Hot 5: Music is Art



The Music is Art Festival is now nine years old, which makes it just about ready to enter the fourth grade. For the last three years, the grounds of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery have been home to the festival’s wonderful mix of bands, artists, photographers, DJs, dancers, not-for-profit representatives, food vendors, and kids village performers. MiA’s very worthy goal is to help boost music’s cultural and educational impact in WNY; as Goo Goo Doll bassist and MiA founder Robby Takac told Spree last year, “There’s a distinct proportion of the population for whom music is their world. Without the ability to nurture those talents, I think you’re really squelching someone’s ability to grow.” But for the 15,000 or so attendees each year, it’s about enjoying truly great local music, too. Hear the Goos of tomorrow, today.

10 a.m.–11 p.m. on Saturday, September 17, on the grounds of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, 1285 Elmwood Ave.; 880-3375 or www.musicisart.org.
