Johnny Marr

Saturday, Oct. 20th
$30 - $34; Starting: 8:00 PM

Musically, the sound of The Smiths – Marrs early band, was a guitar noise nostalgically familiar yet equally dumbfounding in its pristine newness. The tunes were giant, euphoric and instantaneous but woven together with such nimble flair it appeared as if the guitar was playing Marr instead of the other way round.  Don’t miss him coming through Buffalo on the Call the Comet Tour.
