Building 429 with SAMESTATE at the LaPorte County Fair, July 12

One of the hottest band in Christian Radio during the past year, Building 429, is coming to Northwest Indiana. The LaPorte County Fair is bringing Building 429 with guest SAMESTATE to their stage Thursday, July 12.

Building 429 has enjoyed an amazing run in the last year since the release of both their single and album entitled Listen to the Sound. When Listen to the Sound was released to radio, it shot up the charts and enjoyed great success. How did they follow that up? Where I Belong blasted onto the charts next finding its way to the number one spot across the board of Contemporary Christian and Adult Christian Charts, occupying the 20 The Countdown’s number 1 spot for 9 weeks running!

Building 429 has enjoyed previous success with songs like End of Me, The Space Between Us, Always and others, but is in unchartered waters as a band with this chart run.

Now, The Region has a chance to enjoy them – LIVE! – as the LaPorte County Fair hosts their first national Contemporary Christian Music act as part of their entertainment line up. I asked Gene, the director of the LaPorte County Fair, how they came to book Building 429 for their fair this year. He said they were looking to try a Christian Contemporary Music act since they hadn’t really tried it before. Working with a booking agency, Gene wasn’t aware of just how popular Building 429 is right now.

Tickets go on sale April 28. We’ll post information about purchasing tickets as it’s finalized before that date.

The opening band for the show is SAMESTATE. They made a tour stop(I believe) in the Valpo-area recently and are a building a solid following in Contemporary Christian music.

Gene contacted WITW about promoting the concert to our area. We are thrilled with the opportunity help get the word out about this show. Coming off the chance to promote the Selah concert at Liberty Bible Church, this gives us a unique opportunity to see what we can do to promote and support a national concert in our backyard.

It also continues to provide sponsorship support that we are trying to grow in order accomplish several important upgrades and improvements strengthen our outreach ministry at WITW.

We encourage you to help spread the word. Let us know if you would like to be part of our effort to reach out on behalf of this show. If we can show that we can make a difference, it will help us reach out to other potential sponsors going forward. There are some exciting things on the horizon if we can build that sponsorship momentum.

God bless y’all.

A Taste of Cornerstone

Cornerstone is a huge – with a capital HUGE – Christian Music Festival that has a pretty rock-to-metal edge to it. For the second year in a row, Valpo’s own Behold the Branch, from The Branch, is bringing a couple of Cornerstone participants back to Valpo with them. This time Ascend the Hill and Great Awakening will be in Valparaiso at The Branch for a concert with Behold the Branch Sunday, July 3 starting at 7pm. There is no cover, but donations will be accepted. Should be a great show!

Listen to WITW starting this week. We start playing 1 Corinthians 2:9 from Beyond the Branch‘s new EP on Tuesday. We’ll be looking to add a couple more tunes from them as well as Great Awakening and Ascend the Hill this week.

The Branch is located behind Blackbird Cafe’. The front door faces the 57 Franklin St parking lot off of Indiana. Come early and stay late. It will be a great addition to the July 4th Holiday weekend.
