The action begins at 8 p.m., but it isn’t the Montana State University-Northern sports teams providing the entertainment. Music will be making the boards vibrate tonight. Sponsored by the Associated Students of MSU-Northern, the Northern fieldhouse will be the showcase for two bands, one is an explosive rock band out of Los Angeles, Calif., and the other a local band just breaking into the music scene. Midnight to Twelve is an original rock band with phenomenal live shows and amazing fan appeal. Formed in 1999, and based in Los Angeles, M212 has toured the US extensively while gaining new fans one city at a time. Their touring was launched when their single “SLAM” was featured on the WB’s One Tree Hill and subsequently hit the radio airways around the country. This caught the attention of Evanescence and M212 opened for them on their 2003 US tour. In the fall of 2005 Indy label KORD Records signed them to a multialbum deal and immediately put them in the studio. This resulted in the January 2006 release of their album “King of Spain” which has already earned them their first radio single, “Remembering.” Midnight to Twelve features Al Baca, bass, Steve Oliver, keyboards, Daniel Jordan, guitar and Chris Atchley, drums. “This band is good,” student activities/gym facilities director Denise Brewer said. “They really got the crowd up and dancing when we saw them in Reno.” Opening for Midnight to Twelve will be Havre’s own Enzymatic. A brand new cover rock band just breaking on to the local scene, this will be their first show in Havre and proves to be their launching point. Enzymatic will keep you on your feet with the music you want to hear from The ’90s and today. Enzymatic is Steve Allison, guitar and lead vocals, Ian Munson, guitar, Joe Lamphier, bass and backing vocals, and Rob Everingham, drums and backing vocals. “These guys are so close to hitting it big, this concert gives us a big stage to break into the Havre music scene,” Everingham said. “We play a lot of current stuff and some 90s, not the kind of stuff you usually hear in Havre.” A professional sound company is coming in from Billings to do the sound and lighting effects for the concert. The gym will be arranged differently from other concerts that have been held there. A large open area will be left in front of the stage to encourage the audience to stand up and dance. College, high school and even middle school age students will leave wanting more after this performance. Midnight to Twelve is a professional, entertaining and highenergy rock band that delivers every time. They are on the way to million-selling records, radio singles, stadium concerts and world tours. Havre will be able to enjoy it all, up close and personal.
