Canalside Buffalo has announced their summer Thursday free concert lineup. The outdoor harbor series is nestled on a gorgeous plot of land nestled up against Lake Erie. Beers a plenty will be on hand as well as some of Buffalo’s excellent food trucks and vendors. The lineup is diverse as usual bringing Buffalonians a mix of genre’s with big headliners and top notch locally based talent.
Indie darlings Matt & Kim kick things off June 6. Other acts include Spoon, Everclear, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Yonder Mountain String Band, Iron & Wine and THE En Vogue.
One of the biggest highlights here – Aug 6 Umphrey’s Mcgee will traverse the skyway to Buffalo’s Harbor Series for a free show. Touring behind their latest release – Similar Skin – UM will bring their complex compositions to Buffalo’s exploding harbor district. Joining them will be Buffalo’s fastest growing band – Aqueous. Hot off a way sold out show featuring a Cake themed set at Buffalo’s Iron Works and critical acclaim for their progressive groove rock sound, the combined draw here guarantees to pack the joint. Show up early to get a good spot – these two bands are gonna tear the place up.
