Flatbed performs "40 Miles"

After what feels like several thousand weeks of winter, the springtime weather brings a little more life to the home front and Buffalonians are looking to party. Perfect timing for local band Flatbed, who will be celebrating their CD release party at Nietzsche’s on Friday (May 11), 10pm. The band self-produced the album, which is a balanced mix of country, folk, rock, blues and jazz, and features a few guest stars who add a little flavor and instrumental variety. Flatbed was nominated “Best Americana Band” at the Buffalo Music Awards for 2005 and 2006, so one can imagine there’s a yellow brick road up ahead for this group of seven musicians, who have already developed quite a following in the three years they’ve been performing. Special guests the Old Sweethearts open the show
