ROCKFORD (WIFR) – A local company is partnering with CherryVale Mall to spotlight Rockford’s independent music scene.
All this weekend you can check out the first ever music convection, or “Music Con”. At least thirteen local bands, ranging in genre from rock to hip-hop, even country, will be performing. Organizers say they were inspired by the Comic Con fandom and need to help promote local musicians.
“We need to get creative and do new things to make sure that promotion, we get those names out there of the bands, of the venues, of the businesses who support those bands and venues, on every level,” said Jerry Harris.
The event is family friendly and free and will run through Sunday. For more information, you can visit the event’s Facebook page here.
