September is shaping up to a busy month for unsigned bands in Southern California. First there's the opportunity for them to submit their material to play on the Ernie Ball stage at Epicenter in a few weeks. Now, there's a different battle of the bands coming from a much different source.
Slidebar has teamed up with Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare to give an unsigned band the chance of lifetime. Well, that may be a bit over the top, but this could be an awesome opportunity for a local unsigned band. The bar will host the Rob Zombie's 'Great American Nightmare' Battle of the Bands showcase, which will run in September and October.
The 'Great American Nightmare' is a Halloween and music horror event that will be held every Thursday through Sunday from the October 10 through November 2 at the FEARPlex in Pomona. Zombie will headline the festival's final evening
The first round of concerts are set for Sept. 9, 16, 23 and 25. From those events, four finalists will be selected and will face-off on October 6 for the right to play the Monster Energy Main Stage
To enter the competition, bands should email here by September 13. Each entry should include band name, genre, Facebook page, Twitter handle, contact name, and email address.
