An indie music fest scheduled to happen at Norfolk's Town Point Park next month will feature melodic rockers Delta Spirit, I learned this week.
The free music and arts festival called ETC (Embrace The Culture), happening Sept. 14, is devoted to highlighting the independent creativity. Delta Spirit is an appropriate choice of headliner. The band, which has roots in Southern California, self-released its 2007 debut album, “Ode To Sunshine.” The record sparked enough excitement to earn the group a deal with Rounder Records.
Joining Delta Spirit on the ETC bill are Civil Twilight, Electric Guest, Good Old War and DJP and Mr T. More acts will be announced in coming weeks.
Readers may remember that ETC debuted last year as a replacement for the Acoustic Music Festival that had been presented at Town Point Park for several years. Last year, I wrote a blog post about the change.
