Calling All High School Bands
Do you make music? Are you or your bandmates students at a Portland-area high school? Would you enjoy the chance to perform at the Crystal Ballroom with nationally known acts as part of a fundraiser for music programs in Portland public schools? We thought so.
Music In The Schools is accepting applications for its Battle of the Bands only until March 20, so get your applications in now! This awesome, youth-run organization has put on amazing benefit concert for two years now that has featured acts such as The Thermals, Menomena, Blue Scholars, YACHT, The Shaky Hands, Sandpeople and more. For 2009’s concert, you can expect an equally great bill – and you could be a part of it!
While neither PDX Pop Now! nor Music In The Schools believes that music is a competition or that bands should be “battling” one another, MITS can only pick one student band to open the concert at the Crystal (which, hey, is way better than none), and they have to choose somehow. And what’s maybe more important is giving lots of high-school bands from the Portland area the chance to perform for and get to know one another and their fans at the Battle of the Bands auditions and concert.
Fill out the online application at the Music In The Schools website.
