Clear for Takeoff to Perform at the Charm City Music Festival

We’ve been rocking out to Clear for Takeoff ever since Onastasia Youssef  interviewed the band last spring. Now, thousands more will fall in love with them at the Charm City Music Festival!

If you’re not familiar with this stunningly huge event, check out who else is playing.

Weezer. Flogging Molly. Stephen Marley.

It’s a big deal.

CFT entered to win a spot in the festival earlier in the year. “We submitted our lyric video for our song, ‘Voices (Letting Go),'” says bassist Joe Enste. “There were over 300 submissions and a panel of judges selected the best 8 songs/bands and had them compete in a battle of the bands.” After a twenty minute performance in the Locals Showcase, CFT won a spot in the Charm City Music Festival. If you’re up for a road trip to Baltimore, you can find out how to get tickets on the festival website; as a student, you’ll even get $15 off.

Can’t make it to Maryland? You can catch the band in their new movie! “CFT is co-starring in an indie musical/comedy called Rise and Fall in Love,” says Joe. We’ll be watching!
