Bite The Buffalo are brothers Miti and Stof Goneos, who after growing up in the mining towns of Zambia, set their sites and sounds on the UK, creating their energetic garage rock sounds with the support of bandmates Cassidy Jones and Jake Salvador Meeking.
The band released their debut EP Bromigos in 2012 and a UK, Europe and US tour followed. The success of their debut album Blue Lips then took the brothers to SXSW festival in Texas and back to a storming set on the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury. The guys were catapulted even further when they caught the attention of Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant, who invited the brothers to support him at his Manchester Apollo show in 2013.
Fresh from releasing their new album Big Blind in June, NightBus invites them to Mr Wolf’s for a special show with support from Bristol rock duo Little Thief, a free AGWA cocktail, and afterparty until 4am.
