Radio station Alternative Buffalo is celebrating its fourth birthday with a big bash featuring music by Foster the People, MisterWives and Buffalo’s own Wild Things.
The show is at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 12 at Buffalo RiverWorks (359 Ganson St.). Tickets are $35 general admission and go on sale at 10 a.m. July 15 at alternativebuffalo.com. A limited number of #altfamily VIP packages are available as well.
“It’s hard to believe, but Alternative Buffalo has been on-air now for nearly four years. And in what has become sort of a tradition, we are throwing ourselves and the #AltFamily a party!” said Nik Rivers, program director of Alt Buffalo at 107.7 and 104.7 FM. “We are very excited to be bringing Foster The People and Misterwives together for the people of Buffalo at a venue that showcases the resurgence of downtown Buffalo in RiverWorks, as well as showcasing the local talent that Buffalo has to offer with Wild Things.”
Foster the People is a California indie-pop band fronted by Mark Foster. His song, “Pumped Up Kicks,” became an internet sensation in 2010, which led to licensing deals for the song to be played on multiple television shows and performances on late-night TV programs.
