Shots! Shots! Shots! Earthday Birthday turns 21




Local rock station WJRR throws a party every April celebrating Earthday Birthday with bands, stunt shows, vendors and even a carnival environment with rides. This year, the party is Saturday, April 12 at the Central Florida Fairgrounds and features four stages of live music (30+ bands), including headliners Cypress Hill, Everclear, Pepper, Filter, Alien Ant Farm, Fuel, Authority Zero and more. It's also the year that Earthday Birthday turns 21, so perhaps it'll be a little sloppier than usual?

All the VIP tix are sold out already (sorry, would-be ballers), but you can get tickets for $59 (+ service fees) online here or skip the fees and pay cash to pick them up in person at the WJRR Prize Window (on the fourth floor of 2500 Maitland Center Parkway, Maitland) 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, at the Melbourne Clear Channel offices (1388 S. Babcock St., Melbourne) 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday, or at Elixir (9 Washington St.) 11:30 a.m.-2 a.m. any day (obviously the best option?!). (RSVP here)

Congrats on a landmark year, WJRR, who knows what it takes to host a rock superstar in the biz.
