Popular for family-friendly events like Dino Daze and Bubblefest, the Buffalo Museum of Science is dabbling as a concert host, welcoming Lowest of the Low lead singer-songwriter Ron Hawkins for a show on March 24.
Tickets run for $22.50 and include access to Buffalo Museum of Science related exhibitions "Guitar: The Instrument that Rocked the World" and "71Picks," which features a collection of local music memorabilia. Doors open at 6 p.m. at 1020 Humboldt Pkwy, and tickets can be purchased here.
Although he's no stranger to performing in Buffalo, the Canadian Hawkins keeps churning out music and scheduling appearances here, including back-to-back shows, one with the full band in Town Ballroom and one solo in Leopard Lounge, last April.
“Every time [we] come to Buffalo, it’s always the same,” said Hawkins in an interview with Michael Farrell before the April visit. “We get the same vibe and are welcomed with open arms. Everybody in the place [is] singing all the lyrics, and there’s just a real blood brother/blood sister relationship we have with Buffalo. It isn’t the same anywhere else, and it isn’t the same in any Canadian city, either.”
