40 Watt/Terrapin Fundraiser Announced!

The 40 Watt and Terrapin Beer Co present:

The First Annual Athens’ Restaurant and Bar
Battle of the Bands

Athens’ restaurants and bars are being challenged to put together bands using their staffs and go head to head. It’s no secret that many Athens’ musicians support themselves working for local area restaurants and bars. Athens’ restaurants will use their musically inclined staffs to compete for a cherished prize while also raising money for two great local charities. The winning band will be awarded a glass pitcher decorated by a local artist.

Restaurants/Bars can enter through Rick Poss at the 40 Watt Club. The entrance fee is thirty dollars and only the first ten bands will be accepted. Each band gets three songs or fifteen minutes to sway the judging panel and all songs played must be covers.

Rules & Guidelines:
* The band must consist of current employees of the establishment (no ringers please!)

* The band can’t be an already established, performing band.

* Each set must be no longer than 15 minutes and must be covers. Tributes are welcome.

*Each act will be judged by a panel of three judges on originality, sound and performance as well as an audience reaction vote.

*A backline will be provided by the club to keep things going in a timely manner.

The band entry fee is $40, which goes to cover the cost of production.

The entry deadline is Friday, April 17th.

Only the first 10 bands to enter will be accepted.
