Seeing Avi Buffalo is just like driving through a forest on a winding road; there are surprises around every corner.
This was the second time I have seen Avi. The first time, I was more then impressed and captivated. The second time – same thing. I’m not sure how to describe it. I would have to say, it sounds a lot like a young, and not-so-wasted Isaac Brock (Modest Mouse).
This band is rapidly improving their live performance, but they are still young and have a few things they need to work on before they will be able to rock some of the country’s larger venues.
1. Everyone in the band seemed almost afraid to face the crowd, and often ended up turning in towards the stage and away from the audience. ( I think in a few years these guys will be taking the audience head on, and will be putting on a much more intense performance.)
2. A few of the band members were watching their fingers pretty intently as they played, almost as if they weren’t sure they were going to play the right note. (I’m just nitpicking, but I notice these things and bet that in a few years they won’t be doing it at all.)

All in all, Avi Buffalo is a fantastic band I hope to see again really soon. If you dig the music, I highly recommend checking them out live. -Lorn
Avi Buffalo is about to embark on a brief tour of Europe, but will be back in North America on May 30th to play the Sasquatch Music Festival in George, Washington. They will also tour the US and Canada this summer.
