Slap on your Sunday best, and Join us at Thin Man Brewery, Buffalo, NY, for a very special evening with UPSTATE (formerly known as Upstate Rubdown). Upstate will be playing a fully unplugged set in the intimately sized, and dimly-lit, upstairs bar & loft at Thin Man Brewery. They’ve become known for their mid-set steps off the stage, where they’ll often go unplugged for three or more songs, and we are aiming to bring that unique experience & energy to Thin Man Brewery for a full evening.
Tickets are extremely limited, and are available in multiple tiers:
General Admission: $20.00
Dinner* + A Show + 2 Drinks on Us: $40.00
Dinner* + A Show + Open Bar (7pm-10pm): $50.00
*A dinner buffet with select items from Thin Man Brewery’s menu will be available prior to the showtime at 8, so show up early, and enjoy some food and drink.
For Upstate, the last few years have been a time of profound exploration and self-discovery. As the band knocked off milestone after milestone on the road, their sound, their lineup, and even their name all underwent dramatic metamorphoses. Challenging and thrilling all at once, those changes have finally culminated in the sextet’s dazzling new album, a collection that showcases both their remarkable growth and their adventurous blend of folk, R&B, jazz, gospel, and rock and roll. Recorded primarily over six days at the Clubhouse studio in Rhinebeck, NY, ‘Healing’ is the band’s first release with new member Allison Olender, their first with four contributing songwriters, and their first since shortening their name from Upstate Rubdown. It’s also their first project to be produced by Wood Brothers percussionist Jano Rix, who helped the group embrace their transformation and lean in to their unique lineup without sacrificing any of the gorgeous harmonies, eclectic arrangements, and unforgettable performances that have defined the band since their earliest days.
