We are sorry to announce that we'll be taking this year off from our annual Holiday Show. The event has grown from an impromptu DIY hall-show at The Keyser Valley Community Center in West Side into a (still DIY) massive regional event in the beautiful Scranton Cultural Center with dozens of moving parts and a lot of planning time. With the release of our record, life circumstances, and some logistical road bumps we've decided to take this time to regroup. We're sad that we won't be doing the show this year, but know that we'll be taking advantage of this opportunity to do something new and exciting in the future. We've got some seriously cool things in the planning stages for NEPA in 2020, something we've been kicking around for quite some time ;)

We can not thank the bands, venues, companies, and volunteers and organizers enough for the past several years. And of course, thank you for your support.

We want to keep our tradition of raising awareness (and ca$h) for youth arts and music programs in NEPA, so we’re working on some ideas to still do that. We’ll post more on that closer to the Holidays.
