0 Grudge Rock Re-Match: Akimbo vs. Helms Alee

YES! Here's all the info you'll need concerning tonight's big Grudge Rock re-match: Akimbo vs. Helms Alee. If you haven't attended a Grudge Rock yet, this is will be an excellent first time.

Grudge Rock : Rock N' Roll Family Feud at The Re-Bar Thursday Sept. 1st

In our first year of Grudge Rock we were blessed with a titanic battle between two of Seattle's best bands, as HELMS ALEE defeated AKIMBO. Akimbo swore revenge, but the busy schedules of both bands have kept them from competition until NOW! Now witness the first-ever Grudge Rock rematch!
The Re-Bar
1114 Howell St. (Howell at Boren)
21+ $8
9pm doors show starts exactly at 10pm

Witness this blood feud boil over onto the floor of The Re-Bar! Will Helms Alee take the Grudge Rock crown again? Will Akimbo claim their righteous vengeance? Honestly, you should read the email thread I have from booking this show, there's some serious shit-talking going on between these two bands!

One band will win and get ALL THE DOOR MONEY!
One band will lose and get FABULOUS CONSOLATION PRIZES!
Both bands PLAY LIVE and rock the Re-Bar down to the ground!

Every month for the last two years we have taken two local bands and made them play the classic game show Family Feud, hosted by Professor Jake Stratton (announcer for the Rat City Rollergirls and former vocalist for BloodHag), with all the questions being about what the bands know best: Music. We ask about 5 questions per half (about 20 minutes), and each team scores points.
The band that leads at the end of the first half gets to choose whether they want to play a set right then or at the end of the show. A band plays, then we take a brief break and on with the second half.
Whichever band has the most points at the end of the second half is the winner and gets the coveted prize: All the door money and their name on our Grudge Rock Plaque of Fame.
The loser gets to take home a plethora of Fabulous Consolation Prizes and any groupies they can cull from the audience.

We’ve had all manner of great bands go head to head in our two year history: Akimbo vs. Helms Alee, Mad Rad vs. They Live, Head Like A Kite vs. BOAT, Patrol vs. The Abodox, Thee Emergency vs. A Gun That Shoots Knives, The Quiet Ones vs. the Cute Lepers, Skelator vs. Scorched Earth, Lesbian vs. The Family Curse, He Whose Ox Is Gored vs Grenades, We Wrote The Book On Connectors vs M.Bison and many more.
