BMS Battle of the Bands II set to rock Olivers tonight!

, Staff

Boston Music Spotlight is delighted to host our second annual Battle of the Bands tonight at Olivers Nightclub at the Cask ‘n Flagon. As voted in by BMS readers, five great Boston bands – In Like Lions, Polyethylene, Shadwell, Silent Century, and Taste – will battle it out for what is sure to be one awesome night of local music.

The five bands will perform before a panel of five judges, who will be judging bands in the following categories: Musicianship, Vocals, Song Writing, Timing of Set, and Stage Presence. Points are awarded on a 1-10 scale, with 10 being the highest. A bonus category will allow judges to give 1-3 points extra to each band for crowd reaction. In the event of a tie, the bands will perform one cover song for the judges.

Beyond the glory of victory, the 2009 BMS Battle of the Bands winner will receive over $5,000 in prizes, including services from our sponsors, Powderfinger Promotions, Jamspot, CDWorks, Arguedas Photography and Revolve, Inc.

Tickets will be available at the door for only $10, so get the weekend started with BMS. Approximate set times are available below.
