On Saturday, July 19, we're gonna be taking over a large chunk of Lowest Greenville to bring you 31 of the best acts in town--all of which are nominatedsomewhere
in our ballot for this year's 20th anniversary awards.
This isn't our awards show; that's happening three days later at the Granada Theater.
This is just a chance for you to check out as many of these talented local acts as you can. The night stretches from 7 p.m. until almost 2 a.m., with new performances kicking off at the five participating stages at the top of every hour.
You can find info on the tickets here, and, maybe I'm biased, but it seems like a pretty reasonable deal to me. If you buy your $10 pass in advance, you get a wristband that gets you access to all five of the participating venues, as well as your choice of a T-shirt or our 16-track compilation CD.
Full showcase lineup after the jump. --Pete Freedman
