After last night's Battle of the Bands, Smith Union is still ringing. Eight bands signed up to compete for the chance to be the opening act of the Ivies concert on April 30, with Call It The Truth coming out on top.
Call It The Truth includes members Justin Foster '11, Nate Joseph '13, Mikel McCavana '12 and Fhiwa Ndou '13.
"I had some friends who performed," said Rachel Turkel '11. "I was really excited to hear the possibilities for an Ivies opener."
The Battle of the Bands featured student bands Call It The Truth, The Neeks, Room 10'09, The Deadbeats, The Narps, Brillo, Fixed Million and Mr. Suds.
The Entertainment Board allowed any band with two or more members—at least one of whom was an instrumentalist—to participate.
"We're really excited for the battle this year because we have a lot of really great bands," said Antonio Watson '12.
This year's judges panel included Director of Safety and Security Randy Nichols as well as professors Michael Danahy and Aba Mbirika.
