When’s the last time you gathered up a crew and went to go see some live music?

Woah.

For me, it hurts my brain to try and remember when I last went to a concert. Thankfully we’ve got Taste of Country coming up to ease our pain, but we’ve also got some sweet live music to put on our calendars this summer in Buffalo thanks to the just-announced return of the Thursday & Main concert series.

Kicking off June 9th and running through the end of July, every Thursday night at the Rotary Rink at Fountain Plaza, you can treat yourself to free (!) live music right in the heart of Chippewa and Main Street downtown. Be sure to bring at least a little bit of money with you though, because you can also feast on some of Buffalo’s famous food trucks (and maybe a beer or two? It is Thursday after all, so you may be thirsty). Start texting your friends and planning your crew.

Check out the lineup of acts performing this summer at Thursday & Main:

June 9, 2022 - Ron Hawkins (of Lowest of the Low) with Geno McManus & Zak Ward

June 16, 2022 - The Strictly Hip with 77 Stone

June 23, 2022 - Handsome Jack with Matt Smith’s Nervous System

June 30, 2022 -  Willie Nile with Leroy Townes

July 7, 2022 - Farrow with David Jonathan & the Inner City Bedlam
