Rockin’ at the Knox 2019

Sunday, Jun. 16th

Rockin’ is BACK! Western New York’s favorite summer event returns to the Albright-Knox. Join us for a spectacular festival of music and art.   Rockin’ 2019 will  be headlined by Death Cab for Cutie -an American alternative rock band formed in Bellingham, Washington, in 1997. Death Cab for Cutie rose from being a side project to becoming one of the most exciting groups on the indie rock scene of the 2000s, with their emotive songwriting and cross-genre sound landing somewhere between indie and emo.

Gates will open at 4 pm, and all tickets include entry to the museum from 4 to 7 pm.

Christian Lopez at the 9th Ward

Monday, Jun. 17th
$10 – $12; 7pm Doors, 8pm Show

With the will of his voice and the stomp of a steady beat, Christian Lopez and his band are pioneering their own brand of Alt. Folk Country Rock. Like a young Whitman, Lopez translates the iconic America before him into rousing romps and searing serenades employing crisp and thoughtful imagery and storytelling. He takes listeners on a heartfelt rampage through emotion, energy and excitement caring less about the hook then hooking them in with the range and passion in his voice.
