Tickets ($26-$30) go on sale at noon Dec. 8 through the Town Ballroom box office and

Snapcase performed last in Buffalo for its 25th anniversary show in February 2016 - see photos of the band and fans here - while another memorable recent gig came when opening for Dropkick Murphys at Buffalo's Outer Harbor.

Here's an excerpt from that 2012 review:

"This Buffalo-born band is widely considered to be one of the progenitors of hard core in the Northeast, and based on [the 2012] show, it's easy to understand why. Blending the influence of Washington, D.C.'s hard-core scene - Fugazi in particular - the band took the stage with a serious attitude and then proceeded to leave everything the band members had on that wooden plank."
