Fuel Powers Basement Transmissions by Ryan Smith

Sunday, July 9

Of the onslaught of post-grunge hard rock you heard all over mainstream channels and airwaves in the late ’90s and early 2000s, some of Fuel’s singles — think “Shimmer” and “Bad Day” — were among the most ubiquitous.

Erie will have a chance to see for itself when Scallions brings Fuel — fresh off the heels of a mega-tour with old-school heavy-hitters Candlebox, Dishwalla, and Marcy Playground — to Basement Transmissions.

Fuelies (that’s what they call their hardcore fans) the world over know the Pennsylvania-born band has always been around since then, and, after some lineup changes, Fuel has been staying fired up in recent years with original lead singer Brett Scallions at the helm.

These guys put on one helluva show, according to fans.

And Erie will have a chance to see for itself when Scallions brings Fuel — fresh off the heels of a mega-tour with old-school heavy-hitters Candlebox, Dishwalla, and Marcy Playground — to Basement Transmissions.

Whether you’re a bona fide Fuelie or not, there’s no denying that’s another nice, big show for Erie right there — and it’s gonna be one rockin-ass Sunday Fun Day at BT. — Ryan Smith
