This is to officially notify anyone who particularly gives a damn of Capt. Thornton’s 1st Annual Tampa Bay Local Music Festival, which we hope to hold in St. Petersburg, FL. It’s a festival I’m going to attempt to create between now and the target date of November 7th, 2009. The festival will focus solely upon local talent from the Tampa Bay area. No national acts allowed (unless they’re from here).
Realistically, I don’t know if we’ll get the damned thing off of the ground, but if we don’t it won’t be because we didn’t make one hell of a run at it. I’ve created a web site, which I’ve listed below, where I’ll chronicle our efforts to get this thing off of the ground, and through which we can hopefully build a bit of a buzz and garner local community support. If you want to keep track of our efforts in regard to the festival, or if you’re a vendor who would like to sell your wares there, or if you’re a volunteer who would like to help with tickets and other details, please feel free to contact me through the official web site.
