As the popularity of the bands on the NEPA Holiday Show continues to grow, so does the concert itself, expanding this year to the grand ballroom of the Scranton Cultural Center.
Several generations of local and out-of-state fans came out to support The Menzingers; Tigers Jaw; Captain, We’re Sinking; Three Man Cannon; Petal; and The SW!MS‘ second reunion show, raising another substantial sum for Arts Alive, an intensive arts institute for young students from Northeastern Pennsylvania. Each performance was more lively than the last, with The SW!MS’ frontman Brian Langan even fighting laryngitis rather than disappointing the crowd.
To learn more about the concert, listen to Episode 42 of the NEPA Scene Podcast with Bobby Barnett of Captain, We’re Sinking and Episode 43 with Tom May of The Menzingers.
