Even though Griselda isn't coming through Buffalo, lots of artists are! T-Pain will be at the Outer Harbor on May 29. Mya, The Whispers, Joe, Fred Hammond, Bobby V, and other artists will be at the University United Festival, on June 11 and 12. And the New York State Fair (which isn't in Buffalo), has a pretty nice lineup. It's looking like our summer concert options are pretty good this year!
