Sitting and simmering over the past few months, with heart after heat raising the temperature, the Tarantula Music Battle of the Bands has finally boiled over, with the Grand Final just around the corner, taking place at CLUB BLINK next Friday the 28th of January at the St James Hotel, Sydney.
There’s nothing quite like a good ol’ Battle of the Bands. Groups of fiercely competitive young musicians, trying their very best to impress amongst a field of their peers, there is a real sense of determination and of the potential. Often the arena where upcoming bands hone their skills, eager not only for the prizes, but the recognition of their skills. There is a hunger in a Battle of the Bands, often as frightening as it is encouraging, and the Tarantula Music Battle of The Bands Grand Final is sure to deliver a lot of both.
The 5 finalists are:
THE TILLEGRA DAMNED
THOUGHTS UNDER FIRE
All the bands will be playing live on the night in front of a panel of Judges selected from the very best of the local heavy music community. The panel will feature members Daysend, Melody Black, MeVs You, Envy Parade and Braden Evans, the judges deciding who of the five bands will walk away with the $1,000 first prize and the trophy proclaiming them as the winners of the inaugural Tarantula Music Battle of the Bands.
