Avi Buffalo play Reading Festival without keyboardist

Band stage one of their first shows without Rebecca Coleman

Avi Buffalo played Reading Festival today (August 27), one of their first shows without keyboardist Rebecca Coleman.

The Californian group performed as a three-piece following Coleman‘s departure earlier this month.

Playing a selection of tracks from their self-titled debut album, the band, led by vocalist and guitarist Avigdor Zahner-Isenberg, easily made enough noise to cover up the keyboardist’s absence, rocking up a number of their songs with noise codas and ambient interludes.


The band seemed thrilled to be playing, grinning at each other throughout and repeatedly thanking the audience for coming.

Avi Buffalo played:

‘What’s It In For?’
‘Summer Cum’
‘Five Little Sluts’
‘Can’t I Know?’
‘One Last’
