Local long time rock radio station 95X is putting on the 95X-Fest this Sunday at the F-Shed located in the Farmers Market on Syracuse’s Northside with a mix of local and national acts. The show celebrates 35 years in the Syracuse market and offers up 22 bands for $22. The station is excited for the event and has been featuring free shows all summer at Quaker Steak & Lube with several national acts. The day long show features two stages; the Stanley Law Office/ Music For The Mission stage and the Empire Tractor stage. Bands, stages, and set times listed on a photo in the slide-show.
95X program director Joe DeTomaso had this to say:
95X is in its 35th year and stronger than ever. We’re really excited about the return of 95X FEST. We’ve been working on bringing X FEST back for the past couple of years and are planning to make it an annual event.
I spoke with Blake Allison of Devour The Day on the band, how they came to be from the ashes of Egypt Central, the bands debut album, touring and more. I will be speaking with them and several bands on Sunday at the show.
You can listen in to the interview along with some tunes in the video.
The band has a cool vibe that is fresh, rocks, and shows off their growing talent as writers and composers. They can roc k with the best of them and turn on a dime with acoustics and melodies that simply blow you away. They also have become fast fan favorites at live shows so the best way to get a feel for them is truly to see them onstage doing their thing.
