Here is my score sheet for the SPAC Battle of the Bands. It features my score, followed my the scores of the three judges (all on a scale of 10):

The Mighty Nautilus 3 – 7 7 7
Orchard 6 – 8 6 7
Vesper ? – 10 9 9
Miracle of Madness 8 – 7 6 6
Mirk & the New Familiars 9 – 9 9 9
Branchwater 4 – 7 7 7
The Folkadelics 7 – 7 8 8

It was cool to see all these acts – except for Vesper – for the first time. Unfortunately, I missed the Vesper set due to pizza at Pies on Wheels. Oh, by the way, the pizza was a 10.”

Thanks for the report, Tim.

And congrats to Vesper and all of the other bands who made it to the finals on Friday out of more than 100 bands who entered the competition. Nice job.

And here’s our Five Firsts with Vesper bandleader Aaron Lewis from last week, just in case you missed it.
