Yesterday night was the first of several battle of the bands for the Juarez Music Fest. The first four bands were composed of San Ligre, Viva Las Vegas, Zenith, and Flamél! Bands ranging from indie rock to "space" rock! They are local bands from Juarez and El Paso who battled for a chance to play at the festival where they will open for bands with world-wide success.
All the organizers from festival were present. What was made clear was this: "We can't grow, if there isn't support". Meaning that the festival has grown since it first started, but it cannot continue to grow unless people give it a chance and go! It is a festival with several bands from a wide variety. It is as much for a fan of rock music as it is for a fan of norteñas!!
There will be a lot of activities to do while a band you are not fond of is playing.!! Get tickets at donboleton.com! Bands like Cafe Tacuba, Los Tigres del Norte, and Kinky will be there!
Congratulations to Viva las Vegas (first place) and San Ligre (second place) who won last night for a chance to play at the festival!
Thank you to all the organizers!
