Fundraising Update: So far we have eclipsed our $5000.00 goal and are steadily making headway towards the stretch goal of $10,000.00! You can help us get our signal out to Chilliwack by calling the pledge line (604) 851-6322, going to the Sign-up/Donate tab at CIVL.ca, or coming down to the Abbotsford Campus of UFV in building C, room 1061. Only three more days!]]>
Did they play Thrash, Metal-core, or their own brand of indie rock?
All aforementioned genres and locales were represented at the tenth and final night of CIVL’s Battle of the Valley, where three bands were all guaranteed at least $200 in Long and McQuade gift cards, and a chance to get their own Music Videos from Tractorgrease Multimedia, Mastering from Five Acres Studio, and a band photo shoot from Jayme Anne Photography.
The odds were hard to call. Of five judges, there was one three way tie, and each band won over at least one judge.
Pledge by calling 604.851.6322, online, or drop by the station (building C UFV, Abbotsford.) And get some great prizes in appreciation for it! Shirts! Records! The CIVL BIKE! It could all be yours.
