Music and skating have always had a close relationship, especially in the Dayton region where many local songs have been used in local skating videos. You can experience both the music and the skating live this weekend in Yellow Springs. Sunday marks the 2010 Yellow Springs Skate-Music Fest, a daytime event that helps raise money to maintain the Yellow Springs Skate Park. The festival is 3-8pm at the Bryan Center Skate Park in Yellow Springs.
Featured in the lineup is Yellow Springs/Springfield band The Show, Dayton’s Fuzz Hound, and Yellow Springs’ favorites Doctor Meat, and Psychonaut Suitcase. The festival also features three younger bands: Blue Moon Soup, The Hat Trick and Francisco & Hammy. The younger bands will compete against each other for the “SMuRF Award,” and a chance to play at Peaches Grill. Tickets are $3 for those under 18 and $5 for adults.
This event is part of the Yellow Springs Experience. For more on that event, check out Frank Coleman’s post here on DaytonMostMetro.com.
