Two proud bands vie for big money
Queer audiophiles in Ottawa will be watching the outcome of this year's Live 88.5 FM Big Money Shot competition.
Two queer, or at least queer-friendly, bands have made it into the third round of the annual search for explosive local talent, which kicks off tonight at Ritual Nightclub.
Five-piece girl band Apocalypstic take to the stage tonight, Wednesday, Sept 12 at 10:30pm, while Xtra cover darlings The PepTides perform Saturday, Sept 15 at 9:45pm.
Both bands played Capital Pride last month. The winner will be awarded a substantial monetary prize, although the exact amount varies from year to year. Previous winner Amanda Rheaume was awarded $40,000. Six bands from the current group of 15 will move on to round four.
