2 local bands, Eyeshine and Jake Newtown will be among the final 7 bands in the “gimme the gig” competition at a concert to be held at the Whiskey on Thursday evening. The winner of the competition will have the chance to have 2 tracks the produced by Don Was.
Since I started following Gimme the Gig I’ve been watching the local bands climb up and make it to the finals. Once my favorite local band was knocked out of the competition I really started watchin’ for a band that struck a cord. Ultimately that would be Eyeshine, of course I will share the love and support the other local too.
Just in case you were wondering, I know I’ve blogged about Gimme the Gig before (I’ve lost the link) but this is a Ford event sponsored by them and Don Was to give new bands a shot at growing their fan base. If you want to vote for a favorite or get more info on the event check out the link HERE.
