It has been weeks in the making, but the Sound Off! 2011 finale has finally arrived. This is a 21 and under battle of the bands, but it isn’t hardly reserved for the kiddies. So much talent has come out of Sound Off! like Sol, Telekinesis, Brite Futures (previously known as Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head), and more. All of these bands are ‘name-drops’ now, but they weren’t when they were performing for panel votes at EMP|SFM. History is being made right now, and you can be a part of it!
The bands who have already shown they have what it takes are Fit For Hounds, Northern Departure, The Oh Wells, and the wild card finalist Tomten. I had the privilege of being a judge for Semi Finals 1 along side folks from Seattle PI, KEXP, and more. We voted in Northern Departure with a gave Tomtem the wild card (each semi-finals round gets a runner up/”wild card” spot. At the end of the first three semi-final rounds, one wild card hopeful gets hand chosen by a panel to play in the finals) spot. Having seen half the lineup already, I can tell you this is going to be one hell of a show! (Please click the band links above to hear samples of their music.)
