February maybe the shortest month but it is jam packed with some cool stuff. WTIM friends Black Hat Boris and The State Theater are offering dinner and dancing for your sweetheart. Pay attention to the purchase tickets by dates or you may get shut out! Jim Meck, Levi Bone, Middle Class Madness, Me Against Me are rocking your way too, and for something a little different, the guys from STORM are strapping on the skates up in Hamburg to bring a little ROCK to Keystone State Rolling Renegades roller derby teams ROLL. Some of you may doubt the skate thing, but with his wireless bass setup Im sure Gregg may try to give a new meaning to the words Flying V Just a quick look at some of the national acts The Santander Performing Arts Center just announced it will be hosting Alice in Chains in May, this will be one of the premier concerts of the spring. Looking way forward, into August, in another just announced tour, Motley Crue will be bringing their FINAL tour to two local venues: The Susquehanna Bank Center AND The Allentown Fair. My money is on the Allentown Fair show being the wildest. Their high energy shows will be greatly missed on the live concert stages! Get out and celebrate something!

Do you want to see your band or venue listed here at WTIM send an email to tdietterick@21st-centurymedia.com with the particulars (at least 2 weeks in advance) and well get it out there.
