So as soon as you're done you give me a ballot and I can go vote for Vampire Weekend, right? ...what do you mean they're not playing? Shit... I need a cookie.

So as soon as you're done you give me a ballot and I can go vote for Vampire Weekend, right? ...what do you mean they're not playing? Damn... I need a cookie.

The call is out to high school bands in Springfield and surrounding areas to participate in a most unusual event. You may recall a previous post where we told you about the upcoming Bloody Battle of the Bands at Remmingtons Southside, in which the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks has high-school bands compete in 20-minute sets from 3 to 9 p.m. for a prize package including eight hours of free recording time at Studio 2100. To vote for bands, those in attendance donate a pint of blood in exchange for a ballot. Cool idea, eh? Well, we officially got the APB from the CBCO’s Jeff Houghton: High-school bands interested in playing can contact him at houghj@cbco.org to register or for more information. For eight hours of time in one of the city’s elite studios, plus a whole lot more–additional prizes are still being worked out at this time–it seems like very worthy use of a young band’s time. Additionally, high-school-age bands tend to carry devoted fanbases, so attendance (and, therefore, donations) should hopefully be strong. Did we mention it’s a big local show in the middle of summer?! Lots of intrigue all around. Let the bloody battle begin.
