The Shake Ups and more
Saturday, Jan. 27, 6 p.m.-2 a.m., $5
Zanies Too will host its first MySpace Battle of the Bands contest Saturday. Only the bands that are friends of Zanies online will perform, so if you want to see everything, you’d better get there early.
Aside from the door cover cash prize and exposure to two local promotion companies, Shamrock and Revolution, who are judging in the final round, the winning band also gets an automatic date to play on the Zanies Too stage.
“You can expect everything,” says Chuck McFarland, the event’s coordinator and sound man. “Originals … covers — there’s no exclusion, except solo acoustic.”
In any case, you might want to bring earplugs.
