The Doudna Rock & Roll Takeover: A Free Concert & Television Taping

Wednesday, 06 November, 2019 @ 07:00 PM - 10:00 PM | Cost:Free

“The Doudna Rock & Roll Takeover” free live music showcase and television taping that features the wild local sounds of the area's best rock and pop bands.

The Black Box at Doudna at EIU hosts the premiere showcase on Wednesday, Nov. 6 at 7 p.m. with three original bands who will each be filmed live to tape by Cavetone Records. Each episode will then air on WEIU-TV in primetime as the lead-in to “Austin City Limits.”

The official music schedule for the evening is as follows:

  • 7 p.m. – Jeremy T. McConaughey and the Band You're About to Hear (Charleston/Benton) - Carefully-crafted Americana indie pop.

  • 8 p.m. – Matty Till Dawn (Olney) - Endlessly-charming scuzz rock trio.

  • 9 p.m. – Sons of Cain (Mattoon/Efingham) – High-octane grunge machine.

Produced by Cavetone Records & Television, the concert and television taping also features the infamous host and hype man Colin St. Michael, a live Hit-Mix 88.9 remote broadcast from 6-7 p.m., and refreshments in the concourse.

The show is free to attend, and while the sounds may induce wild fits of dancing, the lyrical content is TV-PG.
