Broward-Palm Beach Battle of the Bands Acts Coming Soon

Good morning, local rockers. Perhaps some of you slept better last night than you have ever before. That would either be because of the mixture of intoxicants you ingested, or because destiny is on your side. The in-house selection panel (including yours truly) started out with 22 acts, and narrowed the field to our five favorites for Saturday's Broward-Palm Beach New Times Battle of the Bands at America's Backyard

(200 E. Broward Blvd., Fort Lauderdale) from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The night's winner goes on to entertain the Beerfest throngs April 17.

We can't release the names just yet, but know that the field was packed with solid local entries. Our criteria was simple: which five acts can rock a stage and carry the day? But narrowing it down was not simple at all. Thanks to all the submissions, and expect a look at our five competitors coming soon.
