Battle of the Bands @ Headliner’s – 3/9 and 3/30

Louisville’s Headliner’s will be host to two battle of the bands shows as a part of Gorilla Production’s National Battle of the Bands Contest. You have to love battle of the band shows. Music and Competition combined for an evening of entertainment. There will be eight bands competing for a trip to the finals (end of April in St. Louis or Phoenix). The winner of the finals will receive $500 in cash, 20 hours of studio time, and a submission to one of the following labels: Warner Bros., Rotten, Geffen, Prosthetic, Metal Blade, Universal, or Columbia. The band will also receive a headlining gig at the featured concert club. The winner will be determined by the audience’s applause. Each band had been given a set amount of tickets and the band that sells the most gets to be the headliner (the rest of the slots are determined based on ticket count as well). You can request tickets through their myspace pages (the ones I could find are linked below) and they will set you back $8 bucks (or $10 at the door and your favorite band doesn’t get credit). It is an all ages show and starts at 4pm.

Battle of the Bands

* Each battle will consist of approximately 8 bands, each playing a 30 minute set* The winner of each show will advance to the finals. The winner of the finals will receive $500 in cash, 20 hours of studio time, a submission to one of the following labels: Warner Bros., Rotten, Geffen, Prosthetic, Metal Blade, Universal, or Columbia. The band will also receive a headlining gig at the featured concert club.

* Judging will be based on audience response/applause at the end of the show. Note: The more people you bring, the better your chances of winning. Don’t forget to tell your fans to stick around until the end of the show.

* Time slots are based on each band’s ticket sales. Time slots will be determined after bands have turned in all ticket money. The band that sells the most tickets gets the first choice and is declared the HEADLINER. The band that sells the second most gets second choice of time slots, and so on.

* Each band will be given 100 tickets to sell. Tickets are priced at $8 in advance and $10 at the door, day of show. All ticket money and unsold tickets must be turned in at load-in on the day of the show. Bands will be held responsible for any missing tickets.

* LOAD-IN WILL BE EXACTLY 90 MINUTES PRIOR TO THE FIRST BAND. The show time is printed on your tickets. Even if you expect to be the headliner, ALL BANDS must check in at load-in time. YOU MUST BE ON TIME OR YOU WILL NOT PLAY!

* Bands must be considerate of other bands getting off stage as soon as possible in order to enjoy a full set. Bands that do not get off stage in a timely manner will not be considered for future events.

* Bands must bring theor own gear. The club will supply the PA and mics.

* There is no entry fee for the Battle of the Bands; however, due to various costs, there is a $25 cancellation fee. If you decide not to inform us of your decision to withdraw, the no-show fee is $50. In other words, HONOR YOUR COMMITMENT. Relationships and integrity mean everything in this business.
