Thumbs up Battle of the Bands

Note: Battle of the Bands will be on Sunday, May 3rd, not May 2nd as was previously announced.

You can now rent instruments until May 10th at the Comic Club. As of right now, this is only temporary; eventually, a real renting scheme will be implemented.

These instruments are mainly to be used for Battle of the Bands, but you do not have to participate in that in order to rent an instrument.

Come down to Comic Club for more information!


--

Battle of the Bands! Enter this contest with your friends for a chance to win big! Battle of the Bands will take place on Sunday, May 3rd at about 3 PM EST. There is a $3,500 sign up fee. If you choose to sign up, you will receive no refund for any reason, even if you are offline or do not win. If some band members are offline, you can choose to forfeit or play without them to the best of your ability.

Your performance can last no longer than five minutes. We would prefer if performances were 1-3 minutes long. You can participate by yourself or in a group. There is a maximum limit of five people per band/group. Each band member can be in only one group. Once you add band members, they will have to accept. If they refuse, you will not be able to get a refund, so please pick wisely and talk to them first!

To sign up, create a band, & invite members visit "Chedda Cheez", the Battle of the Bands NPC representative outside of the gun shop by unstick me. Special prizes will be given to the winners of the event. And no I won't tell you what it is!

Good luck to everyone.

it's a cool concept but it would be even cooler if people play actual original writings instead of "OMG LOOK AT ME I CAN PLAY THE MARIO THEME."

a non-pk oriented event calls for a non-pk oriented prize. that's how I see it.

I agree 100 [percent].

This isn't Battle of the Cover Bands.


And as for the prize, I have a feeling it's going to be one of the unreleased instruments they've been working on.

Ever heard of techno, electronic, eurodance, trance, ambient, breakbeat, or synthpop music? It's a lot more popular than you think.

I'm black, that should answer that question. And, I personally think playing an instrument irl is a burdon, I play era for entertainment, I don't think anything burdoning is entertaining, unless I'm getting paid. No one is going to pay me for playing a digital contra bass.

I don't find playing instruments a burden, I find it relaxing and fun, hence why I can play several.

No one is forcing you to attend Battle of the Bands (though you don't really have a choice). The majority of players have liked these instruments and events.
