9th Ward at Babeville, Buffalo, NY
Ghost-gaze explorers The Leones return to 9th Ward on Saturday February 18th for a third time with friend Sonny Baker who will be performing a special solo set. Post-rock act Chevron Bloom to open.
Dream-weaving guitarist Dustin Lau adds space and emotion that flow like a river with singer-songwriter Justin Leone Bachulak's score-like piano and soulful, reverb-laden vocals. Bachulak's ghostly songs mixed with Lau's dreamy tones, takes the listener on a journey which works well with their common theme involving natural landscapes.
Growing from a duo to a quartet with drummer Kevin Carney and bassist Wren Werner, The Leones influences stem from Kurt Vile, The War on Drugs and My Morning Jacket. But their slew of synthed-out, horror stories that are featured on recent release "Ghost in the City" are currently what The Leones are known for. Like the Twin Peaks inspired "Fire Walk With Me" and the desolate, minor keyed "Eyes". The band is currently moving into jammy, road trip, 70's psych and 80's dream-rock. Sounds that will be featured on their upcoming album "Songs from the Canyon". Their epic 15+ minute ride of opus "Canyon" creates deep connections with the listener while channeling Neil Young and Crazy Horse. Carols Castaneda would dig.
Catch some good vibes with The Leones together with a solo Sonny Baker for a third time at 9th Ward, Saturday February 18th.
