As a favor I am posting this notice about an event that looks like it might be fun:

Battle of the Bands

The requirement is that at least one member of the band must work for a New England-area technology or life sciences company or a venture-capital or private-equity firm that invests in technology. All levels of bands are welcome—from club veterans to garage hackers. All musical styles are welcome – entry deadline is Dec 12, 2008.

The event will take place on January 22, 2009 at the Middle East in Cambridge. Last year Jeet "Miki" Singh, co-founder of Art Technology Group and lead singer for the Indo-Euro band Dragonfly and Patrick Faucher, President and co-founder of Nimbit, were judges, plus others. This year 2 charities have been selected to split 50% of the ticket sales: Community Music Center of Boston (http://www.cmcb.org/) and the Science Club for Girls (http://scienceclubforgirls.org/). More information follows with the link to the site.
