On Friday April 22nd, the fury was real in the Battle of the Band hosted by Molloy Performing Arts Club, Gaelic Society and the Ultimate Frisbee Club. Five bands fought it out to come out on top and receive the $25 Guitar Center gift card for each member of the winning band.

The doors opened and the fans poured into Hays Theatre. Little by little as the night progressed, fans moved to the very front of the stage to cheer on their favorites.            

Skyward Effect opened up the night with covers giving the audience Blink - 182 vibes. Two Chances Too Late, Greg Frank The Tank, The Radiance and Dear Anonymous kept the crowd dancing and on their feet. 32 Pints, the winners of the night, had an authentic sound, one of their own, separating them from the other bands and making them stand out to the audience.            

The night ended with each band shouting out the others and expressing how grateful they were to be a part of the event. Overall, the night was a tremendous success bringing new fans to these homegrown bands and giving their fans a night to remember.
