Buffalo’s Mohawk Place: Where the 2021 Shows Stand

J.M. Lesinski


Known for the intense kinetic energy in the crowds that takes place at any of their shows, Buffalo’s Mohawk Place has been hit by the COVID pandemic just as hard as many other Buffalo music institutions.

Mohawk Place recently updated their show schedules with new information regarding cancellations, postponements, and god willing, some live events still scheduled for the venue in the coming months.

Cancelled or Postponed

The FTMP event Swallow the Sun and Infected Rain in Buffalo, New York, originally scheduled for Saturday, March 20 at 6 in the evening, has been cancelled. A post by FTMP Events on the event’s Facebook stated of refunds: “We just put through a cancellation via Purplepass Ticketing, please give at least a few days for your refund to be processed. If you have any trouble getting your money back, please email us at: ForTheMusicBuffalo@Gmail.com.”

Red City Radio with special guests Decent Criminal and Dead Bars originally scheduled for Sunday, May 16 at six in the evening has been cancelled as well. According to a post on the event’s Facebook by sponsor After Dark Presents: “Unfortunately due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic and travel uncertainty, Red City Radio have cancelled their tour including their May 16, 2021 date at Mohawk Place. Refunds are available at point of purchase. Tickets purchased online will be automatically refunded by Etix within 30 business days.”

Lastly, The Sword at Mohawk Place with special guests King Buffalo has also been postponed with no new date yet given. To avoid confusion around no date having yet been chosen, sponsor After Dark Presents noted the following on the event’s Facebook:

“This event is postponed and is being rescheduled. A new date will be announced in the coming days. Tickets previously purchased will be valid at the new date. In an effort to keep this page alive where we can update everyone with the New Show info, we had to change the date of this Facebook Event to a "future date," so the page stayed active, thus us picking a fake date of December 31, 2021. Facebook doesn’t allow you to update information once the Facebook Event date has passed, so we had to pick a new date in the interim of working out the new show details. Please note, this is NOT the new show date. We repeat, this is NOT the new show date. The band is currently working on the new dates and we will be announcing the new show date for this very soon so stay tuned!”

Emo Night – Buffalo (Spring 2021 Edition) is still scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 24 at 8 in the evening.
