   You may recognize this group from past performances at Beats on Bates Alley. So Long Belladonna writes music inspired by life experiences and emotion.

Publicity Stunt is a pop-punk and alternative rock band from Michigan City, drawing inspiration from 60s British Invasion, 90s alternative rock, and beyond. Having grown up playing together, the four are back and better than ever. We’re excited to have them join New Year’s Fest.
