OTTS Garage will be welcoming 22 musicians and staff members this week from The Extreme Tour. The purpose of The Extreme Tour is to use extreme sports and music events to reach at-risk and counter culture youth with services and resources that would assist them in making positive, as well as healthy decisions for a successful life.
The Extreme Tour is, in terms of the number of communities visited in a year, the largest and longest running Extreme Sports & Music tour in the world. They currently visit over 100 communities each year in the United States, and this number is set to go up dramatically as the tour reaches out internationally starting this year.
Extreme Tour musicians and staff will be interacting with students during the day Friday, Aug. 19 to tell them about the show to take place that evening from 5-8 p.m. Six bands, including We Are One, Grace Defined, DJ Grandmill, ish-iLLa, No Lost Cause, and 2nd Story Anthem, will converge on Main Street in front of OTTS Garage, next to Cosmo Theater, and perform for three hours while also holding a skateboarding competition. Music styles will range from spoken word to R&B to rock. The event is free for all ages and includes free food and opportunities to win prizes.
Individuals interested in participating in skateboarding and BMX biking will need to have a liability release form completed by a parent/guardian. These forms can be obtained from members of the extreme tour on Friday afternoon, online at Facebook.com/OttsGarage, and at the event.
