It’s been a little while since we last discussed the upcoming Bloody Battle of the Bands, the combination BOTB and blood drive for Community Blood Center of the Ozarks coming to Remington’s (one M, Southside) in August. When we first brought the news to you the battle was far away; now it’s a mere three-or-so weeks, and there’s a lot to tell you about that wasn’t locked in before. Click the link below and get caught up drop by drop.
We’ll give it to you quick-hit bullet-point style, like you’re at a board meeting or something. There may be voting later*, but whether to stop bringing Bud Light is not on the table. Anyway, here goes:
– First of all, the date changed by one day; the event is now Wednesday, August 5 due to a scheduling conflict at the venue.
– There are six bands signed on to compete: Roots of Mankind, The Tall Dark and Handsomes, The Rest is Noise, Time Wolf, My Politic and Good Times and Caveman
– The event now includes a noncompeting headliner: Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, who will play for the crowd after the battle is concluded.
The other details we mentioned before still apply, of course. Who will take top honor at this year’s most unusual and innovative battle of the bands? You have just a little more than three weeks until you find out.
