Avi Buffalo

Since last appearing in Seattle for the Capitol Hill Block Party in July, Avi Buffalo’s been on the road, still touring in support of their widely acclaimed self-titled debut. Amazon and NME both named the record one of the best of 2010, and the teenage quartet has been touring with Modest Mouse and My Morning Jacket; they even performed a Neil Young cover with Jeff Tweedy at Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival in August. This fall Avi’s taking the reins and headlining their own tour; many of the shows are selling out to fans eager to take in the youthful drama of songs like “What’s In It For?” and "Where's Your Dirty Mind?" Take in the sugary pop while you can – Avi Zahner-Isenberg recently told NME that their second album is inspired by Dr. Dre’s The Chronic 2001. With The Head and the Heart. ERIN K. THOMPSON
