Great White Buffalo at The Independent
Date(s) - 23 Feb 2013 until 24 Feb 2013
8:30 PM - 1:30 AM
Both frontman Graham Bockmiller and lead guitarist Stephen Johnson hail from just East of the Caldecott Tunnel. They formed GWB in 2011 in Los Angeles, and this week they’ll get two chances to showoff their hard work to a hometown audience. Rounding out the band in the rhythm section are drummer Rich Carillo and bassist Paul Hiller.
In the two years since the band’s inception, they’ve been recording and gigging non-stop, killing it in iconic LA rooms like El Cid & The Viper Room. SoCal is taking notice, recently including GWB in a list of 10 LA Bands You Should Know, in fast company with Father John Misty and Lord Huron.
GWB just released a self-titled EP and are getting on the road to share what they’ve done. The end of February will give them two opportunities to showcase their new material in the Bay. First, they’ll play in support of the New Orleans rock group The Revivalists at The Independent. The following Wednesday will find them at Bender’s Bar playing a happy hour party hosted by San Franpsycho as a part of the 21st annual Noise Pop Festival.
