Update November 3rd: We love local photos.
Update October 30th: Rock Fight has wrapped up it's first season with a deserving winnner.
Once again, The Homegrown Zine gives us some great insight into how the evening went down. While all the bands put on a championship effort, local rock band The IZM took home the top prize. If you don't know anything about The IZM, ListenUp Myrtle Beach has a great write-up on the band that you can read here. We've got some samples of their music here and there's much more on their ReverbNation profile.
Update October 26th: With the overwhelming number of Halloween events this weekend in Myrtle Beach, some very cool local events may get lost in the noise.
But Rock Fight's final battle and line-up is certain to bring the noise in a great way. Butter's has also announced they have a new website, ButtersPub.tk, that will live stream the Friday night Rock Battle.
Here's the announced line-up of finalists in no particular order (with links to their Facebook pages):
- Circles of Autumn (Myrtle Beach, SC)
- With Intent (Charleston, SC)
- The IZM (Myrtle Beach, SC)
- TreeHouse (Myrtle Beach, SC)
- Shamroc - N - DJ QP (Myrtle Beach, SC)
First Report: Butter's Pub in Socastee hosted the first "Rock Fight" this weekend and it sounds like it may be worth checking out the next couple weeks of semi-final rounds.
Rock Fight is a battle of the bands competition that has already attracted acts from all over the region. ListenUp Myrtle Beach gave a preview of the event on Friday. Read that here. Then a new local website called The Homegrown Zine followed up this morning with a great post-show review of how the show went and who advanced to the final round. Get the scoop here.
Rock Fight is scheduled for all of October with semi-final battles taking place every Friday night. The goal is to have 6 bands compete with 2 finalists selected each round until the big final round on October 28th where the best of the best will throw down.
