HEaRD in WNY: Shows for May 24 - 30

This week's featured show is Intrepid Travelers & Acid Cats on Thursday, May 24.

Founded in 2013 on friendship, fun, and a sense of freedom, Intrepid Travelers is a musical quartet from Buffalo, NY that defines itself through boundless improvisation and eclectic evolution. Treating each live show as a journey with the audience rather than a performance, Intrepid Travelers pride themselves on a form of focused, collective expression that showcases a medium where cerebral musicianship meets heartfelt, soulful songwriting.

Quickly building a following as an improvisational band that draws influence from the diverse catalog of American music, each show delves into the unknown, throwing aside setlists and traditional arrangements for explorations in all genres, from heavy roots in jazz-funk fusion, rock, bluegrass, to even classical and electronic music. Party music for the head and heart that also keeps the dance floor grooving.

Since 2016, “IT” has been busy both in the studio and out, with the release of third EP “Everyday Is Your Birthday”, embarking on multiple national tours, and the follow-up of its annual family-run festival, “IT Fest”, all on its resume. Already breaking 100 shows in 2016 and 2017, the young band has been on a meteoric rise like no other, and with the inclusion in national festivals such as Summer Camp Music Festival, Cobblestone Live, and Night Lights, people are beginning to notice. With the completion of only their fourth year, Intrepid Travelers are already continuing the great tradition of bringing people together, and do so with the same musical honesty and rawness of improvisation giants before.

Intrepid Travelers are celebrating their 5 year anniversary early with Cinco en Mayo: 5 nights of IT in May! They say home is where the heart is, so they're treating our home city of Buffalo with 5 nights of IT, featuring different musical guests each show as well as themes for each night! This week's guest is Acid Cats (featuring members of Broccoli Samurai) with a 9:00pm door and only a $7 cover! Get down to Nietzsche's on Thursday, May 24th to witness Intrepid & Acid for a wild ride of a night!
