Attention Houston-Area High School Musicians: Want to Win $500?
High School Rock Off House of Blues Houston 1204 Caroline Street Houston, TX 77002Bands who register online incur a non-refundable $10 registration fee, but only need to send $50 to the above address. Deadline is 5 p.m. Friday, December 18. Rocks Off isn't quite an expert in these matters - it's been a long time since we were in high school - but it seems to us you might stand a better chance to win if you're already in a band and not just starting one after you read this. But who knows? Rock and roll careers have certainly been built on less. Also, there might be a small chance your band will be selected to perform at the House of Blues in Dallas, but don't let that stop you. Think of it as your first lesson in touring. Bands selected to perform will compete before a judge's panel on January 8. Since Rocks Off is sponsoring this thing, we assume one of us will be there. First place wins 500 clams, an opening slot for a national act at House of Blues and a trophy. Second place gets $200 and third $100. Bands who are not selected to perform will have their $60 (or $50) returned, so you can buy another video game. Luckily, the holidays are coming up, so you should have plenty of time to practice. Good luck!
