Submissions solicited for the annual Purdue Battle of the Bands

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The Purdue Student Union Board will accept demo CDs from March 9-27 for its annual Battle of the Bands competition.

Bands submitting CDs must include at least one Purdue student who is 18 years or older. There is a submission fee of $15, and the CDs must be physically dropped off at Room 268 of the Purdue Memorial Union. Each band must submit at least two songs for review. The top five bands will compete live at 10 p.m. April 24 at the Recreational Sports Center in the 10th annual Battle of the Bands contest.

The bands will be critiqued on their stage presence, quality of sound, originality, cohesiveness and overall impression, said Eric Glover, director of concerts with the Purdue Student Union Board. The winning band will receive $250, the runner-up $150, and the third place band $100, Glover said.

“This is a great way for local bands to gain exposure and to compete against one another for cash prizes,” Glover said. “It’s also a great chance for students to come and see the talent we have on campus.”

The Battle of the Bands will take place in conjunction with Carnival Night, another event organized by the Purdue Student Union Board, which features carnival games, food and prizes, Glover said.
