A weekend of music in Sinclairville
Sinclairville, New York and local rap artist Keith Concept will host a three-day festival, Donnaroo, June 13-15, sponsored by Electric Avenue and Doap Records of Buffalo. The name is lifted from the famed music festival Bonnaroo, but this is a wonder of its own, chock full of nonstop local bands, DJs, comedians, and odds-and-ends acts. The festival takes its first step on Frosty Thursday (June 13) at 6:30pm, keeps on to Funky Fresh Friday (June 14), and rolls into Illuminati Saturday (June 15).
Sinclairville is a good hour’s drive from Buffalo (due south of Fredonia), but Donnaroo is well worth your while, with more than 40 performances. Pre-sale tickets are priced at $30, and tickets are $40 at the gate. Saturday-only tickets are $20. With the purchase of your Donnaroo ticket, you will receive a free Donnaroo 2013 T-shirt. Additional Donnaroo T-shirts are $10. Bring a little spending money for take-home items at Stereo Roots Clothing and Even Anythings custom hula hoops, which will be open all three days, and for the R&R BBQ truck, which will be at the festival on Saturday from 4pm to midnight. $1 pizza slices will be served Saturday afternoon.
Tickets are available for purchase at Electric Avenue sports bar (300 Ellicott Street), Headspace Glass and Gifts (67 Elmwood Avenue), and both Record Theater locations on Main Street.
