I took the liberty of booking two nights at The High Noon Saloon and The Frequency on the weekend before Valentine's Day (Feb 11th, & 12th respectively) to throw an event intended to honor all of the local bands - past and present - that have worked so hard and kept things buzzing in this town over the years. It's not intended to be a be-all-end-all "best Madison bands of all time" showcase or some sort of elitist scenester clique get together, so please don't go there. I just want to party with you guys. I'm calling it Local Love Fest, and here's how it's going to go down:
1- Eight local bands (TBA) will perform. Four each night.
2- All of the bands will perform sets containing covers of their favorite local songs.
3- We're hoping to get two retired local bands to reunite and play some of our old favorites (this is proving to be kind of a tall order, so we'll see).
4- We're putting together a limited run EVENT ONLY compilation CD of local bands covering other local bands and we'll be handing them out with every paid admission to the show.
I am looking for bands interested in participating in the compilation, so if your band wants to submit a cover of one of your favorite local songs shoot me an email: droidsattack at aol dot com. I'd like to get everyone who wants to participate in on it, so hit me up. Any questions or concerns, please post them here.
