Once again a happily packed Bishop’s Lounge battle has come down to an awfully hard decision, and each band threw musical gas on the fire last night to be make it even harder to decide in the aftermath. The jury was jumpin’, the judges were split… so although we happily congratulate Shokazoba on advancing to the FINALS at Electric Haze on April 1, we have nothing but thanks, appreciation and encouragement for Ballads and Softcore Porn andBoom & The SoundShakers and what they brought to these bountiful battles. This leaves two more finalists to find – TONIGHT at the lovely The Stone Church Meeting House in Newmarket NH, and Thursday at Black Eyed Sally’s in Hartford. Keep supporting local live music, there’s SO much goodness out there!
