The Empire Strikes Back: Can You Handle The Truth Saturday

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
How confident are you in your music, band image and marketing? How much do you want real feedback from people who work with bands everyday? Think of it like our version of The Voice. The panel reviews artist submissions publicaly with brutally honest feedback. How's the band's sound? The name and logo? The photos and artwork? The website? The social posts? What is the band doing right, and what can they improve on? Get the critique you crave from the experts. IF you can handle the truth! Bands will submit and be notified in advance if they are placed in one of the 5 minute critique time slots (time includes playing of music).
