The San Antonio College Music Association will be sponsoring Rockfest 2013 at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the auditorium of McAllister Fine Arts Center.

“Rockfest 2013 is mainly an attraction of local bands and people of all ages,” music sophomore George Cathey said.

Three local bands, Pop Pistol, Despot Lounge and Sugar Skulls, will perform.

In the lobby, unofficial sponsors will give away refreshments and prize drawings. There will be band merchandise.

SACMA president Alicia Covarrubias said the amount in the scholarships is dependent on how much is made from ticket sales.

“Last year, in our Holiday Concert, two scholarships for $125 were given out,” Covarrubias said.

Covarrubias said the only qualifications for the scholarships are that students must be music majors, maintain a GPA of 3.0, and be a full-time student with at least 12 hours.

Admission is $3 with a college ID and $5 for general admission.
