The guys from Bradenton's greatest rock export, We the Kings, are returning for their 6th annual Hometown Christmas Show. The concert will likely find the globetrotting, pop-punk group performing past hits and fan favorites such as "Check Yes Juliet,"  "Say You Like Me" and the Bradenton ode "This Is Our Town." Attendees can also expect to hear this year's strikingly emotive and melodic hit single "Just Keep Breathing" and more material from WTK's upcoming fourth full-length "Somewhere Somehow." The show will again be at The Hall in Palmetto.

"This will be bass player and Sarasota resident Charles Trippy's first concert back from his brain cancer chemo treatment," says singer and guitarist Travis Clark. "It's also the band's first official concert playing new songs after releasing our brand new album on December 16th on the iTunes store."

Here's an interview I did with Travis in April. He and I go way back and we'll be talking again soon. Stay tuned.
