Long-time Buffalo favorite Sam Roberts Band is ready to end the year on a high note as it makes its latest local appearance at 7 p.m. Dec. 30 in the Town Ballroom (681 Main St.).
The rootsy Canadian pop-rock outfit has played venues both large and small in town, from New World Records (RIP) to Canalside, since sharing its popular debut album "We Were Born in a Flame" way back in 2003.
Like fellow Northern acts the Tragically Hip and the Arkells, Sam Roberts and crew have become a major draw in the Queen City while maintaining some form of cult status pretty much everywhere else in the states. The Juno Award winning act's latest record, the genre-hopping "Terraform," was released in October of 2016.
Tickets are $30 in advance and will go on sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 17 (box office, Ticketfly.com or charge by phone at 877-987-6487). Further event details can be found here.
