Here’s an additional bit that was meant for yesterday’s Slumgullion column.
Palatine’s Hometown Fest 2012, which is once again being sponsored by the village’s Jaycees, kicked off Friday night and will run through July 4th. Around 18 music acts are on this year’s roster for the Fred P. Hall Amphitheater.
Stockwood, the Beatles tribute band comprised of boys in their late teens (see Archives, February 13th, 2012 for my review of a show they did at Durty Nellie’s) will perform Sunday, July 1st at 5:00 PM. I’ve never seen New Vinyl Experience, but the name’s intriguing, and judging from their website, they perform a nice mix of classic rock by Santana, Petty, Bad Company, ZZ Top, along with some original tunes. They go on at 4:30 Tuesday afternoon.
Other acts scheduled through Tuesday evening include Stay Tuned, Whiskey Tango, Piano Man, Twenty Over, Darryl Markette, Mellencougar, and Bucket Number 6. See the Hometown Fest website for more information.
