"Tonight: Autopunch, The B Side Dubs, and Cosmic Shakedown"

"Adieu to Lafayette Square for now"

Local bands have continued to have prominence as opening acts. For many of the bands it's been a dream come true. "It meant the world to us to play there," said Luke Hammill of the rock band Autopunch, which opened for Morris Day and [the] Time on June 9.

"When we first started about two years ago, that was one of the goals we had. It's about as high as you can go in playing a local show. I've seen some of my favorite bands there, and now I can say my band played there too," Hammill said. - The Buffalo News

A Buffalo, N.Y. rock-and-roll band whose sound has been described by The Buffalo News as "a disarmingly inventive hybrid of soul, psychedelia, funk, alt-rock and good ol’ jamming."

In 2011, the band released a self-titled 6-song EP, earned an opening slot at Downtown Buffalo's weekly Thursday at the Square concert series, and traveled as far west as Cleveland, as far north as Montreal, as far east as Glens Falls, and as far south as Jamestown to perform.

AUTOPUNCH was also featured on the 2011 Best of Buffalo compilation album and was buffaBLOG's choice for Best Rock Band in the 2011 WBNY Music Awards. In early 2012, the band released its first full-length album, SONGS.
