Garnett Stadium, North Lake Park
BANDS:  Atomic Possum
with Free Range Chicken

 The city’s second major live music concert of the fall season will tune up October 10, the same day vintage custom cars converge on Garnett for a track event reminiscent of the city’s sports car races of the 1960s.          
    The Flat Iron Music Incident, sponsored by The Anderson County Review and the Garnett Area Chamber of Commerce, will feature two live bands and a beer garden at Garnett Stadium on October 10. The event is part of the Review’s 150th birthday celebration, taking place all through 2015.          
    The rock & roll/country music event is free to the public and is an all-ages show. 
     Review publisher Dane Hicks said the concert night was designed to entertain both local music fans as well as guests coming to town for the Lake Garnett Grand Prix Revival, a driving and exhibition event comprised of classic sportsters and other custom cars popular during the Garnett Sports Car Races of the 1960s. Some 100 sports car entries are registered for the weekend’s events.     
      The Flat Iron event is named after the lake track’s “flat iron” curve, an unbanked curve at the south end of the lake track which was a potential danger in the track’s old racing days because it was hard to navigate with straight aways leading to it from both sides.     
       Performing bands include opening act “Free Range Chicken” featuring locals Burt & Mackenzie Peterson, Adam Caylor and Ian Rocker and Paola’s Glen Hager. Headlining the event will be “Atomic Possum” featuring Bush City’s Leonard Louk. Atomic Possum’s single “Counterfeit Money” has had airplay on local radio stations in recent months.          
      Flat Iron will also include a designated beer garden area with food vending by the Garnett Lion’s Club. The event begins at 7 p.m.
