Blackwatch’s Pop Our Gig Cherry Contest

Blackwatch, a local cover band billing themselves as “a Minneapolis band performing rock covers with in-your-face intensity,” is hosting a clever “Pop Our Gig Cherry Contest” to try to book themselves an inaugural local gig.

Here’s what you “win”

  • 50 people through the door guaranteed
  • A kickass set (apparently featuring classics from Tool, Ratt, Alterbridge, Motley Crue, Buckcherry, Weezer, Guns N’ Roses)
  • But most of all..the desire and ability..to rock

I can’t tell that the video soundtrack is actually them performing. Their MySpace doesn’t have any music, and neither does their Web site. However, it does promise something big is coming July 23.

Maybe we’re early? I hate it when I get to shows early. In fact, that’s usually when I hear cover bands.

    This video must have been discovered on a then-unlinked page. The video page is now linked, there are music samples up, and the contest is in full swing. We did quite a bit of pondering about what we could offer a headlining act, and surmised that every band wants new fans. We really hope to be invited to play, and also hope to bring in well over 50 people. Your coverage on our little contest is appreciated!

    Respectfully,

    Blackwatch
