Battle of the bands is in spring, but my band is starting to practice now. i'm not sure if this is in the right forum, but can someone explain the rules of battle of the bands to me? i think they differ from place to place, but can you give advice and explain rules a bit, maybe even songs to play. thank you

That is all.

Mastering your instrument is being able to play whatever you hear in your head, unhindered by inadequate technique. After that, it's all about what you've got to say, so there would be no "best," just a bunch of people saying exactly what they mean.

Battles of the Bands are lame. My advice would be to not participate in them.

I guess if it's a school thing it's kind of fun, but don't take it too seriously.

Anything called a "Battle of the Bands" that isn't a high school thing is something you should avoid completely.

You play a set of originals or covers, and are either judged by judges or vote. If it's judges, be sure to
- nail all of your parts
- move around on stage
- get the crowd active
-Don't be shy.

The Pit is to intelligence what a black hole is to light; it's devoid of reason and logic, and nothing can escape it's shadowy depths. Once you enter, you cannot leave.

yes, it is a high school battle of the bands, and an older friend said that they got points for not moving around the stage, and for their keyboard player switching to a trumpet.

When I was eight, me and my best friend started "practicing for girls".
Which involved us going into the woods, and him sticking his dick in my ass.
The last time we did it, his sister caught us.
