EMP’s annual Sound Off! competition, which bills itself as “the Northwest’s Premier 21 & Under Battle of the Bands,” is currently accepting applications for its 2015 concerts, which will take place next February and March at the museum. Tell all the underage rockers you know (according to official rules, only groups and artists “21 and under,” limited to “Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia,”) to get up on this! So many great bands have participated over the fest’s 13 year history—The Lonely Forest, Kithkin, Tomten, Vox Mod, to name a few—and now’s the time for the best youth band you know to have the chance, too. The deadline to apply is Monday, November 3. Click here to link through to the Sound Off! 2015 application.
