Rock the Aces Battle of the Bands

Remember back in high school when Battle of the Bands meant rallying all of your friends and their amateur and misguided music ensembles in the high school gym or the stuffy auditorium in order to compete against other limited talent for neighborhood fame, the chance to impress that girl or guy you had been in love with since 7th grade, and the opportunity to float on popularity for a solid month? Now, imagine that scenario on major steroids, about 50 Red Bulls, and being 1000 times more legit. ROCK THE ACES is a Battle of the Bands that will steer clear of unrewarding novelty and successfully bring back the awe-inspiring reputation of the competition by making it completely harder/better/faster/stronger and a million times more enjoyable.

This Sunday, October 25th, TEN up-and-coming local bands will no longer feel the need to live vicariously through Guitar Hero, Rock Band, or any other fame/life simulating device, as they compete against each other for a unique opportunity to break into the Austin music scene–a live and legendary tradition that has dominated our city (and slogans) for years. But the title of Austin’s Hottest New Music Act is not the only thing that the winner will waltz away with from this competition. The Grand Prize includes over $3000 worth of goodies: a $200 gift certificate from Strait Music Company, a photography session with Unreal 360, a CD Art Design Package from FourToSeven Studios, 20 hours of studio time at Lava Studios, and an OPENING SLOT performance at Aces Lounge (which is the amazing venue where this whole event takes place)

Located on 6th street in the center of Austin’s downtown nightlife mecca and appropriately situated in the old Hard Rock Cafe building, Aces Lounge and its stage have been frequented by a  variety of all-star acts over the past (Glitch Mob, Prefuse 73, Django Walker, Afroman, The Cool Kids, Lotus, Evol Intent, Late of the Pier, Devin the Dude, Kid Cudi, The Airborne Toxic Event, Cut Off Your Hands, Paul Wall, Fastball, Cory Morrow, HEALTH, and many many many more). With two floors in view of the stage, a solid live music sound system, reasonably priced drinks, and a consistently energetic crowd, Aces knows how to throw a pretty dang good party. There’s also only a $5 cover, which is completely worth it to check out the cream of Austin’s new musically talented crop.

Everything gets rolling at 3 PM, so get ready to show up, have fun, be loud, hear tunes, and go crazy! And if you’re convinced that you actually have what it takes to battle with the best, then head over to FourToSeven Productions and find out how to enter your band and what it takes to win.
