Congratulations to the winner of Week 1 of CIVL’s first ever Battle of the Bands!
Merciful Angel will be facing off against two other playoff qualifiers at the end of June at UFV Abbotsford’s Aftermath. Which other two bands will fit this bill?
Stay tuned to find out!
This past weekend, local Abbotsford high school phenoms Yes Men Jr. shocked and awed the audience with their masked performance of psychedelic kraut-drone, disappointing the scenester faithful by finishing third behind runners up 7th Avenue, whose homegrown brand of good ol’ rock’n'roll coasted them into an easy 2nd place, just behind Week 1 champions, Abbotsford’s own Merciful Angel.
Remember, every band still has a chance to make it into the playoff round through online fan voting, and we’ll let you know how that works as soon as you check back enough times!
So stay tuned and get ready to be the difference maker in this competition!
