This is a tribute show for a local legend Mark Gilmore who hosted Local Licks on the radio for a decade! He has been nothing but supportive of my music and most of all, me as a person! THANKS MARK!
It has been a month or two to get all of the kinks worked out, but this show is finally officially organized! Though most of you will undoubtedly already know this, back in the middle of July after 10 years of working to better our Nor*Cal local music and art scene, Mark Gilmore was laid off from Entercom which effectively killed the show that we all love known as Local Licks on 98 Rock. This event impacted so many local bands, fans, and friends that we had to throw the biggest going away party possible. This show has been put together for the purpose of showing Mark how much we have all appreciated his hard work and dedication to bettering our scene. This show is also a benefit for Mark and his family. We all know how hard it is to find decent full time employment in this economy, so as a show of gratitude for all that Mark has done for us, ALL of the door proceeds from this show will go directly to Mark and his family. He has supported all of us in so many ways over the years that it's time for us to show him how we feel, and how much we all love him! Tickets for this event will be going on sale later this week and can be purchased from Ben Sales, Shawn Gilmore, Ernie Womack, Chelsea Baker, Adam Roth, and also from any of the bands on the bill for the show... The line up is as follows (In no particular order): Restrayned, First Class Citizen, Andrus~Shively, Larisa Bryski, Turning Point (reunion show!), and Self Centered, as well as acoustic performances by Billy Schult, TJ McNulty, and The Posse, and a dance performance by one of Sacramento's best dance troupes: Verbatim! This show is 21 AND OVER ONLY, tickets are $12, and the doors open at 6:00 so GET THERE EARLY! Come give back some of the love that Mark has shown you all these years!
