Bandfandango is a concept dreamed up here at HUP HQ last year, as a way to create a bunch of new bands. Basically, any interested musicians (and non-musicians) email us stating what they would like to play in the band and what type of music they would like their new band to play. We then drew names from a 'hat' and created brand new bands.
Those new bands - Closet Octopus, Kandy Finish, Hippo Crypts, and Cardio Farce - then had to come up with a band name, write three new original songs, and play them live - along with a cover of their choice - at the Finale show, which last year took place at a packed out Nivara Lounge.
This year's Bandfandango will take place throughout April with the Finale being held on May 26 at Nivara Lounge.
It is not for the faint-hearted and some commitment is required. On the other hand it can be a shitload of fun. Interested? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org telling us what instrument and type of music you want to play and we will put you in the draw!
