Throwback Thursday: Rockin' at the Knox 2008 with the B-52s and Metric

June 22, 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 September 27, 2008, Rockin' at the Knox featured headliners the B-52s, who had released a new album, Funplex, earlier that year. Metric and Ben Lee also rocked the outdoor stage, while the special exhibition Op Art Revisited was on view inside the museum.
