OEAA Showcase & What’s Shakin’

Friday night, Nov. 9, the annual OEAA music nominees showcase hits the streets of Benson. This is always a fun event with the chance to see over 35 local bands at five venues for a mere $10. Event wristbands are available at the door at The Waiting Room, Star Deli, Barley Street Tavern, The Sydney and P.S. Collective inside The Pizza Shoppe. It’s a great way to sample the music of bands and genres you don’t normally listen to or support your favorite artists. Music starts on most stages around 7 p.m. and schedules, which can change, will be posted at each venue. See Facebook.com/OEAAwards.
