2012 UMX lineup announced…

March 20, 2012

What is the UMX?  Clever spelling aside, this is the Ultimate Music Xperience...and it’s coming this weekend (3/24, and 25th, 2012) to Bender’s Tavern (10AM-6PM).  This is the official audition stage for the 41st annual CHUN Capitol Hill People’s Fair.  It’s free, all-ages and open to the general public.

No, don’t bother going to the “tryout link” above – it’s far too late now!  CHUN was accepting band applications through the end of January.  They received over 300 applications and after many listening sessions and heated debates, they whittled it down to about 80 acts.  These bands will now vie for about 40 spots playing at the People’s Fair.  Here’s the lineup.

If you’d like to take in a deep draught of the local music scene in a very short period of time, this is your chance.  Each act will play for 10 minutes (2 songs) on two alternating stages.  New this year, the stages will be backlined to minimize the chaos.  Audience members can also play a role in band selection – look for voting sheets when you get there.

UMX sponsors include: Bender’s Tavern (of course), 99.5 The Mountain, Fox 31 News, The Onion, Miller Brewing Company, Pepsi, Panera Bread, Steve’s Snappin’ Dogs, Dog House Music, and Happy Llama.
