Wednesday Night Concert with La Cacahouette



Buffalo, NY –


Influenced by 60s psychedelia, shoegaze and prog, the band's distinct sound ranges from sleepy-eyed dream pop to grandiose wall-of-noise epics - both extremes often found in the same song. Led by a husband and wife team of Pepper Ochsner Thomas and Gerald Thomas and rounded out by Blake Ellman on drums, the trio formed in 2003 and has since developed a devoted fan base in the Queen City and beyond. Since their inception, La Cacahouette has opened for such diverse national acts as Ted Leo & the Pharmacists, Tristeza, Lisa Loeb, I Am the World Trade Center, and Silversun Pickups.
