Thursday at the Square 2011 Schedule (and RTH)

16 nights of music, 26 national acts, 18 Grammy Awards, and 27 Junos! In its 25th year we see a lot of Canadian acts coming to Thursday at the Square (Lafayette Square and Main St). I hope our wonderful friends up North will bring a lot of loonies to Buffalo with them when they come visit. 
 
At the Buffalo Place news conference in North American Breweries Labatt USA world headquarters Michael Schmand, Vice President and Executive Director of Buffalo Place, mentioned that these are exciting times in downtown Buffalo.
 
Tony Colucci III, President and Vice Chairman of Buffalo Place, was his usual witty and enthusiastic self. He said “Artie and Donnie are back!” Artie Kwitchoff and Donny Kutzbach, of Funtime Presents, are the dynamic duo that regularly bring the hippest music in Western New York to the Town Ballroom. They used to book The Square acts, and now they have returned.
 
Here is the early Thursday at the Square schedule, headliners listed first, openers listed later:
 
June 2  Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros

June 9 Morris Day and the Time

June 16 Blues Traveler with special guest Willie Nile

June 23 Grace Potter & the Nocturnals with special guest FItz & the Tantrums
 
Then, something totally new… Thursday at the Rectangle (nice one Tony!)… The Square moves to the waterfront venue, Buffalo’s gorgeous Eric Canal Harbor Central Wharf for the remaining six weeks, with:
 
June 30 Lowest of the Low with special guests Hey Rosetta! – and Ron Hawkins and the Do Good Assassins

July 7 Sloan

July 14 Court Yard Hounds

July 21 Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes

July 28 George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic
