The Werks will be performing Wednesday, February 13th at Buffalo’s Historic Venue Nietzsche’s on Allen Street. The show starts at 9pm with two local acts, Slip Madigan and The MKG’s, both of which are great in their own right! This show is 21+ and will cost $10 at the door. On Thursday, February 14th, The Werks head to The Westcott Theater in Syracuse with Second Dam and The Methodist Bells opening up. Tickets for the Syracuse show are $12-15 and is an all ages affair.
The Werks have quickly emerged as a national powerhouse. As a result of their eclectic individual influences, The Werks produce a dance party that can be appreciated by a majority of musical tastes. Fusing the psychedelic shredding guitar and screaming organ of jam and classic rock with funk slap bass, synthesizers, and modern dance beats, The Werks create their own style of music best described as ‘Psychedelic Dance Rock’. Their unique style of performing is affected and manipulated by the energy of the audience, guaranteeing that each show will be different and memorable.
The success is largely credited to the hard work of their street team as well as to the dedication of the band, their fans and a unique performance. The band regularly tours the US and holds their annual music festival, entitled “The Werk Out Music and Arts Festival“, each September.
The Werks have released 4 albums entitled: Dig It (2007), Synapse (2009), The Werks Live at The Werk Out Music Festival (2010) and their self-titled album, The Werks (2012). Make sure to catch their show at Nietzsche’s which is a CD release show as part of their Funemployment Tour.
