Cute Is What We Aim For’s path to prominence has been wildly circuitous.
Putting Cute Is What We Aim For’s break-ups and long stretches with little new music into the periphery, Buffalo natives Shaant Hacikyan (Williamsville North HS), Jeff Czum (guitar) and Tom Falcone (drums) are rejuvenated, eager to release new music and closing out an East Coast spring tour.
The band makes its triumphant return to a Buffalo stage at 6 tonight at Waiting Room, 334 Delaware Ave., Buffalo, with openers The Dangerous Summer, Made Violent and The Daydream Chronicles. The show is presented by After Dark Entertainment, and tickets run for $15 at the door.
If you’re still buzzing (with excitement) following the show, an after-party is scheduled for midnight to 4 a.m. at the Pink, 223 Allen St., Buffalo, and drink specials, guest DJs and mystery shenanigans are planned.
For an update on what’s happening with CIWWAF, here’s Rock Forever Magazine’s video interview with frontman Hacikyan:
While new EP “Real Eyes” will likely arrive before the close of 2013, a few new demo tracks have popped up on YouTube, including “Titanic” and “Next to Me.” You can watch those below.
Here’s a nearby opportunity to see what the pop-punk luminaries of the late-‘90s, early 2000s have up their sleeves—they still have over one million fans on Facebook, and it’s the final show of their spring tour, so it’s clear they intend to close with a bang in their hometown.
