Throwback Thursday: Rockin' at the Knox 2005 with Wilco and My Morning Jacket

June 1, 2017

To celebrate the return of Rockin' this year on June 29 we're looking back at the first five installments of the popular outdoor concert.

On June 29, 2005, the Albright-Knox presented the first expanded installment of Rockin' at the Knox, featuring Wilco and My Morning Jacket playing to thousands of fans in the museum's parking lot. Local bands The Juliet Dagger and The Last Conservative opened the show, and the event also featured art and music organized by Robbie Takac of the Goo Goo Dolls.
