And for as much as local music talent needs to be spotlighted, Chuck Vans also is using the event to give back to the city by helping out the San Antonio Food Bank.

"I also want to help the San Antonio Food Bank leading up to Thanksgiving. With the help of MODSNAP Radio, Fuel Bar, and Yuengling I can finally bring this event to fruition," he said.

The local bands set to take the stage is impressive with a lineup featuring The Hotel Diplomats, Bat Allison, Daphne Kills Fred, All Stories End, and Cartilage Casanova.

There will be drink specials, giveaways, and vendors. 

Tickets are $5 at the door or alternatively, people heading can donate five non-perishable canned food items, which will be donated to the San Antonio Food Bank, to get in and enjoy the show.

A new music festival making a positive impact in San Antonio is the aim for Chuck Vans.

"It's going to be a great Sunday of great San Antonio bands," added Chuck Vans.
