The Goo Goo Dolls are coming back to Buffalo for a special concert to benefit an important cause.

The hometown band is headlining a sold-out show at Rockwell Hall on the Buffalo State Campus on April 16th called "Artists for Autism." The performance will benefit the Institute for Autism Research at Canisius College.

Mary Ramsey of the 10,000 Maniacs and singer-songwriter Cassandra Kubinski are also scheduled to perform.

The concert is the brainchild of music producer Armand Petri. His son, AJ, is autistic and took part in one of the program's at the Institute for Autism Research. The show will allow Petri to raise awareness and give back to a center that has helped improve his son's social and communication skills.

While tickets are no longer available, proceeds from CD sales and downloads of Kubinski's new single "Not So Different" will benefit the institute. The song will be available on iTunes and Google Play on April 15. The following day Kubinski and John Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls will be signing CD copies of the song at Record Theatre on Main Street in Buffalo.

Canisius College is working with the Music Industry Program at SUNY Fredonia to bring these events to life.
