Weekend: It’s judgement day

If you find yourself wondering how to spend your evening tonight, consider a trip to Toledo to check out Flatline Revival.
The band will be releasing its first CD, “Judgement Day,” tonight at the Light House on Broadway in Toledo.
The party is free to attend and will be held from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. The band will be selling the CD along with T-shirts.

After the release party, music will be available through iTunes, Spotify, CD Baby and Amazon or by contacting the group through its Facebook page.
Although group members consider themselves to be a Toledo band, members come from across northwestern Ohio and southeastern Michigan. The group consists of guitar player Alex Zoll, of Findlay; vocalist Austin Banas, of Perrysburg; bass player Matt Chlebowski, of Toledo; drummer Brian Bachler, of Toledo; and guitar player Mason Koch, of Riverview, Michigan.
Flatline Revival has a rock sound with influence from a little of the old and some of the new.
“A big influence for us is older rock like Guns N’ Roses and Slash, but also Alter Bridges and Creed,” Koch said.
“And Aerosmith,” Zoll added.
The band began in August 2013 with just Zoll and Banas, who met at Ohio State and started playing together. Banas’ cousin, Koch, later joined the group. Bachler was the next and Chlebowski is the most recent addition.
The group has been playing around the Toledo area. Their next performance will be part of the Toledo Music Fest End of Summer Blowout. Flatline Revival will be playing Aug. 30 at Mainstreet Bar and Grill in Toledo. The event starts at 1 p.m. and tickets are $10 each. There will be over 40 bands on three stages.
For tickets or any questions, contact the band through their Facebook page.
