Sparks in Tuscola

Exactly one year after C-U rallied for ailing musician MIKE MILLER, there's another concert on tap.

"But this one is to celebrate," said Boat Drunks manager TODD LINDSEY.

Frank's Weekend Faves, July 1, 2018

This isn't your parents' Christian music festival. But the sixth annual AudioFeed Music Festival this week at the Champaign County Fairgrounds isn't meant to be. It is, however, meant to rock. Hard, that is.

If you somehow doubt me, just check out the monster lineup on tap — as listed at AudioFeed’s website, www.audiofeedfestival.com.
