Round two of the Hard Rock's battle pits Leading the Heroes, Stained Angel, Tri Funk Point, and Tristan Clopet & the Juice. The winner goes on to face last week's victor, Ghost of Gloria, on April 30. Ghost of Gloria and Thursday night's winner will be videotaped at next week's final round. Then the tapes of 20 winners from around the country will be watched by celebrity judges. Five of those tapes will then be put online, where viewers get to vote for a winner who will get flown to London to play Hard Rock Calling with the likes of Bruce Springsteen. So the short story: Tonight's winner just might become South Florida's rock ambassador in London.
Thursday, April 23, at the Seminole Hard Rock Cafe, 1 Seminole Way, Hollywood. Show starts at 9 p.m., admission is free. Call 954-315-9112. www.hardrock.com/promo/AOR09/battle-of-the-bands/.
