This April, new Leeds club Fracqture (located on Assembly Street) are kicking off a Battle of the Bands competition with the winning band or musician receiving a brand new car.

The competition starts on Wednesday 29th April and runs for 19 weeks. It is preceded by Open Mic nights, which will run for the next 3 weeks on every Wednesday from 8pm – 11pm.

Organisers are now looking for Leeds bands wishing to take part in the evening. If anyone wants to get further information or wishes to sign up they need to request an application form by email to kirstyhughes2008 [ at ] Bands will also be required to submit a CD or a couple of music tracks that best represent them.

The event will be hosted by Choices Entertainment and voted for online until the quarter finals, after which a judging panel will take over.

The First Prize is a new car, and the Second Prize will consist of Marshall amplifying equipment.
