Several years ago, The Blind Mule established its annual Rock Fight event. First conceived by Total Punk Records CEO Rich Evans, the Rock Fight concept is a fun collaboration and competition that brings together local musicians and vocalists of all backgrounds. Ultimately, Rock Fight participants must be flexible, adventurous artists who aren’t threatened by the possibility of departing from their musical comfort zone.
The Rock Fight process begins weeks before the actual event. After signing up, musicians are drawn and grouped together. The end result is a collection of bands created by chance. From there, the lineups of these randomly generated bands must work together to compose three original songs.
After writing and rehearsing, the bands will gather at The Blind Mule and compete against each other for Rock Fight supremacy. Judging from past installments, the Rock Fight lineup can feature fresh sounds that are awfully wonderful or wonderfully awful.
