Introduce yourself or your band here.:
We're "da Bugans" gang - aimed at at delivering the hardest, fastest Metal accompanied by lyrical dubbing of in-game mechanics and twisted Lore. Our main focus is get the crowd hyper and hopefully start a few mosh-pits. We have rotating members, depending on their RL schedules, but there are always four members (individual gamers) present at every show. "Sob(randbow)" does most of the work on our Audio, while "Skoch" dubs in all the lyrics. We create everything from scratch, right down to the Midi file if possible. Everyone in the gang has input on the music (if present) as we prefer to work on songs live via TeamSpeak and In-game channels. Often, our music is altered and edited to create an atmosphere of Darkness and foreboding with a splash of comedic improvisation and RP antics. Lastly, we're here to Pwn! "I'm sent here by The Corrupted one"
Competition Bands: Please select possible times for your 1-hour Weatherstock Concert Series show (check ALL that apply).: Sat Jul 18: 6-Midn
I apparently didn't correctly mark all that apply, my apologies. But, we are available to play in the evenings, especially on Saturdays and Sundays. Saturdays being prefered. However, I do not have confirmation on availability for July 4th.
For effect and schedules, we prefer playing in the evenings. Anytime after 6pm is great!
