Before the big Western & Southern/WEBN fireworks show on the Ohio River this Sunday, local Alt and Pop radio stations The Project 100.7/106.3 FM and Kiss 107.1 FM are hosting one of their “Just Show Up Show” concerts. It's basically a free mini music festival featuring AltPop and AltRock bands from all over North America.
Music takes place at Sawyer Point Park beginning at 1:30 p.m. (gates open at noon). Artists scheduled to appear are Sir Sly, Arkells, Madison Beer, Fitness, Loote, The Orphan The Poet, Silent Rival and Liberty Deep Down.
Canada’s Arkells recently announced a new album, Rally Cry, which is due for release in October. Canada has some high hopes for the group’s chances for even bigger success this year. Here’s the first single from the forthcoming LP.
Sir Sly had a breakthrough year in 2017, thanks to the success of their Don’t You Worry, Honey album and its single “&Run.”
