This Sunday, Nov. 22, the Mattress Firm will host its Battle of the Bands Showdown at the Mohawk Austin. Doors open at 2:30 p.m. with no entry fee though there is a suggested donation to AustinMusicPeople! and Kids In A New Groove.
Local musicians are encouraged to post their material on social media and use the hashtag #MFRMShowdown to participate in the battle. The showdown continues until 7:30 p.m. at which time the judges will tally the votes submitted by the audience. The winning act will take home $5,000 and a chance to perform at the 2016 National BedTalks Conference. All participants receive a guaranteed $500 for their performance.
Once the votes are in and winner announced, the afterparty and celebration continues until 10 p.m. with a performance by Holiday Mountain.
