Alton Main Street is gearing up for the Big Gig Music Show in about a month, and has announced the bands that will take part in the show.  Six bands from around the River Bend, and the St. Louis region, will perform along with headlining group Aaron Kamm and the One Drops.  The show takes place at the Riverfront Amphitheater Friday September 28.
