Channel 93.3’s Big Gig shows have been taking place annually for over a decade and every year the concert more than lives up to its name. That shouldn’t be an issue in 2017, with punk icons Blink-182 topping a diverse bill that also features Bleachers, Marian Hill, The Wind and The Wave, Dreamers and Sir Sly.
The annual alt-rock showcase will take place on Sat. Aug. 12 at Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre. Presale starts April 13 or you can cop your tickets when the general on sale launches this Friday, April 14, right here on AXS.com.
Joining forces with Alkaline Trio singer and guitarist Matt Skiba, Blink-182 returned with the new album California in 2016. A deluxe edition of the record with 11 new songs will be released on May 19. Bleachers, the side-project of pop songwriter and fun. member Jack Antonoff, just shared their new single “Don’t Take The Money,” which was co-written by Antonoff's "Green Light" collaborator Lorde. And Marian Hill has been blowing up since their beautiful and eerie single “Down” was featured in a recent iPhone ad.
With three other rising bands filling out the bill, The Big Gig is once again shaping up to be a premiere showcase for the best in the world of alternative. Click here to get your tickets to the show and watch, Blink’s typically hilarious video for “She’s Out Of Her Mind” in the clip embedded below.
