It's time for all the punks, the rap spitters, the jazz messengers, the acoustic alchemists, the singer-songwriters, the metalheads, the R&B crooners, EDM naval-gazers, the countrified outlaws and the indie stalwarts and all you purveyors of organized noise—er, musicians—to enter The Local Showdown.

In the spirit of overcoming Old Pueblo summertime desolation and its literal and metaphorical dust, join venerable institution The Rock and Tucson Weekly for what we're calling the First Annual Local Showdown. Check it, we’ve extended the submission date to June 22. So enter your act now to strut it out on a worthy stage, where, um, "Legends are Made,” with pro sound and lights to back you up. When all's said and done, you might just blastoff a launchpad of total greatness.

The Local Showdown is a summer-long showcase─”a killer kinda Battle of the Bands contest,” if you will─where local bands/musicians, from all genres and ages, battle it out before a panel of music aficionados to decide a winner.

At the end of the contest those who prevail reap spoils. Prizes include: A feature story in Tucson Weekly, professional studio recording & music video shoot (for a single), merch & marketing packages and a mini-tour (plus gas/food cards). Not to mention bragging rights.

The Showdown kicks off June 30 with subsequent rounds on July 8 & 22, Aug. 5 with semi-finals on Aug. 19. Finals will be held Sept. 9.

To enter into the competition simply submit a video or audio link (YouTube, SoundCloud, bandcamp, etc.) by June 22 to TucsonWeekly@tucsonlocalmedia.com. Only the first 150 submissions will be accepted.

Pre-sale tickets are $6 (with a cut to the bands). $8 at the door. All events to be held at The Rock, 136 N. Park Avenue, (520) 629-9211. Shows start at 6 p.m.
