Tickets: $3 at the door ($5 under 21)

Rock Fight! is returning to The Blind Mule for another evening of mixed-up and mashed-up local talent. This event is a chance for local musicians to network not only socially but musically.

Days before Rock Fight!, a cavalcade of local musicians submitted their names. Then, names were drawn at random and matched with other musicians. The end result is a lineup of bands built upon both spontaneity and chance. These impromptu bands then set about composing fresh music to perform before a panel of judges.

Based on last year’s Rock Fight!, the audience never knows what they will hear. The drummer from a metal band may spend his or her set performing funk and soul. A pop vocalist may have to showcase their talents in a hip-hop context. Each band’s combined efforts may result in music that is wonderfully brilliant or terribly awful. The winning band will receive a Rock Fight! trophy and a cash prize.
