Join Get Hip • Get Art for an evening of free performances by some of the area’s finest young rock bands.  The second installment of the celebrated Sound Series will take place on Thursday, August 7 from 7 to 11 p.m. at Get Hip Recordings’ headquarters in the RJ Casey Industrial Park.

Titled Teenage Garage Explosion, the event will feature live music from Pittsburgh garage-punk rockers Nox Boys, Pittsburgh alternative teen trio Chase the Monkey and Detroit pop-rock band Blaire Alise & the Bombshells.

While still in high school, the Nox boys come together with big, sophisticated sounds, reminiscent of 60’s rock with a modern twist.

Chase the Monkey is Pittsburgh’s youngest power rock outfit with the energy and attitude of teenage rockers and an old school punk style.

17-year-old Blaire Alise and her band the Bombshells have been described as a combination of 50′s pop and garage rock with an old school girl-group feel, and her songwriting maturity is well beyond 17.

While the event is free, donations are accepted and go directly to the young artists.
