And to think you saw them BEFORE they were famous…

Get ready to be AMAZED by the talent and creativity that is radiating out of high schools across our region! Experience Music Project (EMP)  has been hosting an annual band competition called Sound Off!. It supports the all-ages scene by giving young artists an opportunity to showcase original music, launch their music careers, and connect with the larger artistic community. All participants are 21 or under and residents of Washington, Oregon, British Columbia, or Idaho. Now in its 13th year, Sound Off! has paved the way for some amazing bands and artists including The Lonely Forest, Dyme Def, Sol, Kithkin, Schoolyard Heroes, Tomten, and Brite Futures.

After a month of widdling down the artists to just three groups, this coming Saturday, March 1st, at 7 p.m.  is The Finals where they will compete for the final prize. The event costs only $10 and is well worth it when you may be seeing the next big band!
