Xconomy - an online publisher, content provider and networking site at the intersection of business and technology - what they call the "exponential economy" (ah, those were the days), is sponsoring their second Boston Battle of the Tech Bands this January.
Bands that want to enter have to sign up by midnight this coming Friday (December 12th).
At least one member of your band must work for a New England-area technology or life sciences company or a venture-capital or private-equity firm that invests in technology. All levels of bands are welcome—from club veterans to garage hackers. All musical styles are welcome.
For groupies and tech networkers, the battle will be joined on Thursday, January 22, 2009, at - WHERE ELSE? - the Middle East Restaurant and Nightclub, 472 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA.
Doors open at 7 p.m.
Meanwhile, I will get notes out to Drew, my former boss, who was in a locally well-known tech band, Look and Feel, back in the day; and to Kris, a former colleague, who played in a band - the name escapes me, although I do have a CD somewhere - that actually had some national legs (and which also played, I believe, at the Middle East).
For the Battle of the Bands, all the info's here.
And while we're on the subject, if you want to read an earlier post of mine on Rock 'n Roll Fantasy Camp, here you go.
