6 Shows to See Live at Rapids Theatre This October


Fozzy

October has arrived and with it a whole new slew of shows to see at Rapids Theatre. With its authentic 1920’s style and location positioned right in the hub of Niagara Falls’ busiest neighborhood, Rapids Theatre is one of those Western New York concert venues offering show after show you’ll want to see. Hosting bands from all types of genres and walks of life — ranging from punk to indie pop to American rock — Rapids Theatre has got the goods, just check out who’s playing this month:

 

 

1. FOZZY

Openers: Gemini syndrome, The stir, and Optic Oppression

Fozzy has always been about a heavy groove and a good time. And when you have two high-energy performers like Rich Ward and Chris Jericho (it’s debatable on who jumps higher onstage) in the band, grooves and good times come easy; but these guys aren’t just entertainers. Ward is one of the most versatile and underrated riffers in rock and metal today, who has created his own style of heavy riffs, melodic choruses and the Duke groove…oh that crushing groove!

When: October 3, 2017

Doors: 6:00 p.m., Show: 7:00 p.m.

Price: Tickets $18.00 advance, $23.00 day of show (if available)

I Prevail

3. I Prevail

Openers: We Came As Romans, The Word Alive, Escape The Fate

Certain moments in life change everything. The trajectory splinters, and there’s no turning back. I Prevail—Brian Burkheiser [clean vocals], Eric Vanlerberghe [harsh vocals], Steve Menoian [guitar], Dylan Bowman [rhythm guitar] —explore this phenomenon within the title of their full-length debut, Lifelines [Fearless Records]. “When we started diving into the record, we all sat down and thought, ‘Wow, everything has changed in the last year,’” explains Brian. “Everyone encounters those moments that really define where the rest of their lives are headed. We’ve all grown from everything that’s happened. When we sat down and got to work, we really wanted to share our journey through these songs.”

When: October, 16 2017

Price:  $25.00 advance, $30.00 day of show (if available)

Flogging Molly

6. Flogging Molly

Openers: Anti Flag, Jon Snodgrass
