This coming Wednesday, August 31, WZZO will return to the Great Allentown Fair for its 28th Annual Backyard Bands Competition… and the Valley’s Rock Station has selected quite a lineup!
Local acts Acoustic Kitty Project, Another Day Dawns, The Beautiful Distortion, Monoceros, and September Silence will take the RCN Farmerama Theater stage at the Allentown Fairgrounds beginning at 8 p.m. that night for a chance to win more than $6,500 in prizes. Music industry professionals will also be on-hand, making this a huge opportunity for five local bands looking to take their careers to the next level.
When reached for comment, Acoustic Kitty Project frontman Carter Lansing explained to LVU that he has long coveted the opportunity to showcase his and his band’s abilities on the Backyard Bands stage.
“I spend a lot of time trying to avoid judges. This time, they’re alright with me,” Lansing said. “I’ve wanted to play this gig for probably 23 years, and I’m thrilled that they like my music enough to put me in the running with these other great bands!”
