48 HOUR BAND FESTIVAL IN MANKATO!

THE FIRST EVER MANKATO
48 HOUR BAND FESTIVAL!

April 14th @ 6pm
RED SKY LOUNGE
You find out who your band is! For the next 48 hours you and your new
bandmates will write two original songs and get one cover together. Then...

April 16th @ 7pm
RED SKY LOUNGE
ALL THE BANDS GET A CHANCE TO PERFORM!

The first ever 48 Hour Band Festival goes down from the 14th to 16th of April! Musicians that show up at the Red Sky Lounge on April 14th @ 6pm will put their names in a hat, and then names will be drawn to determine who plays with each other. Then, for the next 48 hours, each of these bands will work up two originals and one cover to play on April 16th at the Red Sky Lounge, when the battle goes down!

For official details on prizes and such, go to the Facebook page they've set up for this. It's gonna be a great time, plus the performances fall on Record Store Day (aka SECOND CHRISTMAS!). Sweet.

Each band will have to come up with a name, too, so yesterday we came up with ten AMAZING names that you can use!

1) Michelle and the Haunted Pants
2) The Melty Parts
3) Love It For Charlie
4) Cous Cous Chocolate Cake
5) My Kitty You Are Awesome
6) The Expert Panel
7) Sometimes Banjo
8) Space Space Space Space
9) All The Cookies
10)Thee Bad Touch

Here's a trailer for a documentary about the 48 Hour Band Festival that was held in Portland, Oregon a few years ago. It'll give you a feel for what it'll be like.
