Matt McCoy, an 8th grade science teacher at Franklin Middle School, is already a big league rock star in the eyes of his students. But if his band, Tonight Tonight, wins a contest for 102.1 FM’s How the Edge Stole Christmas, he will open for the Smashing Pumpkins and Jimmy Eat World.
“He’s the coolest science teacher I’ve ever had,” 8th grader William Tyler said.
Tonight Tonight is one of 10 finalists in the competition for a local opening act during the Dec. 4 contest at Verizon Theater. Support Matt and the band by voting here. The winner will be announced Nov. 29. Good luck, guys!
