Pocaroo 2013 is set for Saturday August 10, 2013 at the Old Town Pavilion in downtown Pocatello, ID. Pocaroo starts at 2:00 PM and goes until 11:00 PM, providing a fun filled day, and night, for rock ‘n roll fans of all ages.
Pocaroo was founded in 2011. It was originally the birthday celebration for TBA – The Basic Alternative (formally The Bannock Alternative), and founded as a way for the magazine to give a little something back to the community in the way of a free outdoor public event. With music, beer and wine, food, and various vendors, Pocaroo is a great way to spend the day for the young, the old, and entire families.
Since it’s inception, Pocaroo has grown each year, and continues to strive to be Southeast Idaho’s Premier Music Festival. Held the second weekend in August each year to coincide with the TBA’s birthday, Pocaroo provides a fun filled day to help close out the local summer activities prior to everyone having to go back to school.
This year being the third annual Pocaroo we are proud to announce the following lineup of incredible talent both well know and new to the stage. We are pleased to announce the main headliner of this year’s Pocaroo is Trixter. Best known for their hits “Give It to Me Good” (which spent 5 weeks at No. 1 on the Dial MTV top ten video countdown), “One In A Million“, and “Surrender“, Trixter has been selling out shows and rocking the crowds since the mid 1980’s.
Appearing with Trixter at Pocaroo will be Liberty Lush, American Hitmen, Savin Seymor, Koiled, Tall Tales Of Truth, andOne Night Stand.
Liberty Lush from Idaho Falls, ID, has broke onto the music scene with tremendous speed and force. Their debut album entitled”‘Merica” has been received well by fans and critics alike. The video for the first single relase off of the album “Fabricated Life“, received over 5,000 views on YouTube in the first week. Liberty Lush has spent the last year touring and opening for bands such as Warrant, Saliva, and L.A. Guns, just to name a few, and is currently wrapping up a new album due out sometime later this year.
American Hitmen, from Salt Lake City, UT, have been a regional favorite for years. With two full albums and an EP out and doing well on iTunes, they have recently made some large scale national noise with their performance on NBC’s America’s Got Talent’. Accoring to Howard Stern on the show, “These guys rock!” American Hitmen’s have opened for Black Stone Cherry, Royal Bliss, Quiet Riot, and many more. The band also, in 2012, won a national battle of the bands which allowed them to perform at the Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival, alongside Staind, Shinedown, Godsmack, and Adelitas Way.
Savin Seymor, and Koiled are two hard hitting local acts from Pocatello, ID. Both are great live bands with their first album in the works. They have quite a large fan base in Eastern Idaho, and Northern Utah, and make a great adition to the show.
Tall Tales Of Truth, is a well known local favorite. With a unique style cross of rock and jazz-fusion, these guys always bring out a crowd no matter where or when they play.
One Night Stand is our opener for the day, and a well balanced band covering hits from the 60’s to the 80’s. A great way to start the day for the whole family.
