Friday: Artvoice BOOM Bash @ Nietzsche’s
by Artvoice Staff (@Artvoice) - posted 2:15 pm, January 15, 2010
It’s time for another live installment of our ongoing Battle of Original Music—or BOOM, for short. This is where four bands that won the right to compete in front of a frenzied crowd of local music lovers will strut their stuff in the hope of garnering the most votes, and a spot on the bill for our upcoming Battle Royale—the Artvoice BOOM Grand Finale. Past winners include Dali’s Ghost and TypeRelevant. This week features Photos of Wagons, the Gavin Petrie Band, Leon and the Forklifts, and Iceberg. These acts got here by generating the most votes in our weekly online contests, where we shine a light on some of the best original music our area has to offer. Friday, every audience member through the door will receive one ballot to cast for his or her favorite artist, and when those votes are counted by the end of the night, we will announce our winner. That winner will join the Albrights and Hunger Anthem, who’ve already taken a similar honor at our two previous live shows. Come out and support our great local original music scene, and don’t forget, if you’re in a local band, your picture could be on this page in just six short weeks. The first step is to enter. Visit boom.artvoice.com to find out how.
