Thursday will see the stately halls of the McCarthy Arts Center at St. Michael's College torn to shreds with PURE ROCK'N'ROLL... and some singer/songwriter folky stuff... and probably some noodley jamming... and at least one a cappella group.
The occasion is a Battle of the Bands happening Thursday evening at 7:30 p.m. The lineup consists of SMC and UVM-affiliated artists Maga, Mic Check, The Sepia Tones, Fink, Free Louis, The Billy Collins Band, Fall Line, John Howland, and Davin. A winner will be decided by the august judging panel of Seven Days music editor Dan Bolles, St. Michael's fine arts department chair Susan Summerfeld, and SMC senior Tom Cadrin, who happens to be a fine musician himself. Admission is $3 for students with ID, and $5 for everyone else. All proceeds benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation, so it's all for a good cause.
