One of downtown’s most anticipated live music series is kicking off on June 9 (5pm-8pm). Thursday & Main – the Buffalo Place-produced free outdoor summer series at Fountain Plaza will be exceptionally terrific this year, not only because of the band line-up, but also because Flint Kitchen + Bar is now open.
This relatively new weekly concert series – presented by M&T Bank – is Buffalo Place’s answer to the beloved Thursday at the Square series, which relocated to the waterfront.
Per usual, the “free and open-to-the-public happy hour” music series features a great cross-sections of music acts, starting with Ron Hawkins (of Lowest of the Low) as the season opener. The entire line-up is just as strong, with tons of crowd pleasers.
Aside from the selection of music acts, and the happy hour atmosphere, the setting is second to none. It’s a slice of downtown life, with water features, seating arrangements, and a wonderful Main Street vibe. This is definitely something that we can all look forward to.
Here’s the lineup of bands to check off on your calendar:
- Thursday, June 9: Ron Hawkins (of Lowest of the Low) special guests Geno McManus & Zak Ward
- Thursday, June 16: The Strictly Hip with special guest 77 Stone
- Thursday, June 23: Handsome Jack with special guest Matt Smith’s Nervous System
