King Buffalo/New England Beach Snobs
FRIDAY MAY 19
Join us for a loud evening of fringe rock n roll. Submerge yourselves in the miserable waves of local sludge surf punks New England Beach Snobs and then drift into space with the doom styled rock n roll of King Buffalo. Come party. No Creeps. No Jerks.
Trophy Dad, Real Things & Drive Me Home Please
SATURDAY, MAY 20
Smoky psych pop from Wisconsin, real heartful tunes from real friends & solo synth pop from Rochester. Wowowowow this is gonna be great one. Old friends, new friends, margaritas, sodas & ice cold H20 all under a wash of some real sonic feelz. Keep Otro Cinco a good place to see music and not pay ridiculous covers the bands never even see.
Grayak w/s/g Creatures
THURSDAY JUNE 1
Get down to the peaceful grooves of acclaimed acoustic reggae folk band Grayak! The solo project of Root Shock's Phil Grajko, this band celebrates a night at Otro with a performance featuring a cast of all original members. In 2012, Phil decided to embark on a new musical adventure. He teamed up with his sister, Hannah, and long-time friends Andrew and Noah VanNorstrand to begin fleshing out a new batch of songs. These back porch jam sessions eventually led to the album "Made of Light", which blended uplifting reggae songwriting with acoustic bluegrass and folk instrumentation. A performance by bassist VanNorstrand's new band Creatures is also on the docket.
