Bands on the Bricks is back this summer at Rochester’s Public Market. The free Friday evening concert series kicks off at the Union Street location on July 8, and this year’s lineup includes Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, Donna the Buffalo, Turkuaz and Aqueous, among others.
The concert series welcomes July with an opening evening show dubbed Latino Night, created in partnership with the local Puerto Rican Festival, followed by Three Heads Brewing Night on July 15 with Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad and Rochester’s own Suburban Plaza. July 22 is the Food Truck BBQ Contest for the Rohrbach Brewing Company Night with Cats Under the Stars: A Jerry Garcia Band Tribute and Flour City’s Subsoil, before Donna the Buffalo headlines on July 29 and Turkuaz with the Buffalo-based rock group Aqueous on Aug. 5.
Bands On the Bricks takes place from 6 to 10 p.m. every Friday starting July 8 and ending Aug. 5 at the City of Rochester’s Public Market — seating is limited, so don’t forget your folding chair. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., and remember, no shoes, no shirt, no entry.
