HAEWA at Photo City

Join Haewa for their next hometown show at Photo City Improv with guests Strange Standard from Buffalo and more TBA!

18+, $10

HAEWA: 
Upon the creation of Haewa in 2011, the trio established its foundation by captivating their audiences with fearless improvisation and a heavy blanket of sound. With recent addition of keyboardist/synth wizard Troy Evans and powerhouse groove master Marco Cirigliano, Haewa has built upon these roots to create a brilliantly unique sound that offers a sonic balance between utter chaos and pure bliss. Their sound encompasses unique songwriting, in depth instrumental compositions as well as pure improvisation. Combining the spirit of rock-n-roll with trance-like electronic influences, Haewa drives their audience down the road less taken, into a familiar but enlightening unknown.

STRANGE STANDARD:
