Strikers Pub in Pottsville held round two of the Best of The Best competition here in Schuylkill County. The event was called Rock N Ink for a Cure. Proceeds from the all day benefit went to the American Cancer Society; and when all was said and done, nearly $4,000 was raised and donated. The bands started a 1pm and went on until close. Fans saw live performances by Lights Over Ashfield, Adrenalyn, GryN, Nothing Sacred, Faith in Exile, and Cyanide Sunrise. Strikers is a great venue for local artists; they had two stages set up for this event, one inside and one outside. Fans enjoyed a full day of music along with $1.50 Yuengling pints! In the early hours of the morning, when it was time to choose a winner, it came down to Faith in Exile and Lights Over Ashfield, with Lights Over Ashfield winning by a narrow margin. They will now advance to the final round and get their shot at winning a limited edition Yuengling Martin Guitar.

Thank you to co-sponsor Asylum Tattoo and everyone who helped make this event a success!
