Things To Do

Reminder: Local Acts Must Enter New Times Battle of the Bands by Tuesday

As I have already mentioned, the Broward-Palm Beach wing of New Times will be performing Simon Cowell-esque duties this Saturday at America's Backyard (200 E. Broward Blvd., Fort Lauderdale) during a rigorous Battle of the Bands. Even if some people aren't *head snap* likin' it.

When all is said and done, the South Florida act with the most stage presence, the most raw energy, and the most eyeliner (ha!) will get to perform in front of the masses at the New

Times' 13th annual Beerfest, April 17. Go get your entries in now!

The rest of the important info follows after the jump.

To enter: post a video, MP3, a link to your MySpace, or something that

lets us know that you're for real at and include

the phrase "(Your Band's Name) Rocks the Yard" by Tuesday, March 23. If you're that wildly lazy, just drop your band's info in the comments for this posting.


will help the judges narrow it down to the best five entrants, who will

each get to rock two songs in front of us during our Battle of the

Bands on March 27. The Battle champion goes on to open up Beerfest

on April 17.
