Battle of the Bands

This year, SA brought back one of our favorite events from the past – Battle of the Bands! “Who will be crowned the champions with so much talent on this campus?”, you may ask. Your guess is as good as ours. You’ll have a week to vote online and narrow down the top 10 bands to the top five, who will perform at the event on November 16. Then, on the night of the live battle, you’ll be able to text vote for your favorite band to win big prizes!
