ST. LOUIS RADIO SUPPORTS UNSIGNED MUSIC! Alternative KPNT St. Louis has announced this year's "PointFest" lineup - 35 bands for 35 bucks on August 23rd at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in St. Louis.

Always a supporter of local rock acts, KPNT will feature a number of unsigned groups mixed in with the higher profile bands like Staind, Chevelle, Shinedown, Atreyu, etc.

Have a listen to some of the local acts - it's all pretty standard "red state rawk", but that stuff sells ...and you know it!

Copperview -- Three Doors Down-meets-Seven Mary Three

Brookroyal -- One album away from having it together - they could use some A&R/producer direction, but there's promise here. Singer has an interesting tone to his voice.

Janus -- We've heard about this band a bunch over the past year or so - Chicago's Q101 has added one of their tracks ("Eyesore") into - worth looking into...

Shaman's Harvest -- See description of Copperview and sprinkle in a bit more Southern rock. Really radio-friendly stuff, and it's obvious they've got someone working them at Rock/Active Rock radio already (not many unsigned/unpublished acts have 'impacting at radio' written across their MySpace page).

Red Line Chemistry -- Chevelle-ish. Remember Revis? Kinda like them. If Revis listened to Tool. Managed by Red Light Management.
