I'm really happy to announce that this year's Rock the Mill Festival will feature The Flashing Lights! Rock the Mill is a live, one day festival hosted by the City of Cambridge, just off the 401 right between London and T.O. Mill Race Park is a beautiful open air amphitheatre overlooking the Grand River where this free concert is held, hence the name.
show featured bands such as Astrokick, Bun, Here Comes Jim, Section 8,
the Jolly Bean Band, and the Flashing Lights in their first Ontario appearance
after regrouping that year. Everyone remarked at how beautiful the
setting was, how great the sound was, and how much they looked forward
to next year's show. Chris, Andrew, and Jay dropped by
This year's show will feature the Flashing Lights again, as well as Mississauga's the Meligrove Band, The Shannon Lyon Pop Explosion, Matt Osborne Band, Lisp, The Hassle, and a second stage with eight up and coming indie acts.
The show is on Saturday, August 21st, 1999 at Mill Race Park at Water St. and Park Hill Rd. in Cambridge. For more info, write me at this address.

| The Flashing
Lights played 2 shows on Saturday June 12th for North
By Northeast, Toronto's international alternative music festival. The
first was an all ages in the afternoon, and the second was at nights at
the Horseshoe. The latter was recorded by CBC's Radiosonic
and broadcast live across the country. The opening was spectacular - Matt
introduced the 'members of the orchestra' and they leaped right into 'Highschool'.
They also debuted a new song called 'It's All Right'. Elevature included
the standard 'Flashing Lights, Flashing Lights' chant with everyone singing
and 'Beatle Bob' joined them on-stage at the end to do the Frugg.
