The 6th Annual BIG GIG Local Music Show is set for Saturday, July 26 in Downtown Alton. Six local bands will be featured in the concert, which will be headlined by Aaron Kamm and the One Drops. Organizers are soliciting entries which must be postmarked by Thursday of this week or hand-delivered by Friday.
Sara McGibany, Executive Director of Alton Main Street, says musicians from all genres should consider submitting and says six local bands will be selected from among those who enter.
The band that generates the most supportive crowd will be invited to perform a set of their original music during the Mississippi Earthtones Festival in September.
Entry forms may be downloaded from the events page at DowntownAlton.com. They must be postmarked by Thursday of this week or hand delivered to the Alton Main Street office by close of business Friday. For more information, contact McGibany at 463-1016.
