I've had people ask the status on this monstrosity of a birthday party I'm planning to throw for myself (since I'm vain). I have an update today, so I'm going to let you in on it today.
The show will be the first of many I plan to do as a showcase of local bands and others from the surrounding areas. This is the virgin show, so I want it to be HUGE, which means anyone who follows this little blog should probably be there, even if you only come for one band.
Speaking of bands, here's the confirmed line-up, and there is truly something for everyone, unless you're into rap, 'cause I'm not going there: Chris Unck opening up to cover the singer/songwriter genre, Beggars' Guild to cover the folk/classic rock genre, League of Evil to cover the "indie" rock genre, and (I'm so super excited about this I could pee myself) Rantings of Eva to cover the alt/pop-rock genre. There may be another band added to this line-up, I'm not sure yet. If they can't play, then this will be the line-up. Period.
It will take place on Friday, December 29th, so save the money from your Christmas stocking for cover...which I don't know what that's going to be just yet. It won't be anything more than you'd pay for a regular night.
As a sidenote, I'd like to also announce that since I will be doing this on a regular basis, I would like to take submissions from bands to play future showcases. I have bands in mind that I would like to have, but I'm also trying to do this where I see new stuff. So, if you're interested, or know an act that would be interested in playing, check out the MySpace and message me, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
