Remember, Remember the 5th of November

Union City Now    

     Saturday evening, Woodcrest Lanes played host to local bands Your Acoustic Uncles and Dyslexic Funk (formerly Rolling Rock). Also sharing the stage was alternative rock outfit Looking for Astronauts, from Ft. Wayne, Indiana.

     Considering the date, artwork of the legendary British figure Guy Fawkes was used in the promotional materials for the event. But where Guy Fawkes failed to deliver a truly "explosive" performance, the same could not be said of any of the bands performing in Union City Saturday night.

     An estimated 200 people filled the intimate venue to near capacity. Local band Your Acoustic Uncles was the established fan favorite, but the audience stayed late into the night to give special guests Looking for Astronauts a warm welcome.

     It was through the efforts of Donnie Wymer of Your Acoustic Uncles, that Looking for Astronauts was included on the bill. Once again, Donnie is credited for introducing local audiences to original music from outside the local music scene.
