Fresh off its well-deserved induction last week into the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame — where it joined the likes of Ani DiFranco, Willie Nile and the Goo Goo Dolls — moe. returns to rock your ass into the jamoe.sphere. Or thereabouts.

It hardly seems possible that moe. has been plying its Zappa-by-way-of-Southern-Rock- with-a-twist-of-Dead improvisation triangulation on the Jam circuit for close to 20 years now, but calendars and catalogs don’t lie. And the amazing thing about moe. is that, except for a few brief years in the ’90s when they were signed to Sony, the band has primarily done things its way as a strictly independent band: starting its own label, Fatboy Records; releasing well over a dozen albums on its own (including the latest studio effort, last year’s Sticks and Stones, six volumes in its "Warts and All" concert collection, a trio of "Instant Live" editions and a couple of multi-disc volumes of its latest live series, Dr. Stan’s Prescription); and becoming relentless road dogs with a special emphasis on festivals.
