Still StandingMusic

Still Standing & Friends Benefit Concert

River Music Experience

Saturday, August 22, 1:30 – 9:15 p.m.

 

“When we started this band,” says Still Standing co-founder/guitarist Justin Young, “we decided that we didn’t want to just make music that we love. We also wanted to reach out and make a positive impact on our community.” On August 22, Young and his bandmates will be doing just that, and have recruited some friends to help. Actually, many, many, many friends.

Devon AllmanMusic

Devon Allman

Redstone Room

Friday, August 14, 8:30 p.m.

 

Considering the 42-year-old has spent his entire career forging his own musical path, and considering he didn’t even meet the über-famous Gregg until he was 15, blues rocker Devon Allman can hardly be accused of riding his father’s coattails. That said, when you hear Devin’s soulful blues growl during August 14’s Redstone Room concert, and witness his mad guitar skills, you’ll likely concede that there’s something to be said for genetics. As someone who, from his own dad, merely inherited a proclivity for inappropriate singing and the complete lack of an ass, I gotta say I’m envious.

Yonatan GatMusic

Yonatan Gat

Rozz-Tox

Thursday, July 23, 9 p.m.

 

On July 23, Rock Island’s Rozz-Tox will host an evening of thrillingly eclectic power rock with the New York-based trio led by guitarist/composer Yonatan Gat. According to TheFireNote.com, Gat displays “unhinged creativity ... with a tone that fits somewhere between Jimi Hendrix and Carlos Santana.” Meanwhile, NYPress.com writes, “Gat’s Jimi-Hendrix-meets-Godzilla guitar tone is the instrument by which the band brings the arena-rock experience within your immediate reach.” I’m consequently thinking that Gat will be treating the Rozz-Tox crowd to some serious Jimi Hendrix action. That, and maybe a chorus of “Evil Ways” while kicking the crap out of Mothra.

N.E.D.Event

girlpARTs Fest

Schwiebert Riverfront Park

Saturday, July 11, 4-10 p.m.

 

Designed to raise awareness and funds for gynecologic- and ovarian-cancer education programs, the Norma Leah Ovarian Cancer Foundation’s inaugural girlpARTs Fest takes place on July 11 at Rock Island’s Schwiebert Riverfront Park, and the event’s headliners are the alternative folk rockers of N.E.D. You could probably make a strong argument for the musicians composing our country’s smartest touring ensemble. Or, in the spirit of the festival, the smARTest.
