Re: Instant Band: Song Fight Edition

Yep. I wanted to get the sign ups during the gap between the deadline and the new title. I may post this again in the prefight thread to see if anyone else is interested. We already have enough sign ups for at least a couple of groups. Having seen who signed up, super groups is probably more accurate.

Wow. Hope you like Berkeley Social Scene this week. We have a collaborative track and you also get solo tracks from Lunkhead and Glennny.

Re: Instant Band: Song Fight Edition

My thought was that the group would make that decision rather than it be assigned, or are you suggesting it is a role in addition to the others? Even when we did this in person, someone eventually had to take the lead and get the group working together.

Instant Band: Song Fight Edition

Hi All, Before the pandemic and shelter in place orders, Sam and I were going to an event in Berkeley called, "Instant Band Night." It was a lot of fun for us because we got to make up songs with other local musicians. It was really low pressure, and everyone was really nice. Basically, you showed u...

Re: The Endless Song Fight (Jukebox) Playlist

I'm going to choose Abecedarian's A Promise is a Promise next. This is a really great song by a talented and nice guy. They've entered under a handful of different names, but this is the track that hooked me.

Hi All,
I tried to get this song in, but it arrived too late to be included in the fight. Maybe someone will listen to it here.
