Baldwinsville’s Paper Mill Island has just announced a new show to join an already impressive array of talent stopping by the Bud Light Amphitheater for summer 2018. On Friday, April 13 tickets will be available for Gary Clark, Jr.’s show which is slated for Aug. 1, marking the guitar virtuoso’s first trip to the island. A former teen prodigy in Austin’s roots music scene, Clark has grown his brand and name steadily throughout the past few years, collaborating with legends like Chuck Berry and Eric Clapton. This summer, upstate New York will finally get to see what the buzz is all about. Doors open at 6 p.m. and show starts at 7 p.m. for this all ages admitted show. Tickets can be purchased through Ticketfly beginning Friday at 10 a.m.
Clark, Jr. joins a summer lineup for Paper Mill Island that also includes other nationally known acts like Nahko and Medicine for the People, playing Wednesday, June 27, and Matisyahu, who performs on Sunday, July 22. Tickets for both of these shows are already available through Creative Concerts on their website. Earlier in the summer, the island will play host to Umphrey’s McGee and Dark Star Orchestra for their respective shows, laying the foundation of what appears to be a special summer of music.
