I discovered two of my favorite bands — Yarn and Will Overman Band — at the annual Rooster Walk Music and Arts Festival just outside Martinsville, Virginia. Rooster Walk 9 is set for May 25-28, 2017. Yarn, a perennial favorite will be there, but unfortunately, Will Overman Band will not. Rooster Walk needs to work on that for RW10.
From the good folks over at LOCKN’:
“Dreams are getting closer to reality! We’re super excited to announce the 12 semi-finalists from the Rockn’ to LOCKN’ fan vote!
“Congrats to Anthony Rosano & the Conqueroos, The Atkinsons, Big Mama Shakes, Mighty Joshua, Sun Dried Opossum, Kendall Street Company, Adar, Will Overman Band, Galaxy Dynamite, Devil’s Workshop Big Band, FeelFree, and Virginia Man.

A friend asked me recently what my secret is to discovering some of the great new music out there. My answer was easy and immediate: Music festivals. The key to discovering new music is to search out the bands that you have never heard or heard of, those tiny names at the bottom of the poster.
Two of Virginia’s hottest up-and-coming alt folk rock bands — Annabelle’s Curse and Will Overman Band — will light up the stage at Charlotte’s The Evening Muse in NODA on Saturday, Oct. 22. Tickets for the late-night show that begins at 10:30 (Doors open at 10) are only $5. Trust me when I say you need to catch these bands at this price while you still can because you won’t be disappointed.
