Patch will be starting collecting entries for our Video Battle of the Bands contest starting on April 9.
The contest will pit bands from nearly three dozens communities in Greater Boston, the North Shore, Merrimack Valley, South Shore and Cape Cod and the Islands.
The contest will work this way:
We’ll ask local bands to upload a video of themselves performing an original song starting on Monday, April 9. We’ll collect entries over two weeks.
On Monday, April 23, we’ll kick off a regional competition across Eastern Massachusetts. Voters will be able to comment and tell us their favorites.
Voting for the first round will close on Friday, May 4.
The top two winners from each regional group (North Shore/Merrimack Valley, Boston/Greater Boston North and Greater Boston South/South Shore/Cape Cod and the Islands) will go to a final round, which kicks off on Monday, May 7. The finals will run until noon Friday, May 18.
We’ll announce the winners on Monday, May 21.
Check back on April 9 when we start accepting entries and to see the great prizes we have lined up! Get those videos ready for upload on April 9!
