Check out this series of live videos that Hong Kong-based venue The Aftermath has just released.
Here’s the full writeup from the venue themselves:
“With live music silenced, The Aftermath will be premiering new videos of live band performances from their Battle of the Bands competition on YouTube and IGTV. The Battle of the Bands playoffs was meant to be 16 bands facing off throughout 4 heated nights at The Aftermath last January but due to the 5th wave, this part of the competition went digital with the bands filming 20-min performances for the judges and audience to vote on. It is still hoped that the 4 finalists (Hybrid Stereo, Murphy’s Law, Brother Plainview, and Andy is Typing) will be able to play their hearts out to become the ultimate indie band of the year in the finale with, David Boring and Nowhere Boys, two already established and popular bands.
The event focuses on showcasing emerging musical talent who have applied for the competition. The judging will be by a committee of well-established people in the local music & arts industry as well as by the audience who will vote for the grand prize winner. The grand prizes are a day of recording at Sunset Studio, a spot at the ASEAN Music Festival, and more to be announced!”
