University of Rochester presents a College Battle of the Bands THIS Friday, March 24 at 8pm in the Douglass building (featuring dueling stages at either end--no wait in between each set!). Park anywhere on campus for free and any student will be able to point you toward Douglass. Tickets are only $5 and can be bought at the door.
Battling it out are: Thunderpuss More Cowbell Andover Trift Outside the Lines Myriad ECT The Magnolias Fortunado Room 30
Representatives from UR student organizations and UR faculty make up the panel that will judge these college bands, whose members hail from UR, MCC, RIT, Eastman, St. John Fisher, Ithaca, Cornell, Trinity, U. New Hampshire, Duke, Syracuse, Brockport, Binghamton.
The winner gets I belieeeve a slot in an upcoming show at Milestones. Perhaps other things as well, but as I'm in NYC this semester I'm slightly out of touch...I wish I could go!
So I'm probably going to be moving to Rochester in the fall, I'll be attending RIT (hopefully) for Photo. Since I'm from Detroit, MI, I don't know much about there area (I visited once over the summer). So I was wondering, are there any good gothic/industrial/electronica/ebm...etc. clubs in the area? There's about 3 or 4 in the Detroit area, is there anything in the Rochester area?
