Victoria band Sky on Fire is making a comeback this Saturday at the Rockin' Spring Fest concert.
Featuring several other local bands as well, the show is a bit of a first for the area, organizer Frank Cornwell said.
"All the bands featured are Christian bands, so that's pretty unique right there," he added.
Although all the band's sounds are different, ranging from alternative to heavy metal, all of them identify as Christian bands, according to their bios. On the lineup for the concert are headliners Sky on Fire and local bands Seraphim's Cry, Far Past Broken, Send in the Calvary and Frankie-C.
After making it pretty big locally, Sky on Fire took some time off, but are ready to once again take the stage, Cornwell said. With a new drummer, Brian Bowden, and a keyboard player, Nate Cuellar, the band still retains two of the original members. Robert Knight is still on vocals and guitar, and Lee Ramirez on bass, according to their Web site.
Rockin' Spring Fest will be from 6 to 11 p.m. Saturday at Riverside Convention Center. Pre-sale tickets are $6 and $8 at the door. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 361-218-7734.
