One of our favorite bands, 80 Proof (a six-piece eclectic rock/reggae band from Southern California), is a finalist in KROQ’s Cabo Wabos Your Shot to Rock contest, which wraps up this Friday. And just in time, the band is releasing a selection of awesome songs directly to YOU.
The app is now live in the App Studio/Find Content to download their music. If you think they are as talented and worthy as we do, please make sure to “like” their contest page to cast your vote! We think 80 Proof has what it takes to win.
Though new to the scene, 80 Proof has undoubtedly found a sound and stage personality that instantly resonates with everyone who encounters them. Since coming together they have been invited to play with national acts such as Pato Banton and headline high profile events including the Girls Gone Wild reality show filming in Fullerton, CA.
Being a top ten finalist in KROQ and Cabo Wabo tequila’s Your Shot to Rock Contest is already a huge accomplishment. Thousands of bands submitted to KROQ’s search for up-and-coming talent in the southern California area. The winner of the contest will perform at Kat Corbett’s Locals Only Show, as well as perform on the KROQ Locals only Stage at Lobster Fest in September!
We love to support a new generation of bands who are using innovative and progressive techniques to distribute their music and embrace their fans. These guys are awesome, and we’re humbly asking the BitTorrent community to give them a hand and help make them a success.
Check them out and don’t forget to vote!
