CounterPoint Culture will kick of SoundDiego LIVE on Thursday.
For the uninitiated, Garage 2 Glory pits two bands against each other in an online battle to the death. SoundDiego fans -- that'd be you -- vote for the band they like best, and the winner gets to play our SoundDiego LIVE event. But this month, it wasn't just a battle of the bands -- it was a battle of the schools.
Counterpoint Culture vied with The Room Downstairs for Garage 2 Glory supremacy, and each one hails from a different college. The Room Downstairs call SDSU their home, while some of Counterpoint Culture's members hail from USD.
Counterpoint Culture emerged triumphant, and are excited to be a part of Garage 2 Glory.
"It’s a great opportunity for us to get our sound out there, and we feel honored to be included," said the band's Andrew Krause. "We really want to make a name for ourselves in the San Diego music scene and this is a good step in that direction."
When asked what the best part of playing the Sept. 27 event would be, Krause did not hesitate.
"The best part of playing the event would be just that: playing," Krause said. "We love to play, to perform. Seeing us play live is definitely a different experience than watching a video or hearing a recording. It would also be cool to meet many of the great people that promote the local San Diego music scene."
Counterpoint Culture will open for the Black Sands and Todo Mundo at the Sept. 27 event. There will also be a VIP happy hour hosted by Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey and, for one lucky winner, a free Epiphone guitar. You can RSVP for the party here.
