A red carpet premiere will take place Thursday at Buffalo’s North Park Theater.
BUFFALO, NY – Two natives of western New York are back in Buffalo to promote their new music video.
“It’s called ‘Pigs in the Sky’. It’s the first single off my new album, and we wanted to do something big, and Mac and I have been talking for years and years, but we never still working on a project together,” said Nick Chiari.
Western New York native Nick Chiari, known in the electronic dance music world as Grabbitz, brings the world premiere of his latest music video to Buffalo’s North Park Theater this Thursday.
“Mac just really killed it in the movie business, and I’m off to Los Angeles to do my thing in the music business. We kind of just conceptualized this video, and it took us a while to do, and basically we’re going to premiere it in Buffalo with a red carpet event,” Chiari said.
Mac is Mac Cappuccino. He directed the video and says North Park is the perfect location for what will be an immersive musical experience.
“It’s about Buffalonians doing like something that I think is actually very close to a work of art, like it’s pretty, pretty smooth, but it wouldn’t have been done without Buffalonians” , said Mac Cappuccino.
“We both kind of ended up in Buffalo after the whole pandemic and we realized that we’d just like to bring our arts back to the city, and kind of combine for this great duo and really bring so much love into the city we could,” Chiari said.
Grabbitz says all proceeds from tickets sold at Thursday’s premier will go to Music is Art and Buffalo State’s film and arts program.
“You can just see a lot of things bubbling. There’s a really strong hip-hop scene in Buffalo. There’s always been a strong rock scene here in Buffalo. And then, you know, I’ve very personally experienced the growth dance and electronic dance music community here in Buffalo, so I really think there’s a lot more opportunities ahead,” Chiari said.
Cappuccino added: “They don’t just come here because it’s the tax credit, they come here because the people who work here do a good job. You know what I mean? Like, this doesn’t is just not replaceable. Like, you come to Buffalo and you have a good experience.”
Grabbitz also does a live acoustic performance at the premiere.
