I had the pleasure of interviewing Michael Ent, director of the Battle of the Bands for NorCal Spirit here at broken yesterday May 11, 2009. Michael is the pastor of Hope Christian Fellowship in Novato and is in charge of gathering 24 bands to battle it out for a chance to go on to play at NorCal Spirit August 15, 2009 in Novato California. The winner will get a cash proze, recording time and be the opening band for Sanctus Real . So far there are 4 bands signed up but more are needed, if you are interested at a chance to go big time email Michael and send him a demo or a youtube video of your band. Even though this is Christian concert you dont have to be a "christian" band but your stuff has to be clean since it will a family event.
