The Station, a Springfield, Ill., rock band, will return to the Quad-Cities on Friday, May 21, for a special Summer Camp Music Festival Pre-Party at Rock Island Brewing Co., 1815 2nd Ave.|
Since The Station's last visit to RIBCO about a year ago, the band has been signed by Planet Playground Records and taken home such accolades as "2009's Best Original Band" by the Illinois Times and "2009 Live Album of the Year" by independent distributor Homegrown Music Network.
"The booty-shaking-rock-fist-pumping quartet, well known for their electrifying and visually titillating dance-rock live show, is gearing up for a summer full of festivals," according to band member Dave Carter. That includes its eighth straight appearance at Jay Goldberg's Summer Camp Music Festival, taking place Memorial Day weekend at Three Seasons Park in Chillicothe, outside Peoria. That festival features five stages and 100 bands, headlined by Umphrey's McGee and moe.
The May 21 show at RIBCO starts at 9 p.m. with a performance by Chicago's Jaik Willis, recent winner of Summer Camp's "Your Facebook Your Festival" contest. According to Chicago Jams, Jaik "has wandered around the USA like a modern minstrel, surfing sofas, car-camping, and paying dues to sing the blues."
"He does very musical, very high-energy shows," Mr. Carter said. He described The Station as "driving rock, with a good dance beat behind it."
Tickets for the RIBCO concert are $6 at the door. For more information, visit TheStationMusic.com.
