Coastal Rock Productions brings A.U.R.A. Fest to Statesboro’s Bigshow’s Burgers and Bar on April 25th and 26th. This impressive weekend lineup is another step in the return of promoter Timothy Walls to the Savannah area scene.
From Connect Savannah:
“I’M nicknaming this ‘Concert Impossible,” laughs Tim Walls. “If we can pull this off, it’s gonna be really awesome.”
It’s been a decade since the last All Underground Rock All Day (A.U.R.A.) Fest, and Walls, the force behind Coastal Rock Productions, is resurrecting the tradition he started. For two days, Bigshow’s Burgers and Bar in Statesboro will be taken over by regional and local bands playing a blistering range of hardcore, metal, emo, and just good ol’ fashioned rock ‘n’ roll music.
From Do Savannah:
“The venue is the same building I did A.U.R.A. Fest in back in 2001,” Walls said. “It’s a different business, but the same building. It was just an awesome memory, in terms of the crowd and the energy and how the show went back then. I love this spot. The shows I’ve been doing lately (at this venue) have been coming out pretty good.”
