Oil Region Indie Fest 3

This year's Oil Region Indie Music and Art Fest had a good, good feel, very hands-on -- happy people of all ages playing and singing in corners, on stages, on the sidewalk. The guys who were on stage an hour ago could be seen playing with their fans. And it wasn't just hands-on music -- hands-on pottery, stained glass, chalk, ceramic tiles. . . lots of creative people expressing themselves all up and down the street and in the Open Studios of the National Transit Building. We didn't need any of our rain options (indoor jam areas), there was plenty of good food, thanks to the cooperation of the Northside Business Association, and the sun shone all day long. We couldn't have asked for a better day or a better crowd!

Oil Region Indie Music and Art Festival 2009

Long, long time between posts -- and lots of activity outside the studio in Oil City, PA. Next Saturday, join us for the third annual Oil Region Indie Music and Art Festival. We have moved it this year to Seneca Street and joined forces with the first Summer Saturday Street Fair. That means from 2:00 to 9:00 there will be food, vendors, stuff for the kids -- and original music all day on two stages. If you play and sing, pick a corner and set up and perform -- in the Transit Building, in the Annex, wherever.

Stained glass and pottery demos will be going on, reiki massage, a drum circle, and artists will be showing their work indoors and out.
The event will be held rain or shine -- but let's hope for shine!
