But before the party even begins there is a contest at the Fine Line Music Cafe that has been going on and will continue for the next few weeks for a spot on one of the stages at the Block Party.
So, Thursday, June 18th there will a round of Battle of the Bands at the Basilica Block Party. Fine Line tickets are not needed for this event, however, there is only a 4 dollar cover at the door. There are three bands competing at this round: Dim Light Shining, Stealing Seconds, & Postina.
If you're looking for something cheap to do on a Thursday night it looks like this is your best bet!
