This is one for the short notice club: it has just been confirmed that The Nick Atoms will be performing next Wednesday, October 5 at O’Gara’s Garage in St. Paul. We are part of a three-band bill that also features Johnny Trash and The Rice Channel. Cover is a mere $4. Doors open at 8:30 with music starting at 9:00. The Nick Atoms will be closing out the night, so make sure you get a good night sleep the night before.

Local Televisions To Be Destroyed

The Nick Atoms have been selected from a pool of entries to participate in the “Strictly Original”, The WB Minnesota’s New Music Competition, presented by Pizza Hut. This show will showcase performances of original songs by local Minnesota artists.

The format of the show is similar to “American Idol”: after each episode airs, viewers will be prompted to visit rsvpizza.com to cast a vote for their favorite artist from that evenings broadcast. Episodes will air Monday evenings at 9:00PM CST on the WB Minnesota Channel 23, with second runs airing Tuesday evenings. Voting will open at 9:30PM CST Monday evening and close on Wednesday at 11:59PM CST. One winner from each episode will advance to the finals which will air on September.

The Nick Atoms will be appearing in episode 3 which airs August 22. The taping of this episode will be Saturday, July 30 at 9:00PM CST at Champps in Minnetonka, MN. We will be performing our audition song a few times, and the production staff will choose the best performance for airing.

We need your help! The taping is open to friends and family, and we are encouraged to bring people in. If you are available that evening and would like to see the taping of The Nick Atoms’ performance, come on down! If you are unable to make the taping due to illness, geographic displacement, or alien abduction, please show your support by voting for us (if you like our performance) after the episode is aired on August 22.

Those dates again:

  • performance taping: July 30, 9:00PM CST, Champps in Minnetonka, MN
  • episode airing: August 22, 9:00PM CST, KMWB channel 23

Thank you for your time.
