Aqueous Band Kicks Off Social Distancing Concert Series
Buffalo Iron Works music venue and The Transit Drive-In in Lockport are teaming up to bring the WNY community a summer concert series that will kick off on June 19 & 20 with a performance by Aqueous, a groove rock band native to Buffalo. These socially distanced concerts will be a unique experience not to be missed.
Gates will open at 1pm both days with the shows starting at 2pm. GA tickets are $40 per person and VIP are $80 per person, which includes a ticket to the show, a vehicle spot in the front two rows, and a limited edition poster. All ticketing will be through internet pre-sale only, and tickets need to be purchased for all occupants of each vehicle under one transaction. A minimum of two people per vehicle must be purchased, with a maximum set at six.
While many people in our community and throughout the world have been enjoying Internet live streams during quarantine, Buffalo Iron Works hopes to bring a whole new concept to a socially-distanced concert experience. Social distancing guidelines and Covid-19 safety will be taken very seriously and can be found by following this link.
The “Live at the Drive” series plans for two concerts a week through August and future concerts will be announced in the weeks to come. The aim is to do a 16-show series. Thursday nights will be a concert and movie combo night, and Saturdays will be the afternoon concerts only. The timing of the shows will be a change of pace as well, as hosting of artists will fall in a 2pm – 5pm window. Reason is twofold: first, we need to limit the length of the show for safety and bathroom use; second, we need time to tear down our production and turn things back over for nightly movies.
“We’re thrilled to bring drive-in concerts to the WNY music community. People are itching for live music and while getting together in a room or even outdoors won’t be a safe option for the foreseeable future, we are hopeful that this is our most desirable option for those looking to see a live show,” says Josh Holtzman, partner of Buffalo Iron Works and Co-Founder of “Live at the Drive.” The series will exclusively feature local and regional bands, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit local charities.
Tickets to “Live at the Drive” can be purchased through the Transit Drive-In website.
