Artvoice B.O.O.M. Grand Finale

This is it, local music fans—the grand finale, the battle royale, the main event—where one band will win the whole enchilada. We’re talking about the culmination of months of online and live performance competition among some of the best original groups our area has to offer. It all boils down to one half-hour set, where each of our four finalists—the Albrights, Hunger Anthem, Photos of Wagons, and Deja Fuze—will pour it on in an effort to sway votes their way to collect all the marbles in this, the third installment of our ongoing Battle Of Original Music, or BOOM! Past winners include Dali’s Ghost and TypeRelevant. Who will be the next act to collect the most ballot votes on Friday night, and walk off with a digital recording package from our friends at Guitar Center, plus a hefty cash prize and bragging rights as the newly-crowned Artvoice BOOM Grand Champions? Come down Friday night, March 5, to find out in person, and show your support for our great music scene by casting a vote for the band you deem the best. Visit to find out more.
