From Local Sources

ST. MEINRAD — A St. Meinrad Rocks! Fest promo night will take place Friday, Sept. 4 at Ron’s Place, 504 N. Van Buren St., Huntingburg.

In Society’s Eyes, an acoustic duo from Evansville will kick the night off at 8:30 p.m. with a set of original music. The group includes lead vocalist Kaylah Goines and guitarist and vocalist Jacob Brown.
“Expressing ourselves through music is honestly the only way to show who we really are. Society may see us many different ways, but all we can really do is portray ourselves the best we can,” the duo says.

Local favorite Silly Rules will take the stage at 10 p.m. Band members Don Lee, bass bass guitar; Kenny Lowe, lead vocals; Phil “The Excitement,” guitar and vocals; Eddie Strange, guitar and vocals; and Jeremy Cassell, drums can be seen on stages throughout southern Indiana and Kentucky.
