Born Empty, from Nashville, Tenn., will be making its third
appearance in Lincoln and promoting the release of a new album, "The
Odyssey Chaoti-Pop Oddity." This band has played over 200 shows in
the last 18 months, building a fan base over 30 states wide. Their
infectious, explosive sound is impossible to resist or forget. Their
live show is a definite must-see!
Also on the bill is the local
Atlanta group The Sacred Eternal. This band of three brothers formed
in 2007 with a desire to create Christ-centered melodic metal. They
have recently been working with Greenlight Productions, producing
the single "The Reckoning," as well as entering to play the New Band
Showcase at the 2010 Cornerstone Festival in Bushnell. Currently
they are in the top 25 of this contest and have future plans to
record a full-length EP with Greenlight.
The Bob Clymers from Eureka will be promoting the release of
their second full-length EP, "Audiblize the Waltz." The Bob Clymers
have always been driven by something that stands apart from the
standard dream of fame-dazzled teenagers, and that's the intention
of portraying their music as an honest example of intangible
artwork. It's obvious with them, especially after the release of "Audiblize
the Waltz" in 2010. McKenna and Mac seem to drive their music with
every bit of their being. Any conflict, any emotional expenditure or
any event that seems to affect them, internal and especially
external, is faceted into their music, and this honesty is what
makes their music accessible by anyone who chooses to listen.
Tides, formally known as Cryptick, is a teenage band, also from
Atlanta. This band has gone through some lineup changes but returned
to the beginning members. They have new material and a new sound.
Finishing out the lineup are Jael Drove the Nail and Dog of
Panic, both newcomers to the Lincoln area.

It will be a great night of an eclectic variety of genres,
guaranteed to be enjoyed by all. The Cell, even though no longer an
organization, lives on with two of the original board members, Bell
and Harris. The mission of The Cell was always to provide youth with
alternative events that would help give kids the option to say no to
drugs and alcohol, and still have fun. Bell and Harris continue to
promote these youth concerts in the spirit of The Cell.
