Rock band Devour the Day, which mentions Fort Wayne in a song on its debut album, will perform with headliner Sevendust and local band Downstait at 7 p.m. today at the Fort Wayne Newspapers Three Rivers Festival.

The concert takes place at the festival plaza pavilion in Headwaters Park East, Clinton and Superior streets. Gates open at 6 p.m.

Tickets are $18 at the gate, or $15 with a TRF button. Children ages 12 and younger are free with a paying adult.

Buy tickets in advance at the TRF office, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays at Three Rivers Luxury Apartments North, 102 Three Rivers North; and the Embassy Theatre box office, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. weekdays at 125 W. Jefferson Blvd.

Devour the Day includes Joey “Chicago” Walser and Blake Allison, both of whom formerly played with the band Egypt Central, which had a strong following in Fort Wayne, publicist Amanda Cagan said.

In Devour the Day's song “Handshakes To Fistfights,” from the album “Time & Pressure,” the band sings, “Fort Wayne couldn't save me, Infatuation isn't love; I went … crazy, It showed me who I really was.”

Lyric videos for that song and another from the album, “Good Man,” are available on the band's YouTube page at

The album, released May 7, features Walser on bass, backing vocals and songwriting and Allison on lead vocals, guitars, drums, songwriting and producing.
