We at Rock On Philly thought it was the best time to spotlight local college acts by hosting our first-ever Rock On Philly Battle of the College Bands at the Hard Rock Cafe on Friday, October 23rd.

In order to compete, at least 1 member of the band had to be currently enrolled in college. Four local acts have already been selected from an online submission process and include Distressor, Baby Blitz, Andorra and INDIGOLDEach act brings something unique to the competition. Distressor has that too-cool, grunge rock attitude but Baby Blitz’s indie folk vibes will capture your heart; Andorra’s alternative rock awesomeness and INDIGOLD’s genre-mixing hybrid of indie-pop and hip-hop round out the competition with an eclectic reflection of our fair city.

Out of these four bands, the winner will be chosen by a panel of industry judges and fans at the event through Best Overall Score.
