Daptone-signed instrumental band Budos Band will celebrate New Year's Eve in their hometown of NYC with shows at Knitting Factory on 12/30 and NYE. Both are with heavy retro rockers Electric Citizen opening. Tickets (including a two-night pass option) go on sale Friday (10/20) at noon.

Budos Band also play the NYC-area opening for Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats at the Capitol Theatre on 12/9. That's part of a two-night stand at that venue for Rateliff, which also includes a show the following night (12/10) with a solo set from Anders Osborne. The show with Budos Band is sold out but tickets are available for the show with Anders.

Budos Band's only other upcoming date is Florida's Et Cultura festival with Slowdive, Son Volt, Waxahatchee, Cloud Nothings, and more.

Budos Band started out as a jazz/funk band but their latest album, 2014's Burnt Offering, took their sound into proto-metal territory. They later backed the late Charles Bradley on his cover of Black Sabbath's "Changes."
