The University at Buffalo Center for the Arts will present Michael Glabicki of Rusted Root with Dirk Miller on Saturday, Feb. 4, 2023 (8 p.m.), in the Drama Theatre, located at the Center for the Arts, North Campus. Tickets are $34 or a $64 VIP ticket that includes an artist meet-and-greet and a seat close to the stage.
Glabicki is the mind and vision behind the popular and stylistic band Rusted Root. Best known for the Platinum-selling album, “When I Woke,” the band’s hit song “Send Me On My Way” launched Rusted Root into international stardom. This jubilant single is featured in over a dozen movies and TV shows, including "Matilda" and "Ice Age."
Glabicki will bring his distinct vocals and blend of acoustic folk, rock and world music in a duo performance with long-time bandmate Miller. They will take the old Rusted Root favorites along with new material and perform reenvisioned versions of them in the Drama Theatre in an up-close and intimate setting.
“We go into the crevices of the songs and expand them out and open up the music to whatever happens in the moment,” Glabicki said of his shows with Miller. “It’s completely improvisational, to the point where we surprise ourselves a lot. Things just happen, and I start laughing. It’s like we’ve never heard it sound like that before. We have a great time with it, and the audience seems to enjoy the musical exploration, too.”
Tickets can be purchased online at ticketmaster.com, ubcfa.org, michaelglabicki.com or at the Center for the Arts box office from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays. For more information, call 716-645-2787 or visit [email protected].
