by | Aug 5, 2014 | MUSIC

The Lockn’ Festival is happening at the beginning of September, and with headliners like Tom Petty, The Allman Brothers, Widespread Panic, String Cheese Incident, and Furthur, it’s sure to be a highly sought-after ticket. As it turns out, it’s also a highly sought-after gig for quite a few popular local bands.

The Lockn’ Festival is happening at the beginning of September, and with headliners like Tom Petty, The Allman Brothers, Widespread Panic, String Cheese Incident, and Furthur, it’s sure to be a highly sought-after ticket. As it turns out, it’s also a highly sought-after gig for quite a few popular local bands. Bands from all over Virginia have been participating in a multi-round tournament for a spot on the bill, and that tournament has reached its final round, to be held at the Jefferson Theater this Saturday. Amazingly enough, three of the four bands still in the running for the festival slot are based in RVA, and should all be familiar to the readers of this publication. And here they are…

People’s Blues Of Richmond:

The Northerners:

The Trongone Band:

Also on the bill will be Charlottesville’s Erin And The Wildfire, though we assume all our RVA readers’ allegiances will be elsewhere:

Regardless of which of these bands are your favorite, they could all use your support and your votes to help them get onto the Lockn’ Festival lineup. Plus, they’ll be coming together to make a great lineup of Virginia-based rock n’ roll for you to enjoy on a Saturday night! So this weekend, get ready to make the trip to Charlottesville and have a blast cheering for your local faves!

WHAT: Rockn’ To Lockn’ Battle Of The Bands: Final Round!
WHERE: The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St, Charlottesville VA
WHEN: Saturday August 9, Doors open at 8 PM
ADMISSION: $8 in advance/$10 day of show–order tickets HERE

What’s really awesome is that you could go see this show for free! RVA Mag has two tickets to this shindig to give away to one of our lucky readers, which could be you if you enter your info into the Punchtab widget below. Do it up, people! Keep an eye out for extra chances to win, and make sure you enter by Friday at noon, because that’s when we’ll be bringing this whole process to a halt and picking a winner!

And oh, by the way, get your tickets to Lockn’ Festival, taking place September 4-7 in Arrington VA (40 miles south of Charlottesville) here if you haven’t already.
