Billings Band will open for SlipKnot

This Monday at the Railyard, 3 Billings bands will compete to open for SlipKnot at MetraPark on Wednesday, August 26th.

Last week, 20 local bands submitted their demos to The Zone 96.3 and listeners voted on their favorites to determine the finalists. The three lucky bands include EndEver, Grudge, and Zen In Zion. Each band gets a 30 minute set at the Railyard on Monday to determine the winner.

Good Luck to all three. I'm sure they've all had several sleepless nights practicing up for the opportunity.

Anthrax cancelled their tour dates slated with Slipknot back in July due to the departure of vocalist, Dan Nelson. This left room for the Battle of the Bands competition...a fun way to promo the show, get the locals involved, and make one local bands dreams come true.
