'Smoke Signals' Calls For Attention
Saturday, Apr. 20
Singer-songwriter and promoter JC Nickles
On April 20, a day with "high" hopes, Nickles returns with his "Smoke Signals" event at Basement Transmissions. If you're not so sure about what the musical landscape is around the city of Erie, this is one show that provides the soundtrack with both well-seasoned and novice musicians. Though JC will take the stage himself, playing the host is more of the agenda here — to cater to both tuned and curious ears with local artistry.
Veteran performers such as YB, Doc' Proto, and Mala Sangre will carry on the tradition while buzz-worthy newcomers Aria and the Voiceless, Lil Eggo, and Jordy the Traveler take off with the baton. Local YouTuber Faith Ann will bring female hip-hop to the forefront while the rock/rap emcee Mad Clock wastes no time telling riveting stories. "Smoke Signals" stands firm by being a clear mediator between the well-known and the rookies, delivering a monumental moment of musical diversity. From start to finish, guests can expect an evening of performances showcasing their differences by sharing the same passion. Stop on in at BT and bear witness to what's going on in your own backyard. — Charles Brown
