As we mentioned previously, RJ Brodsky rocks. As keyboardist for Paul Pfau & the Dimestore Band, he advances to the final stage of Battle to Break Out, a competition for a spot on the main stage at the HFStival.
The sponsors selected 40 bands and posted them on the website for people to cast their vote. We were among the 9 bands chosen to move on to the semi-final round. (Thanks for voting, GTJ readers!) The semi-final round consisted of 3 shows with 3 bands playing live in different venues. Dimestore played that round at Wild Willy’s in Annapolis this past Saturday in front of a panel of judges and the public. They won!
As finalists, they will compete against two other bands to advance to HFStival.
WHEN: Thursday, August 25
WHERE: The 9:30 Club,1301 U St. NW
An Awesome Follow Up:
Just a week later, on Friday, September 2nd, the band will be releasing a CD of original tunes with a show headlining the Rock & Roll Hotel. Click here for ticket info and here for Facebook info.
