Phyrst Jam Sesh Competition for Year Long Gig

If local bands and Red Bull are your calling, the Phyrst has a promotion for you, and it’s their own Phyrst Jam Sesh Competition, happening the next two Monday’s.

“Head bangers, instrumentalists, garage bands, vocalists, band geeks, and anyone else who likes to jam! We’re looking for local up and coming bands to battle it out Jam Style for a gig at the Phyrst,” the bar said in a Facebook post.

The contest, which started yesterday, will feature four bands a night in 45 minute sets, with the first two and the last two competing against each other in an attempt to gain a spot in the finals, which will be held on April 23rd.

What do the winners receive, you ask? A year long gig at the Phyrst, and a year’s supply of Red Bull.

The schedule of bands playing is below.
