San Ramon: Teen rock bands needed for showcase

'Battle of the bands' event to connect teens with resources to combat depression, anxiety

Teenage rock bands are needed for a performance at the San Ramon Community Center for a "battle of the bands" type event where the reaction from the crowd is nearly as important as the overall quality of a band’s music.

All participating members of the bands will be receive a special recognition and thank-you award for their contributions to the show, but one band in particular will be designated with top honors and receive a free studio concert as well as a MP3 and MP4, for being the ultimate shredder.

Local music teachers will judge bands on their best two to four songs, grading them on two main criteria; the quality and composition of the bands music, and how many teenage friends they were able to bring to the event.

The event is being put on by Lafayette based charity A Brighter Day which strives to help kids and teenagers deal with depression, anxiety and other related issues through music. Live shows are a good opportunity for kids to connect, de-stress and be given access to the resources needed to help identify and treat the aforementioned issues.

Past shows have had speakers from the music industry tell stories in between sets about their personal experiences and dealing with depression.

Food will also be available for attendees.

A Brighter Day Rock Band Showcase is both free to register for bands and enter for their fans. Local teenagers can register online.

Hosted by A Brighter Day, the event is sponsored by the city of San Ramon, town of Danville, Primo's Pizzeria & Pub, Danville Chocolates and the School of Rock.

The show is scheduled to be held Saturday Jan. 26, from 7 to 11:59 p.m. at the San Ramon Community Center, 12501 Alcosta Blvd.
