This Friday, Niamh is hoping that sparks will fly as the hard rocking threesome takes to the stage at Webster Hall to compete in the East Coast finals of the Emergenza Festival “battle of the bands.”
Formed about a year ago, Lily Sparks has attracted a loyal following by playing in venues such as Fontana’s, The Bitter End and Crash Mansion.
On Friday July 10, Lily Sparks will take the stage at Webster Hall to duke it out with other bands from New York, Boston and Chicago. At the end, one band will be left standing.
The ultimate goal is to compete against bands from all over the world who have won out in their respective countries and who will travel to Germany to play at the end of the summer to an anticipated 30,000 people.
“We need help to get there,” said Hyland.
“Audience votes and enthusiasm is a huge part of the night so I hope people come on out and support us. It will be a blast,” she said.
Webster Hall is at 125 East 11th Street between 3rd and 4th Avenues. The time for the contest is from between 8:15 p.m. to 10:20 p.m. Discounted tickets are available from any band member for $20 or the cost is <$25 at the door.
Lily Sparks have a website, www.lilysparks.com and the band’s music can be checked out at www.myspace.com/lilysparksrock.
