Local post-punk/indie-rock trio Firework Show took the summer season off but are ready to blast forth. They recently won first place at College of Charleston’s fourth annual “Charleston Battle of the Bands Competition” at the Music Farm. “We’ve been on sort of a summer hiatus, seeing as how [bassist] Sean Robinson has been in Italy for the past month studying abroad,” says guitarist Zach Bodtorf. “We have been piecing together the album in between jobs, in our free time, which should be finished up before the end of the year.” Their next gig is with Leslie and The Explorers Club at the Music Farm on Sat. Aug. 26. Check out www.myspace.com/fireworkshow.

After strong storms swept the area on Sun. July 16, local rock station The Bridge at 105.5 suffered a blow — or, as jock and assistant program director Morgan put it, “Yet another piece of equipment decided to take a dump, so again, the Bridge was temporarily off the air.” Dang. —TBL
