Battle of the Garage Bands
July 23 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm$10 - $15
The search is on! LiftMaster, the nation’s leader in Garage Door Openers, is searching for the best unsigned band in America.
Battle of the Garage Bands presented by LiftMaster is a nationwide search for unsigned musical artists. Bands uploaded a video of an original song and fans voted for their favorite. The two top vote getting bands will fly to Chicago and “Battle It Out LIVE” in front of our celebrity judges and concert audience to win a prize package worth approximately $40,000+.
Judging the final Battle of the Garage Bands will be Singer/Songwriter Dee Snider, Producer Johnny K, and Chicago Icon Chip Z’Nuff.
LiftMaster is donating the proceeds from this event to the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. This charity provides financial assistance to all types of career musicians who are struggling to make ends meet while facing illness, disability, or age-related problems. In other words, Healing Musicians in Need.
Also this Sunday, July 23 at Wicker Park’s 1st Ward Events, Speedfreak will thrash it out against Minneapolis’ own Sin City Escape, making this a true Midwestern fight to the finish.
