On Tuesday, August 20th, The Aquarium welcomes Buffalo, NY hip hop artist, Chuckie Campbell, and his 6-piece live band (with a full horn section), The Black Den, as they trek across country on The Beats and Brass Tour. Joining Campbell will be some of your finest in local support — hosted by Cold Sweat and other performances by Jantzonia and Postwar — for a night filled with fluid instrumentation, lush musical arrangements, and heartfelt poetic nuance
In 2018, Campbell was A3C’s This Is My Year Contest Winner and took home an All WNY Music Award for Best Hip Hop Artist. His most recent album, Taking Back Tomorrow, was released to critical acclaim and features Talib Kweli, Ras Kass, Nicole Atkins, Heidi Feek, and more. Campbell and his live band, The Black Den, have touched 46 states and two countries (Canada and Costa Rica), attended A3C as official artists (the largest hip hop music conference in the United States), and played SXSW (the largest music festival of its kind in the world).
The night promises to be a special one! Doors open at 7:30pm and the music won’t stop until 11pm. This show is Free! 21+ to enter. Don’t miss this dynamic, powerful line up of emerging and established artists at the one and only, The Aquarium!
