For the first time ever, Local Music Day will be celebrated at Yellow Cab Tavern on Friday, November 8th and Saturday, November 9th. Eight bands will play across both nights, and new releases from over a dozen local artists will be available for purchase. The cover charge on both nights begins at 7:00pm. Two-day tickets are available for $15 in advance, while one-day tickets will be $10 at the door.
“It’s funny how our first shot at this already spans across two nights,” said Local Music Day Founder Darryl Robins. “We originally planned Local Music Day as a single-night event, but so many great local bands with new releases wanted to participate that we just had to expand upon our original idea.”
Friday’s performers include Roley Yuma, Grenades!?, YARDBOSS, and Black Sire. On Saturday Lioness, Moira & Tino, Human Cannonball, and Smug Brothers will take the stage. New releases will be available from Overthought Musik, Roley Yuma, MOIRA & TINO, Me & Mountains, Smug Brothers, Andy Gabbard, Mike Bankhead Music & The Paint Splats, Dirty/Clean, Human Cannonball, Sympathetic Buzz, XL427, The Boxcar Suite, Crossfade Rivals, and more. All performances and new releases are by local musicians.
“The Miami Valley has such a vibrant music scene. It’s really something special,” Robins said. “Local Music Day gives everyone in Dayton and its surrounding communities an amazing chance to hear incredible local music and pick up some fantastic original recordings. Check it out!”
Local Music Day will feature eight live performances and over a dozen new releases from local artists. It will be held on Friday, November 8th and Saturday, November 9th at 7:00pm on both nights. All ages are welcome. Guests under 18 years of age require a guardian. Food will be available for purchase at Yellow Cab’s resident food truck The Pizza Bandit. Advance two-day tickets are available at https://www.soundvalleydayton.com/events/local-music-day for $15. One-day tickets will be available for $10 at the door.
