Battle of the Bands slightly different next year

Next year, the 18th annual Battle of the Bands will see some changes. The event, sponsored by the Featherduster and The Technical Entertainment Crew, will be held on Oct. 25 instead of its normal second semester time. This earlier date means that any bands wishing to audition for the show will need to be prepared much earlier and have an audition tape ready by sometime in late August.

“I think that [the earlier date] might bring more people in with all the hype about football and homecoming, but there might be [fewer] entries because people are so busy,” Chromatic Funk member junior David Alvarez. “My favorite part of participating is getting the opportunity to play for new people and making them laugh.”

Look for Chromatic Funk at next year’s show. Battle of the Bands will still be held in the Performing Arts Center in the evening and is open to anyone who buys a wristband.
