Rockitz Battle of the Bands continues
Rockitz Battle of the Bands Fall 2009
By Brooke Saunders
The Rockitz Battle of the Bands Fall 2009 semi-finals have wrapped up, with a finale set for Saturday, January 23rd, at the Playing Field (7801 West Broad Street), in Richmond, Virginia. The scores were tallied, and the top five bands are performing are: 59H2O, A Good Natured Riot, Caught In The Rift, Jim O'Ferrell Band, and the Velvet Nines.
During the ten-show battle (from September to November), judges at each show considered stage presence, musicianship, vocals, songwriting, and other factors. All attendees received a ballot allowing them to cast a vote for their favorite artist to show attendance levels, which was factored into the final scores. The fifteen bands involved in the semi-finals are some of the very best Richmond has to offer.
