The only rock festival this summer is The Q103 Q-Ruption August 19th at SPAC.  Starring Godsmack, Five Finger Death Punch, Skillet, Sick Puppies, Egypt Central and one local band to open the show.  For the past month, we solicited for the best local bands in the Capital Region. The finalists have been selected to Play for the Stage at Savannahs.  Who made it through.   There are many great sounding bands in the Capital Region.  We wish we could have all of them play at Q-Ruption on August 19th.  However, we only have room for 9 bands to battle and Play For The Stage Friday nights at Savannahs.

Congratulations to Pipebomb, winner of week one and Tamberlane, winner of week two - and Selfish Needy Creatures  moving on to the finals August 12th.

The Q103 judges had a difficult time picking the 9  bands so we selected 13.    8 finalists have been chosen to play.  One of the  5 other bands will make the final slot but it will be up to you to have your voice heard and vote them in.

Congratulations to the  SELFISH NEEDY CREATURES, winner of Play For The Stage and will open for Q-Ruption.
Gates open at 5pm.
