STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — It was a night for the drums at the 6th Annual Battle of the Boroughs competition Friday night, where Staten Island’s eight best bands were whittled down to just three.
Bands in genres ranging from rap to dream punk competed in the WNYC and WQXR contest, which gives emerging bands a chance to play in front of a live Manhattan audience and the ears of industry professionals.
“We count on Staten Island every year to come in here and kick the doors in,” said Helga Davis, one of three judges who gave constructive criticism to each of the eight bands who performed Friday in the radio stations’ Greene Space.
Each borough performs on a different night each week. This week it’s Staten Island’s turn to show the rest of NYC what its music is made of. Judges especially complimented each band’s drummer.
THE FINAL THREE
At the end of the evening, the top three bands were selected after a period of voting. Staten Island bands The Atlicic, Sicada and Harvey Champagne are the top three musicians in the contest, with the final winner announced March 6. The final winner will compete against the other boroughs’ winners.
