R&B/HIP-HOP | Rochester Summerfest 

It seemed for a while that the Rochester Music Fest (now called Rochester Summerfest) had died off with the Johnson administration. Weak line-ups and a lack of focus all but killed the once-huge summer event. But it looks like it's back. There's some heavy hitters on this bill in the hip-hop/R&B scene. Something for everyone — even the big kids. The event kicks off Thursday, July 11, 6 p.m. with a Day Party featuring J-Holiday at One (1 Ryan Alley), then continues with soul legends The Whispers Friday, July 12, 7:30 p.m. at the Auditorium Theatre (885 E. Main St.). The music moves to Blue Cross Arena (1 War Memorial Square) on Saturday, July 13, 7:30 p.m. for a modern r'n'b line-up featuring TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine, Tank), Kelly Rowland, Fabolous, and Chrisette Michele. And then it wraps up Sunday, July 14, for the All-White Affair at Max at High Falls (60 Browns Race). Tickets vary for each event; check rochestersummerfest.com for more information.
