Morton Stanley Festival THIS WEEKEND!

Local Happenings (Time Sensitive): MORTON STANLEY FESTIVAL

Good morning! YES, IT IS EARLY!

Well, now that I am totally awake (WHO does a radio show at 5am?), I am adding the LOCAL EVENTS that are happening in REDDITCH, WORCESTERSHIRE this weekend.

Listen to internet radio with Art News Magazine on Blog Talk Radio

It’s all kicking off at Morton Stanley Park this Friday Night. (17th August 2012).

This will be LOCAL BAND NIGHT:

There are a few local bands that I wished would have been on the list (Sugar Mama, Twelfth Wreck and others) but it will still be enjoyable, with the line-up I have seen.

The first performance is by PYT @ 6pm and then from 6:20-11pm is a great line-up of local bands.

The list includes:

Endorphins, Heinz-Sight, More For Me, Departure, SharksVsBears, Thirteen Shots, The Angry Bombs, Khaos Theory, Hyde, Cathodes, A Poetic Yesterday, Thunder Lion, The Callout, StakeOut.
