alternative and indie rock bands, characterized by the heavy use of effects pedals and ambience, which often requires the guitarists to stare down toward their feet for the majority of the band’s set.

Tomoreaux, Buffalo’s hardest working shoegaze band, is headlining the bill. The three-piece is releasing their latest album At Peace Overlook on Jan. 8 and have booked a string of shows over the next two months taking them all over New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and even into Quebec.

Frame and Mantle, The Standby, and Maddock are the local acts filling out the bill, each offering their own distinct style of what might be considered shoegaze. Frame and Mantle brings their American Football meets new Title Fight sound, The Standby delivers ambient grunge with a subtle pop punk twist, and Maddock adds a groovy edge to express their music.

BT is hosting this show in the back room, which is usually reserved for acoustic shows and hanging out between sets. The setting is much more intimate, and it is sure to complement the style of music being played that night. – Tommy Shannon
