Short’s Brewing Co. Announces Anni Party 13 Battle of the Bands Lineup

Short’s Brewing Company announces the lineup for their Anni Party 13 Battle of the Bands. Over the course of the next two months, 21 selected bands will battle for a paying gig to perform as the opener at Short’s 13th Anniversary Party on April 29th, 2017.

Selected bands will take the pub stage on seven Sundays this winter and spring, three each evening, to show off their skills. Each band will play three songs (one song must be original) in front of a live audience and Short’s panel of celebrity judges including representatives from the Crosshatch Center for Art and Ecology and Earthwork Music. Bands will be evaluated on their stage presence, “tightness,” original song, and overall party “vibe.” The band(s) with the highest overall scores will move on to the semi-finals. A final battle will be held on Sunday, April 2nd.

The Battle of the Bands will begin this Sunday, January 22nd, with performances by Benjamin James and Zander Michigan beginning at 4:30 pm. Other bands vying for a spot in the musical lineup for Short’s 13th Anniversary Party include Hurry Home, Red Herring, The Gasoline Gypsies, Jack Pine, ellyeahdehd, Impulsive Hearts, Dos Ultra, Tell Yo Mamma, and Strobelite Honey.
