I love the sound of school buses in the morning! Sorry kids, it's just about that time BWAAA HAHAHAHA! Hey, check it out; we have Cutillos, The Shoey Fire Co and Pappy Ts checking in this time, welcome back.

Here is another band name to be entered into our favorite band name list, Egocentric Plastic Men, nice. Looking at the big stages the genres run the gamut this time, if you can't find something you like, well, then, I don't know what you want. I am drawn to Little Feat or Meatloaf, but Linkin Park, Toby Keith, Cypress Hill and Jason Mraz also look cool.

The big stage pick of the week, however, has got to go to Chicago and the Brothers Doobie on the mountain - sounds like a great show! Locally, if I have to pick, it's going to WTIM friend Pat Garrett at Knoebels. If you've never been to Knoebels, you're missing out, add Pat and the band to the fun and you have a can't miss good time.

Do you want to see your band or venue listed here at WTIM? Send an email to redneck@berksmontnews.com with the particulars (at least two weeks in advance) and we'll get it out there.
