Last Friday, indie rock band Clockwork talked and also performed live on local TV morning show “Show Me St. Louis”. KDSK NewsChannel 5 airs the program every weekday morning to showcase the current and upcoming events happening in the Saint Louis area.
Clockwork's turn on “Show Me St. Louis” this August 15 was to promote their Saturday show in Chesterfield at the city amphitheater. The show was the School of Rock U-19 Bash, a one-day showcase of musical talent that raised funds for the Rock School Scholarship Fund. They were also collecting school supplies for local students in need.
Despite weather-related issues like rain and cloudy skies, the Chestferfield Amphitheater was filled with attendees to see the School of Rock showcase live. Other performers that night included Jon Anderson of classic rock band Yes and Steve Ewin, lead vocalist of Saint Louis-based alternative rock band the Urge. Pictures of the event can be found at the School of Rock St. Louis' Facebook page.
This weekend, Clockwork not only promoted their Saturday set at the School of Rock U-19 Bash but also performed music live on the set of “Show Me”. They performed a new song from their upcoming album, set to be released in early 2015. Unfortunately, the clip of them performing at the Saint Louis set does not feature the whole song.
Currently, the band Clockwork is running a crowdsourcing campaign to help raise funds for the recording and release of their sophomore full-length album. At the moment, their Indiegogo page has the band at five percent of their goal funded with thirty days yet to go before the campaign is ended. Several of the perks for funding include a digital download of the new album a month in advance of the street date and a personal video from the band thanking the pledger, posted on the band's Facebook account.
