Us Too: The WMNF Tribute to the Us Festival
Back in 1982, Steve Wozniak of the Apple corporation, said, “I just wanted to throw a big party in the middle of nowhere.” 400,000 showed up San Bernandino, California to hear the eclectic music featuring new wave, heavy metal, country and rock. 35 years later, top Tampa Bay local bands and artists pay tribute to the 1982-83 US festivals. The 35th Anniversary Tribute is a two-night tribute extravaganza with local bands playing music from the US Festival sets.
