Last month's Epicentre Lethbridge Battle of the
Bands competition held at The Gate not only provided entertainment
for 300 young rock fans, but also benefited the Lethbridge
Interfaith Food Bank.
The event raised $800 for the food bank through admission charges
and bottled water sales.
Five bands took part in the competition, held as part of the
Epicentre outreach initiative sponsored by area
churches and the Calgary-based Billy Graham Evangelistic
Association of Canada.
Top spot went to Phao, a four-piece group from Lethbridge which
donated its prize, $1,000 in equipment from Note-Able Music, to
second-place finisher Eyes of Isis. Both bands already have
recording studio experience.
Also performing were The Tab, Twisted Crown and Embodied
