Band of the Week: The White Buffalo

Band of the Week

the white buffalo

Working under the apt nameplate The White Buffalo, singer/songwriter Jake Smith has resolutely charted his own single-minded course for more than a decade. Smith writes about rebels, outsiders and troubled souls battling their way through the obstacles life throws in their paths. The hard-bitten themes and performances that have defined his career led the producers of Sons of Anarchy to grab six of Smith’s songs for use under scenes in the similarly edgy series, while The White Buffalo’s “American Dream,” written specifically for the 2013 feature film The Lone Ranger: Wanted, appears on the soundtrack album alongside contributions from fellow iconoclasts Lucinda Williams, Dave Alvin, Iggy Pop, Ben Kweller, The Aggrolites, Shane MacGowan of The Pogues and Iron & Wine.

The San Francisco Bay area excitingly welcomes The White Buffalo this week on their co-headlining tour with Chuck Ragan for two huge performances on April 3 at Slim’s and April 4 at the Great American Music Hall. Tickets for both show are still available but act quick as both nights will sell out.
