You won’t have to go far to find local music near Boston this weekend.
This Friday night, T.T. The Bear’s Place in Cambridge is hosting the final night of their “Rock ‘N’ Roll Rumble” local band competition. If you, like myself, are a poor college student, the show is only $12.
Also, if you, like me, have never been there, then no worries! My roommate, Danielle, enjoyed the venue. She describes it as a small venue, but says that’s a benefit because you feel close to the live music.
Rock ‘N’ Roll Rumble finalists include Motherboar, Garvey J., Bow Thayer and the Perfect Trainwreck, and The Grownup Noise. Check out this video of the band Garvey J. playing the semi-finals on April 13:
The Phoenix reported that these four bands have competed in the Battle of the Bands-esque show over six nights: April 1-3, and 5-7. One band was awarded winner each show and moved onto the semi-finals, held on April 12 and 13.
The four finalists now have one last show to attempt a victory. The prizes include: air time on Boston Emissions radio show, recording time in a studio, and performance at the Tweed River Music Festival.
