Round 1 Of The Rocktagon Throwdown Is Tonight

20 of the best acts in town will compete every Friday in March (except March 29) for a chance to reach the finals on April 5. The winner of each week will be determined by crowd voting and the finals will be determined by a panel of judges.

The four bands who don’t win each week will get a second chance at the finals by online voting at the week of March 25. The winning band earns an opening slot for a national artist at The Orbit Room later this year (to be determined by WGRD and The Orbit Room) and a $500 gift card to Guitar Center, on 28th Street in Kentwood !

Tickets are $5 for those 21 and up and $8 for 16 and up. See the full schedule for March 1st below.
