OLYPHANT — The Electric City Music Conference and Steamtown Music Awards will host an evening of announcements at 6 p.m. July 3 at Thirst T’s Bar & Grill, 120 Lincoln St.

There is no cover for the event, and two local bands will perform acoustic sets during the evening. Performers will be announced closer to the event.

Organizers plan to announce the finalists for each Steamtown Music Award category and unveil the 2016 Electric City Music Conference performance schedule.

In a press release from The Electric City Music Conference, co-producer Joe Caviston said the event will also act as a great networking opportunity for artists

“You’re going to have a room filled with some of the best musicians in NEPA,” Caviston said in the release. “Come out and meet the movers and shakers in the scene.”

Also noted in the release was Caviston’s reasoning for choosing the venue.

“With everything Thirst T’s is doing for local music, it’s becoming a hangout and hub for the local music scene,” Caviston said. “It seemed like the perfect fit to announce all our plans from (that) stage.”
