(Added Oct. 2001) – Oh man … this was our first (and last) battle of the bands showcase. We paid $40 to play because the winner was promised a record contract. We know now that this is a scam, but at the time we thought for sure we would win and get signed. Nope. I remember being really impressed by Punchin’ Judy. We still have some of their stickers on our equipment and in our van.
