The Last Band Standing competition is nearing the end of its preliminary rounds, which have been held over the past six Friday nights at Century Center. So far, six bands have moved on to the semifinals, to be held June 24 and July 1:
Boxcar Stringband / Jones Road / Kleverkill / Necktie Killer / Sifted / Stillfear
On Friday night, one of the following bands will win the fan vote and move to the semifinals as well: Broken Down Guitars, Capture the Flag, Shannon Tower Band, Strive Roots, Tourniquet Etiquette.
That means seven spots in the semis are taken, and LBS organizers need to pick three “wild cards” from among the rest of the bands in the competition to move on as well. Those three bands will get a second chance to win over fans in the semifinal rounds.
Now, the LBS team wants your input on who should be the wild-card bands. It’s simple: Leave a comment on this post and tell me who should get a second chance and why. Keep it clean or I will not approve your comment. No slagging other bands, either.
Here’s who has competed but didn’t make the semis. Remember, four of Friday night’s bands will presumably be eligible for wild cards, too.
Blue Babies / Cadence / Cognitive Riot / Concave Perception Chamber / Dan Shanahan Band / AJ Engstrom / High Desert Hooligans / Hilst and Coffey / Brian Hinderberger / Matt Borden and the MFB / OpenFate / Past Fraction Zero / Pine Lane / ScarLitt Fever / Shades of Society / Shovelbelt / Tentareign / Tuck and Roll / The Vaulted
Tomorrow, I’ll make sure to send a link to this post to Last Band Standing so they can read your comments. They say they’re going to announce the wild cards tomorrow night, so get to it!
