Early fall has become a heady time for live music in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Thanks in part to the timing of Middle Waves music festival and the increase in venues, audiences seeking live music have choices,
One band that will be part of the roster of performers is Fort Wayne-based Streetlamps for Spotlights. The trio has a new album, “Millennium Summer,” and some local shows to play to showcase the recording’s contents.
Streetlamps for Spotlights and Middle Waves
For the third year in a row, Middle Waves is packing downtown Fort Wayne with band’s from around the world, across the country and right around the corner. One of those bands is Streetlamps for Spotlights.
The festival is scheduled to get underway this Friday and runs through Saturday. Streetlamps will take the smaller stage Friday evening. The festival has experienced some changes in the schedule, but at the last minute, the schedule has finalized, and Streetlamps will take the stage at 6:15 p.m.
In total, roughly 25 bands will play Middle Waves’ three stages. Friday’s performers will be mostly rock-oriented, with indie rock, folk rock, and alternative rock acts representing their genres. However, the lineup is shaken up a bit with the inclusion of hip-hop performer, Smino of Chicago, Illinois. On Saturday, Middle Waves veteran, Flint Eastwood of Michigan will return.
After Middle Waves: Streetlamps for Spotlights
Mastodon was scheduled to play the Clyde Theater on Bluffton Road. But this was no ordinary show– the group was to play with the legendary Dinosaur Jr. Due to a family emergency in the Mastodon camp, Streetlamps were asked to open for Dinosaur Jr. Those who have their Middle Waves ticket stubs can get into the show at the Clyde for half-price.
The following weekend, Sept. 21, fans can find Streetlamps at the Brass Rail on Broadway.
With new material and the start of what is hoped to be a busy fall schedule, Streetlamps for Spotlights should be around to entertain fans for months to come.
