I think I've been going out of my brain! After this long long long cabin fever, self-isolating pandemic delay it's time tot get back to the future so we can get back to the rad! Let's do this thing!
We got a new date confirmed for 2021! It's August 29th at Hartwood Acres!
We're going to be making more announcements as soon as we re-finalize more of our plans., but right now HOLD THIS DATE!
Music announcements coming after I talk to my analyst about my pocketful of kryptonite....
Of course we planned a huge party and a pandemic happened. Who knew!
We are getting asked. The answer is, we don't know. You don't know and we don't know. Lots of uncertainty. for everyone.. Our sponsors don't know. Our vendors aren't sure. Our volunteers are unsure.. When we know, we'll let you know.
But we do know this....
When we first embarked on this project, the team decided that music was a big part of the 80's and 90's scene. and should also be a big component of our Rad Era car event.
Soundtracks from movies were popular during the period and sometimes movies got made because of the songs.. "Okay, fine... Fer sure, fer sure." Music and cars just fit well together in that 80's & 90's era. The Miami Vice television show pioneered the use of current popular music and musicians in their shows and that tradition has carried on to this day in television and movies. Need was say more than Bueller?… Bueller?… Bueller? before a Ferrari comes to mind?
Hartwood Acres, the Home of Rock n Rad!
So, we approached the folks at Allegheny County to talk about holding our event at Hartwood Acres Amphitheater on a Sunday afternoon before one of their free concert series evenings.
"We can bring some people to the park and celebrate the 80's & 90's in the afternoon if you guys can book an 80's or 90's band for the evening to round it out." we told them.
And they, where. AWESOME! They loved the idea!
They already have food trucks, craft beer an porta-johns at the park so we can just plug things in earlier in the day and rock into the evening with rad tunes.
If you haven't been to Hartwood Acres you should plan a trip before our Rock and Rad event and get a lay of the land. Check out their event schedule. for the Summer Concert Series which should be updated by early Feburary.
It's really an amazing venue and it's what makes Allegheny County a really terrific place to call home..
